A champagne expressing its terroir of origin with authenticity
Founded over 120 years ago, the Lancelot Pienne Champagne House has been producing, from generation to generation, vintages that authentically express the richness and refinement of the Champagne terroir. With a wealth of experience in different houses, Jean-Baptiste Lancelot, a passionate winegrower, decided at the end of the Second World War to produce his own wines. A few years later, one of his sons married Brigitte Pienne and the house of Lancelot Pienne was born. Carrying out a perpetual quest for authenticity and excellence, Lancelot Pienne is a family-run, independent house that is renowned for the precision and richness of its champagnes, which are regarded as "vins d'auteur".
Historically established in the heart of the Champagne region, near Cramant, Lancelot Pienne reigns over an 8.30-hectare vineyard that spreads over the terroirs of the Côte des Blancs and the Marne Valley.
Lancelot Pienne's Accord Majeur comes from vineyards located on the hillsides to the south of Epernay. The vines are 50 years old on average and are planted on clay-limestone soils.
