This family-owned house has been managed by none other since its inception in 1808. You won’t find unconventional style experimentation here as tradition lies at the core of the brand. That doesn’t mean to say the winemakers do not adapt to each harvest like any other house, but they have a particular style and method which they do not deviate from.

Fruit Sourced from

33 hectares of estate-owned vineyards from Cotes des Blancs villages, Avenay-Val-d’Or, Verzy and Verzenay. A further 100 hectares of sourced grapes makes up the annual production.
