Today, Champagne Lombard is proudly managed by the fourth generation of the Lombard family, represented by Thomas Lombard, who gave a renewal approach of the House by bringing his vision of terroir-champagne. With their own vineyard covering over 6 hectares and an additional 55 hectares in partnership with winegrowers, their winemaking domain extends across a significant expanse. Lombard’s vineyards encompass some of Champagne’s most esteemed cru. In pursuit of champagnes that truly reflect their terroir, they decide to focus on meticulous selection. The choice of grape varieties for harvesting is fundamental to their production methods.

At Champagne Lombard, craftsmanship is held in the highest regard. Each bottle is meticulously handcrafted, showcasing unwavering attention to detail. From grape to glass, the winemaking process is an intricate art, demanding expertise and precision at every step.

Working primarily with Premier Cru and Grand Cru terroirs, the winery focuses on crafting exceptional Champagnes. They offer two distinct ranges: the Signature range, which comprises blends sourced from various terroirs, and the Terroir range, featuring single-village and single-plot vintages. Emphasizing their commitment to quality, the winery exclusively vinifies Champagnes with low and no dosage, specifically extra brut and brut nature. Notably, the Terroir range showcases their expertise in zero dosage Champagnes, highlighting their skill in creating wines of exceptional purity and expression.

Utilizing traditional methods, including meticulous hand-harvesting and gentle pressing techniques, the winery ensures the extraction of the purest juice from the grapes. The fermentation process takes place either in stainless steel tanks or oak barrels, tailored to each specific champagne produced. Following this, the champagnes undergo an extensive aging period in the cellars. With a minimum aging duration of 3 years for Extra Brut and 4 years for Brut Nature, the champagnes are given ample time to develop their distinctive character and complexity. Finally, the champagnes are disgorged, completing the meticulous process that yields exceptional expressions of taste and quality.
