Champagne David Léclapart
While the Léclapart family is well into in its fourth generation of champagne production, David Léclapart’s decision to follow in the family business came relatively late. It was not until his father passed away that he assumed responsibility for the estate, and in 1998 founded his own small domaine. Prior to that he had worked at Léclerc-Briant in Epernay and studied at the agricultural school in Beaujeu. Following his arrival at the family estate, he transitioned almost immediately to biodynamic agricultural methods. And 1999 saw the small volume release of his first three cuvées, drawing the attention of champagne insiders around the world.
Léclapart’s 3 ha vineyard in the Premier Cru village of Trépail is scattered among 22 parcels. The estate’s biodynamic approach has been certified by Ecocert and Demeter from the 2000 vintage onward. David Léclapart believes that biological winegrowing is complicated for Champagne – see www.champagne-characters.com
