The whole duality of Champagne Jean-Claude MOUZON lies in the duo of Frédérique and Cédric Lahémade, who, from two black and white grape-varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, create champagnes worth their appellation Great Growth Champagne that are environment-friendly.
Champagne Jean-Claude MOUZON is before all guided by a duo, that of Frédérique and Cédric Lahémade. Fan of judo, Cédric discovers Frédérique at the dojo; she was also keen on this martial art. Rivals on the tatami, Frédérique and Cédric fall in love, turning a hand to hand fight into a heart to heart relation. By uniting, their wish to work surrounded by Nature becomes real. They both gradually join Jean-Claude on the estate and will then become the current happy makers of Jean-Claude Mouzon champagnes. Since then, they move forward little by little, together in life and in the vines too.
The name of the village of Champagne Jean-Claude MOUZON, Verzenay, means « to the North ». This Great Growth village of the Champagne area, perched on the Montagne de Reims, looks down the Vallée de la Vesle. The Mountain rising to 277 m of altitude (« Mount Sinaï ») protects the houses of the village and its vines by confining hot air.
Inheriting and running a terroir classified Great Growth implies that you show a daily interest for its quality and turn it into your champagnes. 43 small plots located in the villages of Verzenay, Verzy, Beaumont-sur-Vesle and Mailly-Champagne make up the vineyard of Champagne Jean-Claude MOUZON. Their surface enables them to do everything by themselves: luxury craftsmanship! Cédric and Frédérique watch carefully over their Great Growth grapes. They practice sustainable vine cultivation (environmental-friendly) acknowledged by the Ministry of Agriculture through the logo HVE.
