Champagne Lecomte Père Et Fils, Started in 1859
Champagne Lecomte Père et Fils was started in 1859 by Gaston Lecomte, and he marketed many bottles that were produced. His son Sage along with his wife Suzy, took over the winery in the 60s and expanded the Champagne business by selling all their production. Serge’s son, Dosythee Lecomte, and his wife, Ghislaine, joined the family wine estate in 1992, and since then, their sales have doubled because of the expansion of production. Now, their sons, Jeremy and Frederic, take part in the activities of the winery, right from work in the vineyards to the sale of Champagne. The family business has a very rich history, and tradition and knowledge have continued from one generation to the next.
Certified Organic Winery
The Champagne region extends over 34000 hectares and represents around 4% of the French vineyards. Champagne Lecomte Père et Fils’ vines mainly grow in the prestigious Vinay terroir located in Epernay’s Coteaux Sud and in the Marne Valley and Tardenois. The soil here consists of clay, marl, and sand and also retains water in the dry summers. All the work in the vineyards is done with sustainable controlled methods. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides are used minimally that allows the grapes to retain their natural fruity taste. The grape varietals that grow here include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. Only the best grapes go into the production of their top-quality champagnes. Since 2019, Champagne Lecomte Père et Fils also has the HVE certification in light of its organic and sustainable methods.
