Champagne Bernard Lonclas

Bassuet, France

Established in 1976 by Bernard Lonclas, Champagne Bernard Lonclas has become a revered name in the Champagne region of France. Nestled in the picturesque village of Bassuet, surrounded by slopes with fertile soil ideal for growing Chardonnay grapes, Maison Lonclas represents a harmonious blend of passion for the land and dedication to winemaking.
