Aÿ’s winemaking history dates back almost 1,700 years to the Roman era. In the 16th century, Henry IV,”His Majesty of Aÿ and good wine’‘, created the reputation of still white wines from Aÿ throughout his kingdom. Around two hundred years later, the invention of blending, and the control of secondary fermentation in bottle gave birth to champagne. A sparkling wine bottled and closed back then with a wooden cork and hemp. But many bottles leaked or broke under intern pressure… With improvement of corking and bottling technics we now export our champagnes all over the world.

In 2004, Francis Tribaut takes over and gives birth to Champagne Georges LACOMBE.

Champagne Georges LACOMBE is fortunate enough today to source from 80 hectares of vineyard including in the grand crus and premier crus areas.

Georges LACOMBE champagnes are wines of pleasure: Rich, elegant, complex and fruit-driven.
