Champagne Xavier Leconte, a Family Winery

Onésime Leconte acquired his first plots in 1870 at Les Leconte for his viticulture passion. Champagne Xavier Leconte has been passed down from father to son for over six generations. Now, in the fifth generation they continue the tradition as they have the same passion for viticulture and oenology as previous generations. The family crafts exceptional Champagne from their vineyards present in Troissy-Bouquigny, a small town in the Vallée de la Marne region. The vineyard spreads over 40 parcels in Troissy, Dormans, Mareuil-le-Port, Vandières and Aÿ. The winemaker harvests three varieties including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The terroir of Champagne Xavier Leconte is made of a moderate continental climate and soils with lime, clay, and chalk. The parcels are all very different and suitable to grow certain grape varieties of Champagne.

The Modernization of Champagne Xavier Leconte

In 2000, Xavier rebuilt the winery, winepress, and the family cellars. He also involved his son Alexis in the winemaking business. In 2003, Alexis took over and following the old family values and techniques, he produces real “Terroir” wines. After receiving training for years from the family, Alexis gained experience in different Champagne houses and wineries. He earned his National Diploma of Oenology and spent four years working in Bordeaux and Alsace. These experiences helped him come back to lead his family’s Champagne business effectively. At Champagne Xavier Leconte, they vinify some of the grape varieties in barrels and some in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Furthermore, the family vinifies wine from the smaller plots only in oak barrels.
