The result of our Houses creative imagination, the O.R. 1735 cuvee, combines all the savoir faire of Champagne through the selection of terroirs, and the expression of Chardonnay grown in the best Grand Crus, slowly aged in our cellars under natural cork.
A wine for connoisseurs, to be enjoyed as an aperitif or at any time of the day.
Deep gold colour, and a good long lasting mousse with very small bubbles. The initial nose reveals aromas of plums and eau-de-vie fruits, then developing into chocolate notes. The mouth has moka and chocolate notes with a hint of dried fruits such as hazelnut and walnut. Good length, rich and fresh.
Our history starts with Henry Lhopital. Visionary and intuitive, as a vine grower, he decides to produce his Champagne sold under his own name. But time is rough and Champagne is not as popular as it is nowadays. Sales are limited.
His son André gives a real impulse to the family business. Thanks to his know-how, he grows his vineyard by acquiring different plots in the best crus of the region. The Champagne House J. De Telmont is born.
Serge Lhopital, third generation, gives a new impulse to the production and commercialization of his Champagne; sales take off! The wines of Champagne are more and more enjoyed around the world. Year after year, harvest after harvest, our House gains in credibility and awareness. During that time, our House is moved from the centre of the village to our current location, 1 Avenue de Champagne in Damery. The fourth generation The fourth generation is composed of Bertrand and Pascale, brother and sister. A new story is written, enriched thanks to their complementarity. Continuity of the House, transmission of our know-how and values, the choice of our methods of production respecting the environment: biodynamics. These are challenges that our family is willing to take over, always with the same enthusiasm.
Years of work in the vineyard and in the cellars, many hours dedicated to our bottles…A lot of time. All this time allows us to rank us among the 20 greatest Champagne Houses.
