Details of wine

Pinot Noir is dominant, with a complement of Chardonnay that brings freshness to the blend. The high percentage of reserve wines (30 to 40%), aged in barrels, confers a high regularity and style to this Brut Platine. Only "Grand" and premier crus are used in this wine, with origins in the Montagne de Reims, on vineyards managed by us.

Our family association with vine-growing can be traced back to 1753, when our ancestors grew vines in the neighbouring village of Chamery; although there is a document that suggests the tradition goes back even further, referring to a “measure of vines” in 1533 that was mapped out by Pierre Maillart, a sworn surveyor working in Chamery for Saint Nicaise abbey. It is now the turn of the ninth generation to take the reins, in the form of Nicolas, who returned in 2003 after completing his studies in engineering and oenology. He is thus perpetuating an almost three hundred year-old tradition and maintains our house philosophy of bringing out the full potential of the Champagne terroirs in our wines. Since 2009, we commit ourselves to a little more respect for the environment by building 130 square meters of photovoltaic panels, which represent a production equivalent to 90% of our consumption. Our carbon footprint is greatly reduced.
