Located in the Marne Valley area of Champagne, France. In 1870 Onésime Leconte began as a champagne grower. Xavier Leconte, now the fifth generation, oversees 10 hectares (24.7 acres). In 2003, Alexis, Xavier’s son, joined the legacy. He preserves the soil and produces real “Terroir” wines. The house relies on 40 small plots spread over several villages in the valley for their wines.
Like his grandfather, also a keen practitioner of natural methods, Alexis follows the phases of the moon, applying techniques based on the cycle of the Earth, increasing sustainability and reducing the carbon footprint.
Alexis follows the house style developed by his predecessors to produce wines of great quality, whilst ensuring he nurtures the land for the generations to come.
