    Champagne Doyard started to produce its own champagne in 1927 whereas they have been a winegrower family for 12 generations. The domain, that is today run by Yannick Doyard and his son Charles, is located on the best terroir of Côtes des blancs with plots in Vertus, Mesnisl-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant. It owns also 1ha parcel in the best location of Ay where it grows pinot noir. The domain is highly focused on quality keeping the best juice (only 1st press) and selling the remaining to the big champagne brands. Even though not organic certified, viticulture uses no herbicide or pesticide and some principles of biodynamic regime are followed. Finally, Doyard who vinifies its wines in stainless vats and oak barels always leave the time to the wines to age a minimum of 4 years. As a result, Doyard champagnes are some of the best wines of this region.

  • Benoît Déhu

    A single plot and a single grape variety: Meunier. The vinification and aging take place in oak barrels only with minimal intervention. The vineyard is managed with emphasis on respecting nature and following organic and biodynamic principles (conversion was finalized with vintage 2014). Since 2013, we have been using our own barrels, made in Champagne with wood from our Meilleray forest. Several cuvées stem from the same plot: Champagne Cuvée la Rue des Noyers, Coteau Blanc and Coteau Rouge la Rue des Noyers. You will be amazed by the wines’ multifaceted aromas and notes, anchored in the terroir’s characteristic minerality. Because Benoit’s work goes hand in hand with gastronomy, the wines will prove a great match for a precise and complex gastronomic cuisine and can also be appreciated by the glass.

  • Nathalie Falmet

    Nathallie Falmet is one of the rare women being a champagne winegrower and the only one who is oenologist. After helping more than 30 domains in Aube, she took over the family estate in 2000 and decided to release her first champagne in 2009. Her philosophy of grape growing, winemaking and wine aging is the healthiest ever, for the respect of nature, certainly, but also for pure quality and unparalleled wines. She is committed to maintaining low yields and believes quality cannot be achieved without a devout dedication to working the soils.  She picks for ripeness and vinifies her wines separately according to aromatic profiles.  Constant tasting during vinification, sometimes up to three times per day, helps her understand the aromatic and flavor spectrum that her wines span over time.  She seeks balance, power, delicacy and terroir definition in her wines.  She is, in fact, a Chablis drinker after all!  The relative warmth of the region supplies her wines with a natural breadth and depth, coupled with the racy, mineral undertones afforded by the kimmeridgian limestone bands found in the soils throughout the region.

  • Maurice Grumier

    In the heart of the Vallée de la Marne, winegrowers since 1743, the Grumier family has elaborated champagne since 1928. The philosophy of Grumier is quite simple: the greatest wealth is the terroir, which must be respect and keep alive. The viticulture adheres to a spirit of sustainable development, in which every individual plot is managed with the greatest possible care. This spirit can also be found in the cellars where the vinification takes place in oak barrels and small, stainless steel vats to preserve the unique style of each parcel of vines. Note that Fabien Grumier who is today running the domain was elected best young talent of Champagne in 2013.

  • René Geoffroy

    The Geoffroy family have been winemakers since the seventeenth century and the property has stayed in the family for almost 400 years, uninterrupted. In addition to prime parcels in Cumières, the family has holdings in Damery, Hautvillers, and Dizy. They aim for the highest possible quality and ferment the wines in oak. The wines don’t go through malolactic fermentation, which gives them the nerve and aging potential that most Cumières Champagnes lack (because of a warmer micro climat). When you talk to the well-educated Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy, you understand that this is a family that cares passionately about wine.

  • Daniel Chotard

    Daniel and his son Simon farm the slopes of the village Crezancy-en-Sancerre, where flint meets clay and the famous Kimmeridgian limestone. They practice sustainable farming, and uses organic composts to treat the vines. Typically, he harvests his grapes later than his neighbors which results in less of the acidity that is so typical of the appellation. Aging the wine on its lees further rounds the mid-palate. Chotard’s wines are luscious and complex with deep notes and long, satisfying finales.

Nonetheless, Olivier Tropet wines are always balanced with some freshness making his wine more accessible and subtle.

  • Philippe Lancelot

    A very  small estate founded in the mid-1970s by Philippe’s parent who had each inherited some vines around Cramant: in Chouilly, Oiry and Avize, as well as in Epernay and Aÿ. While they reinforce organic practices since 2004, they are using biodynamics since 2011 on all plots. The idea is to get to know and understand as best they can, the DNA of each terroir so they can create, year after year, champagnes that that each have their own identity and that reflect their ideas, their imagination and the character of each vintage. Purity, singularity and elegance are what they value the most. As far as the wine itself is concerned, they have been working with Hervé Justin since 2009 (pope of biodynamy in champagne) and use little, or no, sulphur during the winemaking. Brilliance, sparkle and expression are the themes that they are looking for as well as a natural balance in the wines at disgorging that makes dosage unnecessary. If Philippe had to sum up everything he has learned, he would say: Mother Nature is a masterpiece that I can never hope to surpass!

  • Eric Rodez

    Eric Rodez, who assumed the helm himself in 1984, is the eighth generation in his family to produce champagne. Before working on the family estate, he first gathered experience in Alsace and as a cellar master for Krug. This period laid the cornerstone for the elements that make his champagne exceptional today: an almost unparalleled mastery of the intricacies of assemblage. To really bring out the minerality and almost sensuality, he has also moved into biodynamic production for now 8 years. In addition, he has embraced aromatherapy essential oils in the fight against diseases such as mildew. Eric's aim to be as nature-friendly as possible was recognized by his receipt in 2012 of the Haute ValeurEnvironnmentale (HVE) certificate which covers not just organic farming but also biodiversity and water management on farms.
