Champagne Lamoureux - (France)

Champagne Lamoureux logo

Just after the 2nd World War, in 1947, grandfather René Lamoureux planted his first vines in Les Riceys, making him the de facto founder of the house. However, it was his son, Jean-Jacques, who further developed this small winery to the next level. Les Riceys belongs to the least known and most secluded part of Champagne, the Côte de Bar. It is situated between Reims (Epernay) and Bourgogne, below the city of Troyes, far from the touristic heart of Champagne where the famous large houses are located. All the more, however, surprising and interesting discoveries can be made here without support of big branding. They count solely on their pure class. Today, son Vivien manages the winery, where Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier are presented pure and blended, with the same high quality standards for each cuvée. Just about all different types of champagne are represented here and make Champagne Lamoureux an unmissable opportunity for every champagne lover.

About the winery 

Champagne France
picture of Cuvée Réserve
Pale golden yellow color with beautiful fine pearl. Aromas of yellow stone fruit such as mirabelles, apricots and notes of hazelnuts that evolve into more discreet notes of pepper and almond after opening. A touch of brioche gives the whole even more class. Refreshing and generous style that culminates in a long, fine pungent final.

Light yellow color with fine, livly pearl. Mineral tones of flint define the first impression. After some opening, aromas of brioche, butter and grilled almonds unfold. Fine exotic fruit and a hint of grapefruit reveal themselves in the taste. The finish balances between pungent and soft with notes of bread, herbs and liquorice. Great champagne with a clear Blanc de Blancs character.

100% Pinot Noir. Classic méthode champenoise where an ordinary still wine is first made, which afterwards gets its pearl by a second fermentation in the bottle 'Liqueur de Tirage'. After the 'Prise de mousse', the 'remuage' starts in which dead yeast cells sink to the neck of the bottle and are removed. Before the champagne gets its final cork, a 'liqueur d'expédition' is added (in this case 'brut'). which determines the dryness of the champagne.
