Many champagne producers bought cognac spirit from Charles Lafitte & Cie, to use in their liqueurs d’expédition, the sweetened reserve wine added to champagne in the dosage process.
In 1983, Paul-François Vranken initiated a second great revolution by founding the Charles Lafitte champagne brand.
The company produces elegant, nicely balanced champagnes. The traditional blend, predominantly Chardonnay, helped further the firm’s success. It makes lively, cheerful, constant champagnes that flatter any palate.
