RC Lemaire Champagne
About the Champagne:
The quality of the products starts from the beginning :
- strict selection of the grapes when harvested (hand picking).
- no malo-lactic fermentation allowing an increase of quality of the champagne as it will retain its natural acidity.
- ageing of the harvests in oak barrels.
- sensible and even growing respecting the environment.
- use of organic methods coupled with the use of algae for fertilisation.
- Since 2001, Roger-Constant Lemaire champagne is dedicated to a policy of respecting the environment and is no longer using pesticides (as the other champagnes), but is using more ecological methods to prevent insect presence and proliferation.
- low sugar level (all of our production get between 6g and 8g sugar/liter only).
The wines clientele is mainly private and thoroughly enjoys the quality of our products.
Champagnes are all between 4 & 6 years old, whereas most other champagnes on sale are only 18 months. RC LeMaire are part of a small number of winegrowers who do not use the malo-lactic fermentation allowing the wine to keep its natural acidity and therefore following a more ecological specification. By doing so the champagnes deliver a refreshing and fruity finish when enjoyed.
