It was in the village of Ludes that Abel Lepitre established the Champagne House in 1924 that to this day carries his name. Coming from a long line of winemakers, Abel Lepitre skilfully mastered the art and techniques of vinification and champagnisation.
The once larger champagne range has now been fine tuned into four exceptional cuvees; Brut Ideale, Brut Millesime, Brut Rose and the legendary Cuvee 134, each having its own distinct personality.
Grapes: 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir
Region: France / Champagne / Oger, Mailly and Cumieres
Maker: Abel Lepitre
Notes: A fine necklace of tiny bubbles rises gently against the pale, gold background. The scent is elegant and delicate, with notes of honey and subtle hints of almond paste and vanilla follow. A balanced creaminess on the palate confirms the impression given on the nose. The wine is fresh, rounded and of remarkable length. The rich and elegant character is perfectly reflected in this great champagne.
