What to expect


If you enjoy champagne with character, charm and vibrant fruit, consider getting a bottle of this for your next dinner-party-conversation-starter. 

“Undeniably delicious and expressive chardonnay fruits with ripe lemon, peach, mango and nectarine aromas and flavours. Some gentle savoury edges arrive on the palate. Vibrant and expressive.” JamesSuckling.com  

This cuvée is where winemaker David begins his range. He blends five different parcels of chardonnay from the Premier Cru village of Trepail to make this wine. He ferments using wild or indigenous yeasts and all of his wines are farmed Biodynamically. Despite being Zero dosage or 'Brut Nature' this has plenty of flavour and texture to keep you coming back for more.

About the house


Food pairing suggestion

The village of Trépail is unusual in the Montagne de Reims in that it is planted almost entirely with Chardonnay. Since establishing his 3ha domaine in 1998, David Léclapart has been making the finest contemporary examples of this terroir. Léclapart is one of Champagne's most vocal advocates of biodynamic farming, having been certified biodynamic since 2000, and with an approach in the cellar governed by the same principles. Apart from L'Amateur, the rest of his cuvées are wholly or partially fermented in second-hand barrels purchased from Domaine Leflaive in Burgundy. All of his Champagnes are released without dosage, and all are typically low in sulphur. These are highly individual Champagnes, marked by a striking purity and elegance, as well as a racy tension and savoury complexity derived from Trépail’s chalky soils. Decanter Online

Food pairing suggestion


The first choices that pop into our minds is some fried chicken or fish with lemon sauce. Crispy whitebait with some pommes frites might also be a delicious pairing.
