The terroir

Our vineyard

48°01’27.4″N 4°21’37.9″E – Our estate is located in Balnot sur Laignes (45 km from Champagne’s historic capital Troyes) and next to Les Riceys, the largest champagne-growing commune and the only one to produce the region’s third AOC (controlled designation of origin), Rosé des Riceys.

Covering 48 hectares, the majority of our vines are planted in an area called Côte des Bars. Limestone soils, interspersed with clayey marls, mainly planted with pinot noir (85%). An exceptional terroir in which the steep and sunny slopes reveal all the power and fruitiness of the grape variety. The rest of the vines is devoted to Chardonnay for its finesse and freshness.

A selected supply

nearly 500,000 bottles per year ! Our work is recognized, our champagne is in demand, we are developing.

Also, to optimize our blends, we supply ourselves with grapes from other winegrowers. Mainly chardonnay from Montgueux, Cramant or Béthon whose soils are favourable to this grape variety.

Every year, 80 winegrowers – partners – entrust us with their grape production.
