Champagne Xavier Leconte has its origins in 1870, when Onésime Leconte brought to the family the idea of viticulture. In 1980, although his parents were not yet retired, Xavier Leconte, now the fifth generation, carried on the tradition for passion for viticulture and oenology by starting a career as an independent winegrower. Full of ambition, the young winemaker then set about a phase of soil analysis, increased the acreage of vineyard and added Chardonnay grapes to the existing mix of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

In 2000, Xavier rebuilt the winery and wine-press alongside the family cellars. The farm then reached 10.02 hectares of vineyards and continued developing its facilities whilst anticipating the final goal – the creation of fine wines.

Since 2003, with his own experience, Alexis became the guarantor of the house’s style and is involved at all levels. Keeping in mind the values ​​of the House, he preserves the soil and produces real “Terroir” wines. He encourages the vines to plunge their roots deep into the subsoil so as to obtain expressive wines – true reflections of the Leconte vineyard. At the heart of his vines, he can already foresee the future bubbles of his champagnes.

At Champagne Xavier Leconte, 25% of the different grape varieties are vinified in barrels and 75% in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats however the wine from the smaller plots are vinified only in oak barrels.

As such, with its forty barrels from Burgundy, the House is able to develop very subtle champagnes, whilst still being complex and harmonious thanks to the cellar barrels, casks, and stainless steel vats.
