Maison Lombard was founded in 1925 under the impetus of Robert Andrieu, who developed his estate on his return from the Great War. Philippe Lombard took over in the 60s, and today Thierry Lombard has been at the helm of this independent, family-run Champagne house since 1977. He has breathed new, ultra-quality life into this wine merchant's house, giving it an almost winemaker's vision.
The Lombard family has consistently demonstrated the full extent of its know-how with 5.5 ha of vines, located in the western part of the Montagne de Reims and classified mainly as Premier Cru. The company's vineyards have been converted to organic farming, and will be certified in 2022. Mono crus and plot selections are a priority, and partnerships with winegrowers are on the increase. The aim is to create a champagne for gourmets.
The independent, family-run House is keen to express its values in the making of its wines. Highly-skilled vinification and a rigorous process of parcel selection create cuvées of great purity. The environment plays a key role in the winemaking process: the different grape varieties grow in distinctive soils, and Maison Lombard strives to bring out the best in each of them.
Lombard is one of the few wineries to have all its facilities in the heart of Epernay. Maison Lombard's aim is to share atypical champagnes that are representative of their terroirs.
