Philippe Lancelot

A very  small estate founded in the mid-1970s by Philippe’s parent who had each inherited some vines around Cramant: in Chouilly, Oiry and Avize, as well as in Epernay and Aÿ.

A very  small estate founded in the mid-1970s by Philippe’s parent who had each inherited some vines around Cramant: in Chouilly, Oiry and Avize, as well as in Epernay and Aÿ. While they reinforce organic practices since 2004, they are using biodynamics since 2011 on all plots. The idea is to get to know and understand as best they can, the DNA of each terroir so they can create, year after year, champagnes that that each have their own identity and that reflect their ideas, their imagination and the character of each vintage. Purity, singularity and elegance are what they value the most. As far as the wine itself is concerned, they have been working with Hervé Justin since 2009 (pope of biodynamy in champagne) and use little, or no, sulphur during the winemaking. Brilliance, sparkle and expression are the themes that they are looking for as well as a natural balance in the wines at disgorging that makes dosage unnecessary. If Philippe had to sum up everything he has learned, he would say: Mother Nature is a masterpiece that I can never hope to surpass!
