Producer Info: Owner Lucien Collard comes from a deep rooted heritage in the
region of Champagne, France. His ancestors have been growing wine in Bouzy
since the 17th century. In 1919, Lucien Collard, the grandfather and namesake of the
current owner, wed Julia Bara, daughter of the established grand cru
champagne-making family Paul Bara. This union gave birth to a true family
tradition of passing the vineyard from father to son with their own wine-growing
legacy. Lucien’s cuvées have been created with an ambition and passion to share
his vision of an exceptional champagne. In the summer of 2022, I had the pleasure
of bringing a group of Bubbles Club members to have lunch Lucien at his
champagne house in Bouzy, and can attest to the fact that his love of champagne is
unparalleled by anyone else I have ever met and his commitment to creating
champagnes of the highest caliber is genuine. His vineyards are certified organic
and all hand harvested, which is not surprising as he truly is a man of integrity in
every area of producing his champagne.
