Domaine Lombard is comprised of 2 hectares within Vin de Pays de la Drome with Syrah and Viognier vines and 7 hectares in Brézème where they grow Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier. They occupy 7 of only 22 total hectares in the Brézème appellation. The estate was established in 1981 by Jean-Marie and Sylvette Lombard. They initiated the revival of Brézème, an appellation with excellent terroir located in the southernmost part of the Northern Rhone. The entire appellation was once decimated by Phyllexora and their revival of this land has been the true work of pioneers. Their wines throughout the vintages, have been recognized by critics and heads of Michelin Star restaurants. In 2011, Julien and Emmanuelle Montagnon took the reins to continue the growth and revitalization of the tiny Brézème appellation, employing biodynamic farming practices along the way. Prior to that they both worked making wine successfully at Camp del Roc in Roussillon and when Jean-Marie decided to retire and sell the winery, they seized the opportunity.
