In our champagne cellar
Behind the Label
Our Champagne houses have been making world-renowned luxury champagnes since the 18th century. To distinguish it from sparkling wine and to earn the prestigious title of champagne, winemakers must use specified grapes grown in France’s verdant, UNESCO-listed region of the same name.
Using chardonnay, pinot noir and meunier varietals, the maisons’ winemakers follow the méthode champenoise, a unique set of rules for production that includes a second fermentation in the bottle and a long maturation period to create the bubbles and champagne’s inimitable taste.
