The word Champagne derives from Latin `campania`, or open countryside. However the exception is the area south of the city of Reims, where a group of low hills and valleys provide a unique micro climate, enabling the vine to grow on deep chalk soils.
The vineyards of Champagne are planted in three distinct areas. The `Montagne de Reims` is predominately planted with Pinot Noir, the backbone to the Champagne blend, whilst Chardonnay is ideally suited to the chalky slopes of the `Cote de Blancs` south of the town of Epernay. Pinot Meunier dominates the `Vallee de la Marne`, an area susceptible to frosts, which it is more able to withstand, due to later budding.
The secret of Champagne is in the blend, where wines from different grape varieties and vineyards are blended to achieve the `house style`.
Lombard & Cie House of Champagne was founded in 1925 and is situated in Epernay the capital of Champagne. The Lombard family owned vineyards in the early part of the last century in Hautvillers and has now located their vines mainly in Montagne de Reims West. All the grapes come from selected areas of the highest quality due to their area and soil and exposure.
Created in the cellars of the Epernay house of Lombard, this beautiful pale salmon pink Champagne exhibits an elegance and freshness from a traditional Chardonnay Pinot blend with the careful addition of 10% red Champagne. Floral aromas are followed by summer fruits with complex cherry flavours provided by the Pinot Noir.
