In the Sixteenth Century, the Beaufort family has already been producing wine in the Champagne area. As soon as 1900, Marcellin started to market his « still red and white wines » from Bouzy and won several medals to competitions in Epernay (1904) and Paris (1907). In 1929, with his son Herbert, Marcellin began to make Champagne. Nowadays his son Henry and greatsons Hugues and Ludovic produce traditionally about 140 000 bottles of Champagne and Bouzy rouge ( the still red wine ). They cultivate 16.50 ha of vineyards planted with Pinot noir (13 ha) and Chardonnay (3.50 ha). Since 1895, the vineyard of Bouzy has been classified among the 17 « Grands Crus » villages in Champagne ( out of 309 listed villages which benefit from the A.O.C. Champagne ). Recognized for the quality of their soil and the specificity of their climate, these vineyards have exceptional conditions to develop these local grape-varieties. On a thick chalky sediment, the vineyard of Bouzy covers 381 ha planted with Pinot Noire ( 88% ) and with Chardonnay ( 12% ) and is south facing on the Reims Mountain.
