The Liébart and Régnier families are country people through and through, having been working the land for seven generations.
Maison Liébart-Régnier was established by Lucien Liébart and Georgette Régnier in 1960. Right from the start they have been independent winegrowers and the current generations - Laurent, Valérie and their daughters Alexandra and Marion – are proud to make the family estate’s Champagnes today.
The family owns 11 ha of vineyards in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne, all handed down by their predecessors. They span both banks of the Marne in the communes of Vauciennes (Left Bank, the stronghold of the Liébart family) and Baslieux sous Châtillon (Right Bank, land inherited from the Régnier family).
The family operates on a philosophy that they are simply borrowing the land from future generations so it is their duty to respect and protect it. Several years ago they adopted an eco-friendly approach as a way of showing the land and their customers the respect they deserve.
The philosophy they apply to cultivating the wines continues in the winery. With the facilities to vinify individual parcels (by surface area) in thermoregulation vats and oak casks, working with an independent wine advisor to make our champagnes and using the traditional methods and as few additives as possible they are able to create fantastic blends from their specific parcels, as well as outstanding single varietal bottlings.
Pinot Meunier from a select 1.16 hectare plot of Liébart-Régnier's vines that are planted. The vineyard is southeast facing and the base vintage is 2017.
A wine with full intensity of its welldefined aromas. Golden yellow with brown hues. The nose opens with confit fruit and cinnamon and apple compote before developing acidic fruit then stony notes. The attack is fresh and rich becoming dense and elegant with a powerful fizz. Sustained by a tension, the butter and honey flavours bring with them notes of tobacco, cacao bean and meringue.
With zero dosage, this is dry and ideal at the table or as an apartif for you and your guests. With dry Brut Nature Champagne, we recommend not over chilling the bottle as the aromas are vibrant with just a slight chill.
