Our tradition as winegrowers dates back to 1703, when our ancestors worked the vines in the nearby village of Chamery. There is a document that suggests a much older ancestry, a "vine measurement" dated 1533, drawn up by Pierre Maillart, a sworn surveyor in Chamery, on behalf of the Abbey of Saint Nicaise.

Today, the 9th generation is at the helm with Nicolas, who after his studies as an engineer and oenologist, returned in 2003. He thus perpetuates almost 300 years of history and preserves the philosophy of the house: expressing the potential of the Champagne terroirs in the wines. Since 2009, we have been making a little more commitment to respecting the environment by building 600 m² of photovoltaic panels, which represent a production equivalent to 100% of our consumption. Our carbon footprint has been significantly reduced.

The vineyard is based solely on the Montagne de Reims (Ecueil, Bouzy, Villers-allerand) on premier and grands crus. Established for many years in the vineyard, our ancestors have known how to preserve and select the best terroirs. In addition, the vines are quite old, planted mainly in mid-slope, ideal for producing great wines. True to the typicality of the region, the vineyard contains a high proportion of Pinot Noir (65%) supplemented by Chardonnay, Meunier and Petit Meslier.

The Works of Wine: In the vat room, we are particularly vigilant in the early hours of the wine's life. The wine is regularly followed by a tasting and we then adapt our interventions. Vinification and aging are done either in vats or in barrels depending on the origin of the grapes. Our reserve wines are also partially aged in barrels in order to give them greater complexity. When it comes to blending, we have a very wide variety of wines, which allows us to produce consistent quality Champagnes while allowing ourselves to separate very original and particularly expressive wines.

Once bottled, the magic of the bubbles appears and thus the Champagne is born!! However, our work is not finished: a long conservation in the cellar will allow a better expression of our wines. Then we carry out the disgorging, keep the Champagnes again for a few months in the cellar and finally we can dress them in their finery.

Vine Culture: A strong principle guides our choices in the vineyard: respect for balance. Balance is indeed the only way to obtain optimum grape quality. From pruning to harvesting, we carry out as many tasks as possible by hand, which guarantees us adaptation to each vine. We only use organic fertilizers and work the soil with ploughing, which also allows us to improve the plant's environment and therefore its balance. All these methods are also the best guarantees for sustainable viticulture, respectful of the environment. An approach that is dear to our Domaine.

Having long been committed to an environmental approach, we are now labeled HVE (High Environmental Value) level 3 and sustainable viticulture, distinctions recognizing our ecological and economic performance. These labels take into account criteria such as biodiversity, phytosanitary strategy, water management, etc. (more information on http://agriculture.gouv.fr/la-certification-environnementale-des-exploitations-comment-ca-marche )

We are thus one of the first Champagne estates to obtain this double label.
