    Alexandre Lamblot is part of a new generation of natural-leaning vignerons making waves in Champagne. He farms 3.5 Ha of vines scattered across Vrigny, Chenay, Janvry and Gueux which are a combination of vines he inherited from his family and some that he rents and farms himself.
    The resulting Champagnes are reminiscent of the brooding power and intensity of Cedric Bouchard with the voodoo Meunier complexity and magic of Jérome Prévost.Complex and bright, Mouvance is a blend of Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from old vnes plots in the villages of Vrigny and Chenay. The term “Mouvance” translates to “movement” and refers to the dependence of one phenomenon on another. From endless efforts in the vineyards to meticulous details in the cellar, Alexandre Lamblot is in constant motion and this wine is emblematic of the spirit of a domaine that is going places.

    In The Cellar
    To increase biodiversity, he minimizes tilling (using only light, mini tractors when he scratches the soils), allows indigenous plants to grow, sends chickens in the vines to feed and fertilize, and he embraces Vitoforestry, planting around 100 different species of trees in each hectare.His attention to detail is carried into the cellar where each press is vinified on its own and ferments with indigenous yeasts in a mix of 228 to 600-liter barrels, mostly used. Lamblot bottles the wines at around 11 months without fining, filtration or cold stabilization. SO2 levels are kept relatively low, around 15-20 mg total at bottling.

    In The Vineyard
    Lamblot’s family has been growing grapes and making wine in this area since the 1600’s. In fact, the Lamblot family still produces Champagne under its own label, but starting in the mid 2010s, Alexander Lamblot started a small, ambitious project of his own, releasing his first wines in 2019 under the label Champagne A. Lamblot. Lamblot farms 3.5 Ha of vines scattered across Vrigny, Chenay, Janvry and Gueux which are a combination of vines he inherited from his family and some that he rents and farms himself. The vineyards are fairly densely planted averaging around 9,800 plants per hectare, all with massale selection plantings. The estate is made up of approximately 60% Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay. While he is officially certified organic as of the 2021 vintage, Alexandre feels that the prescribed regimen for certification is a really only a “good start”, and his work in the vineyards goes well beyond in terms of his practices and his desire to deliver efficacy with the least amount of impact on the environment.
