  • Doyard

    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.

  • Lancelot-Pienne

    Representing the fourth generation, Gilles Lancelot is a trained oenologist, who farms a fairly modest eight hectares, half of which are in Cramant itself, the other half in the Vallée de la Marne, the latter an excellent source for Pinot Meunier, which pays a key role in the Cuvée Tradition. The house philosophy, apart from the somewhat inevitable borrowing from Arthurian legend in the naming of its wines, favors relatively late picking, low dosage and several interesting innovations, such as the use of a Solera in its wines. Whilst, somewhat unsurprisingly, there is a focus on Grand Cru and high quality Chardonnay in the range, Pinot Noir is far from forgotten, making up half the blend in the Cuvée Perceval, which underlines both the skill and the versatility of this exemplary house.

  • 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.

  • G. Descombes

    Since he took other the estate in the 80's, Georges Descombes immediately started shifting viticulture and oenological practices forward. Since then, he has been practicing organic viticulture and eliminating all entrants or manipulating during vinification (no sulfur added). With his own style, he is considered to  produced same quality of wine as winegrower like Lapierre or Foillard. This is one of the top expression of Gamay grapes with an elegant and very pure style.

  • Domaine Faury

    The family estate is located in Chavanay in the Northern area of Rhône just south of Condrieu. The domain taken over in 1979 is run by Lionel Faury since 2006. He produces some of the most famous French wines like Côtes-Rotie, Condrieu and St Joseph as well as countryside wines. The parcels are mostly located on the steep side hills of the Rhône. The vines are grown on the terraced slopes and the Faurys’ vines take full advantage of the southern and southeastern sun exposure, benefitting from optimum ripening. The style of wines produced by Faury is very precise, with mild tannins and good maturity while the wood is not dominant.

  • Les Entrefaux

    Although the Tardy family has been growing grapes for generations, they only began to estate-bottle in 1979.  The Marsanne grows on the historic hillsides of Mercurol, an appellation that was once as highly sought after (and costly) as Montrachet. The Syrah vineyards are on the pebbly limestone terrace of Les Chassis, thought to be among the best sectors within Crozes-Hermitage. The vines average 30 years of age and yields are kept at a modest 40 hectoliters/hectare.  The family has been practicing organic farming for a number of years and earned organic certification in 2012. The grapes are hand harvested, 100% de-stemmed, and fermented with natural yeasts.

  • Mas Isabelle

    Isabelle Boulaire is the 12th generation of winegrower from Lirac, but while his father was selling the grapes to the cooperative, she decided to keep the grapes from the best parcels to produce her own cuvee. The Mas Isabelle is then born in 2009. Isabelle is taking great care of the vines that for many are more than 100 years old. The selection is very careful, manual, with very low yield. The vinification is traditional and very natural to give wines that are powerful while being very elegant. The touch of a women.

  • Pique-Basse

    Domaine Pique Basse is located in Roaix, where Olivier Tropet, talented enologist, has being making wonderful wines since 2007, following a long family tradition.  Roaix village is few kilometers down the road from Rasteau and the wines are similar: big,  full-bodied wines based largely on grenache. Nonetheless, Olivier Tropet wines are always balanced with some freshness making his wine more accessible and subtle. Farming here is ecologically friendly: neither herbicides nor insecticides are used and the wines are made with minimal intervention.

  • B. Bachelet

    Bertrand took over the domain from his father Jean-Paul in 2011. The domain was well known but Bertrand is now taking it to a higher level. His first cuvées are an expression of his talent and for sure he will contribute to make  the Marange appellation (created in 1989) more well known. Marange is often compared to Pommard as it produced well bodied wines but it does not have the prestige of the name. His Pinots have a wonderful freshness and juiciness, and get more complex and deep as you progress up the ladder. The whites are pure and lively without heaviness or excessive oak. For someone so new to the business there is a real confidence to his winemaking and it has resulted in some delicious, great value reds and whites.
