2011: Extension of our cellars

The quality of a champagne is linked to numerous factors. In order to successfully make a great wine, it is vital to improve its production tools, this is why we have decided to enlarge our cellars in 2011.

An important decision which meets several requirements:

The need to have more space, as keeping bottles on their lees in the cellars, in order to mature and strengthen the style of our Premiers Crus, requires more than three years of storage capacity.
The vinification process for each plot is a very difficult and demanding choice to elaborate and various cuvées and their own profiles; in order to achieve this result, we need large numbers of small containers to separate and store the mosaics of our numerous plots which are then passionately elaborated.
All the wine-making operations are essential, it is therefore important to gather our specific equipment in one single location.
Our pressing centre is a little distant from our current vat-rooms.
These various reasons have led us to our decision to build our new wood and stone cellars in 2011. These noble materials will be the jewel case of our champagnes. The story continues…
