ABOUT THIS WINE
The Lemaire family began cultivation of vines in Damery and Cumieres in 1890 and in 1947 Henri and his wife Mariette, created the first Champagnes under the label Henri Lemaire. The house passed from father to son and is now run by Nathalie Lemaire and her husband Pascal Guillenmot. The vines are planted over 6 Hectares and the Cumieres parcels are in the Premier Cru. The vineyards are cultivated under ‘culture raisonnée’ and everything is done by the family from the beginning to the end of the process. The house is situated in Damery where Nathalie and Pascal oversee everything. They are extremely passionate about what they do and put their heart and soul into everything they do for the House. The house next door is Lemaire Fourny, another off-shoot of the Lemaire family married into the Fourny family from the Cotes des Blancs, famous for the Veuve Fourny label. These Champagnes are all excellent, made with great joy and passion.
Light, pale gold colour, plentiful mousse. Powerful aromas with a vinous quality, notes of plums, apricots and biscuits, which give ita morish character. Full bodied butbalanced by a discreet crispness.
