About This Wine
From several of their 40 y/o+ plots of vines around the Premier Cru village of Ecueil, this Blanc de Noirs Champagne is complex, elegant and rich.
Vibrant in the mouth, this wine is a pure expression of Pinot Noir from Ecueil; spicy, persistent with a fine boned structure.
Mi-Pente means 'mid-slope', where the best vineyards are often to found on vineyard hillsides...
While this is a non-vintage release, the quality of this wine will also lend itself to evolution with careful cellaring, allowing the complexity of the wine to deepen, and the texture to flesh itself out over time.
About Champagne Lacourte-Godbillon
Located on the western slopes of Montagne de Reims, the wines of Lacourte-Godbillon are sourced from their holdings in and around the Premier Cru village of Ecueil.
Grower-producers in the truest sense of the word, they control all the aspects of their own viticulture, winemaking and cellaring. The first wines released under this house were in 1947.
Now run by the 4th-generation of the family, Geraldine Lacourte-Godbillon, they own 8.5 ha of vines, mainly Pinot Noir.
Farming without chemicals, they are currently in the process of converting their vineyards to biodynamics.
