Lancelot Courtois Cramant
Sparking wine. Champagne, France. 100% Chardonnay. New to the Weygandt portfolio this year Champagne Lancelot-Courtois is a family business that goes back several generations. The domaine is small, only four hectares, but those four hectares are all located in grand cru villages and the vines are all forty plus years old. The wines are elegant and balanced, showing nuanced fruit and minerality. This is not a big rich style of champagne, but brighter and more elegant with a fine mousse. It is a Champagne which begs the question when isn’t it a good time for champagne. This cuvee is a blending of terroirs from the villages of Cramant, Avize, Oger, and Chouilly, made with grapes from all but his oldest plots.
