NV Lacourte-Godbillon Champagne 1er Cru Brut - Terroirs d'Ecueil

Regular price $48.00

In Stock: 0

Géraldine Lacourte and her husband Richard Desvignes took over the 8-hectare family domaine in Écueil (Montagne de Reims) from her parents in 2007. Godbillon is a surname from her mother’s side of the family. They left the cooperative and began bottling under their own name in 2012. In 2017 they began the conversion to organic farming and became certified in 2020. In 2019 they then began the conversion to biodynamic viticulture.

'Terroirs d'Écueil' is 85% pinot noir and 15% chardonnay. 2018 is the base vintage, with 35% reserve wines from the 2017, 2016, and 2015 vintages, all from premier cru vineyards in the village of Écueil. The wine spends a minimum of 28 months on the lees. Dosage is 3.5 g/L. The wine was disgorged in July 2021. The dominant pinot noir makes this wine savory and full-flavored, with a lovely spiciness. It is a classic aperitif Champagne but also excellent with main dishes: hearty seafood, fried anything, or even macaroni and cheese.
