“To be rooted to one’s land, to know it, preserve it
and work daily to encourage living soils”
Our vineyard... 68 plots stretching from the Marne Valley to the Côte des Blancs. Many hold Premier Cru status.
From Fossoy to Vertus, we cultivate, care for and love each terroir. Each has its own character, its own identity, its own singularity.
Cette diversité est notre richesse.
With a firm conviction that wine is made on the vine and being lucky to own some beautiful terroirs, it is our responsibility to realise their full potential. It is also in our interest to protect them.
Through our practices, we encourage life in our soils in order that the vines can produce their best fruit. Our desire is to preserve a natural, living and varied ecosystem.
Ploughing, cover crops, hedge plantation, use of natural compost to encourage microbial activity and maintain biological balance….by these actions, biodiversity is promoted.
The hand is present, but it is nature at work.
In contact with nature, we daily perceive the complexity and fragility of our earth.
In 2014, the domain received the sustainable viticulture certification HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale or High Environmental Value) and subsequently Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne (Viticulture Durable en Champagne, V.D.C). Through concrete actions, environmental certifications and patronage programmes, we seek to have a positive and sustainable impact on our environment.
These actions will be continued and extended. Our aim is not to obtain a ‘label’ but rather to restore the true sense of what it is to be a winegrower.
