The Champagne area stretches over just about 34,000 hectares.
Located 150 kilometers east from Paris, France, the highly parceled out Champagne region offers 319 vintages.
The vineyard is situated in one of the most northern wine-growing region. The weather is particularly harsh, as the average annual temperature does not exceed 10° C.
The subsoil plays a key role in the quality of the wines in Champagne with its patchwork of micro-soils and, in the most interesting areas, a chalky and calcareous parent rock, essential to the delicacy of a great wine.
Chalk in the Champagne area mainly comes from the Mesozoic era and is characterized by the presence of fossil belemnites.
The winegrowers therefore have to cultivate their lands with great care so that all nuances of Champagne wines fully stand out.
