Our vineyard is located on the sunny hillsides of the municipalities of Cuisles, Marfaux, Jonquery and Chatillon-sur-Marne.
For more diversity, we grow the three grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and mainly Meunier. This is the assembly of these three varieties which is giving the typicality of Champagne.
The grape variety “Meunier” gives the character and the specifity to the Champagne wines of the Marne Valley. It is really typical from the Marne Valley. This name of “Meunier” (miller) comes from his branches with white extremities comparable to flour.
The AOC Champagne (controlled designation of origin)
The Champagne region is defined by a controlled designation of origin (AOC), delineated since 1927. It includes 34.000 hectares.
The Champagne terroir is characterized by his geographic location and his specific climate, which create the grapes typicality, the freshness and the finesse desired for Champagne.
Located at the northern limit of the vine culture, Champagne region has a rigorous climate for vines. Furthermore, the double climate influence, oceanic and continental, induced frosts sometimes heavy and destructives in winter, and a limited sunshine but some pretty hot summers. The grape takes all its aromas thanks to a slow maturation.
Another significant characteristic of Champagne region is its limestone basement. Chalk helps to drain the ground, and create a water reserve on the basement, which is ideal for plants and enable the grapes maturation. The terroir of Cuisles possess a typicality: there is, on the basement, green clays which are staying damp, even in dry period.
Our vines insolation is mostly southeast.
This factors combination unique in the world gives to Champagne its characteristics, its extraordinary finesse which is making its reputation.
