Champagne David Léclapart
A fourth generation Grower Champagne (R.M.) maker from Trépail, David Léclapart has gained a great deal of attention from being one of Champagne’s few Ecocert and Demeter-certified Biodynamic vignerons. David’s 3 hectare vineyard is located in the Premier Cru village of Trépail (SE of Reims) and is scattered across 22 different parcels.
Léclapart uses no reserve wine, instead producing vintage-specific Champagne which appears on each label. All fermentations are spontaneous and wild. To ensure microbial stability in the wines without the use of sulphur dioxide, all wines undergo 100% malolactic fermentation. All wines remain sur lie until shortly before the next vintage’s harvest and are filled without being fined, filtered or cold stabilized. All wines are zero-dosage.
All sold out. Next allocation expected late-2018.
Annual production: 3 ha
