Lacourte Godbillon Champagne
This is a tiny family-owned estate in the heart of Champagne in the village of Ecueil (situated in Montagne de Reims, between Reims and Epernay). Monsieur Lacourte is a 5th Generation winemaker and has been the driving force and passion behind some of the best Champagne Frogitt & Vonkel has ever had. His cellar is built under the family home and all the bottles are turned by hand twice a day personally. His children now run the farm and we have remained loyal to them and their fabulous Champagnes for well 10 years now.
