Paleo Erik's notes Of the more than 300 wine-producing villages in Champagne, only 17 are categorised as “grand cru” (“great/best growth”) and 44 are listed under the marginally-less-extraordinary “premier cru” (“first growth”) label. Light, fresh and fruity, here's an easygoing Champagne yet with enough zip to leave a mouthwatering impression. A good aperitif. Drink now. Our price: 3,983 baht (guaranteed lowest retail price in Thailand) Others Price: 5,960 baht Sommelier's Comments Rogers Voss - 93 points "A blend of wine from four Côte des Blancs villages, this is crisp, very dry in the Lombard style while also smooth from the short wood aging. Mineral and tangy, it is a bottling (disgorgement January 2016) that could age a bit longer. Drink from 2017. " Isac James Baker - 92 points "Deep yellow color. So bright on the nose, with daisies, honeysuckle and orange blossom, with lots of chalks and sea salt, limestone dust, on top of lemon curd and apples. On the palate, pristine acidity, a bracing and dry appeal, with lots of up-front minerals, chalk and limestone dusty, mountain streams. Bright lemons and limes and green apples mix with complex ginger, sea salt, floral perfume and freshly-baked biscuits. Lots of depth but so lively. A blend of Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly, Avize, and Cramant, this was disgorged in June 2017" Wine Profile No sugar added, 100% Chardonnay, and bottled at the Grand Cru Lombard Chateaux. About the wine maker Lombard & Cie founded in 1925 and is situated in Epernay the capital of Champagne. All the grapes come from selected areas of the highest quality due to their area and soil and exposure. The house sources grapes from more than 100 hectares of vineyards, farmed by growers throughout the various Champagne regions. They get Chardonnay from Grand Crus Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly, Avize and Cramant, along with various Premier Cru villages, while the Pinot Noir is sourced largely from the east of the Montagne de Reims. The Grand Cru wines are aged at least 48-60 months before being disgorged, the Premier Cru a bit less. The house can trace its roots back to Robert Andrieu (grandfather of the current owner), who founded the Société Anonyme de Magenta-Epernay in 1925. Phillipe Lombard took over in 1960 and expanded the winery and cellars in Epernay in 1987. The company is now run by Thierry Lombard.
