A UNIQUE VINEYARD
Our domain is set in the heart of the Champagne region and lies a few miles from Epernay, the capital of Champagne. The village of Venteuil clings to the sunny and sometimes sheer slopes of the Marne Valley – the vineyard is south-facing. A wide array of different ‘crus’ allows us to produce a full and varied range to suit every moment for enjoying champagne: Our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varieties take root in Venteuil’s limestone soil. We exclusively grow Pinot Meunier at the Reuil, Dormans and Nesle le Repons vineyards, and Festigny is divided between Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir.
