Story

Champagne Lombard is a small family owned Champagne estate located in Epernay, just north of the prestigious Cotes des Blancs. It was founded in 1925 by Robert Andrieu, a farmer coming from Southwest of France. His son-in-law, Philippe Lombard, took over the family estate in the 1960’s. His son, Thierry Lombard, currently manages the estate. The Lombard family owns 10 hectares of vineyards located in the Montagne de Reims, in the Vallée de l’Ardre and in the Cote des Bars. All of the vineyards of the estate are farmed sustainably, some are even in organic conversion. The family is also sourcing grapes from the best terroirs of Champagne among the prestigious Grand Crus of “Mesnil-sur-Oger”, “Avize”, “Cramant”, “Chouilly”, in the Cote des Blancs, “Verzenay” and “Ambonnay” in the Montagne de Reims. The “Caves” of Lombard that are stretching across two levels and adjoining streets over a 1.5 miles have been carved out of the chalk.

Vineyard

Specialized in Premiers and Grands crus, the Lombard family focuses on expressing the identity of each Terroir with minimal to no dosage. The selection of the grapes for this cuvée have been chosen from the villages classified in the Premier crus of Grauves and Vertus and the Grand Crus of Bouzy and Verzenay. They have been selected for quality and character to elaborate this Premier Cru Brut Rosé.

Vinification

Champagne Lombard focuses on “selection parcellaire” by isolating every vineyard during the fermentation and aging process in order to preserve the singularity and quintessence of each terroir. This Champagne Brut Rose Premier Cru is a blend of 40% Pinot Noir (from Bouzy and Verzenay) and 50% Chardonnay (Cuis, Grauves and Vertus from Cotes des Blancs) classified Premier Cru, including 10% Pinot Noir vinified in red coming from the Grand Cru Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims. The disgorgement date is displayed on the back label. The base vintage for this cuvee is 2013.

Tasting Notes

Elegant subtle palate with savory small red berries, along with cherry tart and mild spices. An ample, generous finish, complete this savory rose.

Food Pairing

This elegant rose will pair perfectly with grilled salmon or cheese such as chaource.
