The Producer

Philippe Lancelot represents the third generation of his Cramant-based family estate, Y. Lancelot-Wanner. The domaine holds vines across the most historical and prestigious Grand Cru communes, including Chouilly, Oiry as well as Avize, Epernay and Aÿ. Upon graduation from oenological school in Avize in 2008, Philippe began to make wines for Y. Lancelot-Wanner as well as his eponymous label. In 2012, Philippe adopted biodynamic practices in all his vineyards to promote auto-immunity in his vines. The domaine received AB Ecocert certification in 2014, Demeter in 2015 and Biodyvin in 2020. Philippe’s commitment to biodynamic viticulture is deep - with the use of 500 and 501 preparations, essential oils and natural plant applications, and adhering to the Maria Thun lunar calendar in the process. Copper sulfate treatment in the soil is minimal or even eliminated, just as sulphites are eschewed in the winemaking. All vines are trained in selection massale to retain their individualities. He also pursues full and unique expressions of the terroir in his cuvées with his creative lens, tapping on his imagination to interpret the identity of each parcel in his ‘parcels et coups de cœur’ (single vineyards and favourites).
