LACOURTE GODBILLON TERROIRS D'ECUEIL CHAMPAGNE NV

0.00

85% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay. 2013 vintage with 44 % reserve wines from 2012 and 2011 vintages, from terroirs Écueil 95% and Les Mesneux 5%.  This wine sees a minimum 30 months resting on lees before disgorgement, and a dosage of 7g/L.

Quite simply, a gorgeous Champagne and a lovely introduction to the house style.  A medium to fine bead with aromatics of vanillin, nectarine and peach fruit.  Complex in the mouth and certainly vinous, there's some creaminess, balanced with rocky/flinty underpinnings giving length and complexity.  Mouthfilling, and further impressions of Pinot varietal flavours.

Lacourte Godbillon Premier Cru

Old name, new generation: part of Champagne's great future

Husband and wife team Richard Désvignes and Géraldine Lacourte represent part of Champagne’s great future; not complacent on selling on the name of the region alone, this upcoming house is earning repute via a commitment to quality and eye-catching flair via contemporary and striking packaging.  The duo took over from Géraldine’s father in 2006, with the family name already well established in Champagne circles.

 

Based in the premier cru village of Ecueil, growing philosophy is to minimal chemical, and a light tractor with tracks to minimize soil compaction.  Yields are far lower than the regional norm, and the wines spend longer on second lees than most domaines’ wines.  Vinous, nervy and complex wines with all stages of growing and production handled by the estate, this estate represents an exciting addition for us as our first Champagne offering.
