CHAMPAGNE ERIC TAILLET / Baslieux-sous-Châtillon
The Taillet family has always grown vines. However, champagne-making started a little later. The vines were maintained to produce beautiful, healthy quality grapes. It was Daniel Taillet who put the first bottles on the market, in 1961.
House Taillet was born. History was made and continues, as Eric Taillet succeeded his father in 1995. He cultivates his vines with respect and carefully maintains them so they yield exceptional harvests.
Today, his greatest reward comes from sharing his passion with his two children.
CHAMPAGNE DIDIER-DUCOS / Saint Martin d'Ablois
Champagne Didier-Ducos was born in 1946, following the wedding of Yvonne Ducos and Adrien Didier. Two names, one identity.
Later on, their son Christophe, with his wife Dominique, worked together and made the domain prosper. Today it is their grand-son Nicolas and his wife Clotilde who have taken over and prepare the future, by combining ancestral know-how and modernity.
Champagne House Didier-Ducos is very attached to their status as winegrower ("récoltant-manipulant"), which guarantees that the wines are elaborated with the house's grapes on their own premises.
CHAMPAGNE DEMIÈRE / Fleury la Rivière
Champagne Demière is proud be an independent, family-run House, which has been contributing to the renown and diversity of champagne wines for three generations.
The House is located on the terroir of Fleury-la-rivière, on the right bank of the Vallée de la Marne, right in the historical heart of the Champagne region. Their vines include the three champagne grapes: 50% Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay.
Champagne de terroir Demière is elaborated through careful and sustainable growing methods. Its style is fresh and vivacious, with beautiful palettes of aromas. Thirst-quenching, it can ideally be served before a meal, and can also be associated with culinary art.
Champagne Demière is full-bodied and its notes linger in the mouth. Its unusual profile has led to its renown and it has won multiple awards. It brings pleasure to champagne connoisseurs... and to us too!
CHAMPAGNE ROGER BARNIER / Villevernard
Roger Barnier is descended from 5 generation of grape-growers, but he was the first to elaborate his own cuvées and to become an independent wine-grower ("récoltant-manipulant"). Today, it is his grandson, Frédéric Berthelot, who perpetuates the family tradition. The House owns about 8 hectares of vines, over 35 plots, located in several villages in Champagne. Some of the vines are almost a century old.
Champagne Roger Barnier's unique and rare wines rely on sustainable vine-growing, respectful of the land and the terroirs; hand-picked grapes, pressed in the traditional steps; vinification by plot in small vats and barrels.
The yield is controlled, and the truth lies in the terroir, which dominates the grapes. Only the cuvées are part of the blending. These are the values at the heart of Champagne Roger Barnier's work as an independent, non-conformist and free wine-grower, with one single objective: quality.
CHAMPAGNE André Heucq / Cuisles
Third generation grower, today it is André who manages the 5.5-hectare domain located in Cuisles, in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne, assisted by his children.
The domain is certified organic since December 2017, and biodynamic practices are also respected. André seeks first and foremost to give the quality an expression of his terroir in harmony with nature. He uses the native grape, Meunier, grown predominantly on green clay.
Thanks to a highly performant and ecological winery, the vinification allows André to obtain a champagne requiring reduced levels of dosage, very little added sulfur, and yielding a great expression of pureness in his wines.
CHAMPAGNE SERVEAUX FILS / Passy sur Marne
Champagne Serveaux is located in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne, in Passy sur Marne, a truly typical village surrounded by vine-covered hillsides. The Serveaux family are passionate about the natural wealth of their terroir of 15 hectares. They grow all three champagne grapes: Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The family Serveaux is a true pioneer of Meunier. They seek to promote this grape, which used to be looked down upon.
The family Serveaux truly love their land, and they know each of their plots down to the finest details.
All year round, as seasons go by, in all kinds of weather, they nurture each vine. From the first bud to the final harvest at the end of the summer, they give vines all the care that will yield the best grapes for pressing, while entirely respecting the environment.
CHAMPAGNE FRANCIS ORBAN / Leuvrigny
This beautiful champagne love story began four generations ago, in 1929. Francis Orban's great-grandfather, Léopold Orban, a pioneer of champagne in his village, decided to dedicate himself to the production of this wine. His son Gaëtan Orban and grandson Pol Orban followed in his footsteps. A champagne dynasty was born.
The vineyard lies in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne, where champagne was born, ten miles from Epernay, the capital of champagne.
The village is unusual in several respects, enjoying ideal exposure and sunshine, exceptional clay-limestone soil and a perfect microclimate to grow Meunier, the vineyard’s flagship grape variety.
Today, the desire to please endures. You will find in the Francis Orban Champagne range a natural elegance, an authentic and true know-how, passed down through the Orban family and specific to their terroir.
With great respect for the environment, Champagne Francis Orban is certified « HVE » (High Environmental Value) since 2018.
CHAMPAGNE R-C LEMAIRE / Villers-sous-Châtillon
The history of the Lemaire family started towards the end of the 19th century in Hautvillers, the birth place of champagne. A family tradition was born. Monsieur Désiré Lemaire, a gardener and poet, bought the first plots of land that were to become the domain of the House Roger-Constant Lemaire.
His grandson, Roger-Constant, understood how essential it is to blend the grapes based on their origin in order to create quality champagne. In 1945, he doubled the size of the domain and moved the centre of operations to Villers-sous-Chatillon.
Brigitte Lemaire, Roger-Constant's daughter, married Gilles Tournant, who turned out to be a very talented wine-maker. Together with their children Sébastien and Guillaume, they perpetuate the family tradition. They believe in producing exceptional champagne, through the use of rare, outstanding and environment-friendly vinification methods, with great respect for the environment, the domain R-C Lemaire is certified « HVE » (High Environmental Value) since 2018.
