Comment

Oiry... we may sometimes forget that the Côte des Blancs is much more than the Cramant - Mesnil-sur-Oger - Avize trilogy. And some winemakers make sure we're reminded of that, and with a bang.

Needless to say, for us this reminder takes the form of a very specific plot: "Sur les Gros Monts".


After Cramant "Le Gros Mont", Hubert Lancelot has signed the second plot Champagne of his range. A 100% old-vine Chardonnay from a 1942 massal selection. A guarantee of tension and concentration.

The vinification process highlights the authenticity of the fruit and its terroir, using stainless steel tanks and traditional fermentation without malolactic fermentation.

Minerality is fully expressed, supported by a delicate extra brut dosage of 2 g/l. The typicality of Chardonnay expresses itself through citrus and white fruit aromas, to which are added lightly peppery notes.


A pure champagne of pleasure for your finest aperitifs.


We suggest you leave this cuvée out of the fridge for a short time before tasting, it will only reveal its full potential when served at 9-10°!

About champagne Lancelot & sons

Nestled on a hillside, the Avize willage could be considered one of Champagne's countless villages, whereas it is actually so much more. Not only is it an essential terroir for wine lovers, but also one of the 5 legendary villages to be classified Grand Cru in the Côte des Blancs, along with Oger, Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil.

This is where Champagne Lancelot et Fils was established, a family-run business now headed by Hubert Lancelot, a warm-hearted winegrower with a strong personality.


The house's signature?

A perpetual quest for terroir, brilliantly represented by a range honoring plot-based champagnes and ratafia, a traditional sweet liqueur wine from Champagne."This is where Champagne Lancelot et Fils was established, a family-run business now headed by Hubert Lancelot, a warm-hearted winegrower with a strong personality.
