Champagne Bonnaire

Logo-Champagne-BonnaireRegion: Cote des Blancs

Description: The house Bonnaire is installed since 1932 in one of the most beautiful crus of Champagne, the village of Cramant, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. It derives the reputation of its wines from this soil blessed by the gods where the Chardonnay reigns supreme. Out of respect for this beautiful origin, the work of the vineyard has always occupied the spirits and days of the winemakers of the house. Today's challenge is in how to grow grapes and how soils are treated throughout the year. Vineyard management is thus at the center of all our attention, a real starting point for our activity. In the beginning is the vineyard.

Champagne Achille Princier

Champagne Achille Princier

Logo-Champagne-Achille-PrincierRegion: Montagne de Reims

Description: Champagne makers at Achille Princier since 1901, the Mansard family has always had strong values to uphold their reputation, including respect for tradition, family independance and generosity. In this family wine is an art form, from the palnting of the vignes to the commercialistion of Champagne. The making of wine grown from their own plantings is a major strenghth of this "grower champagne".
In 1901 Bennoni Mansard began to make his first bottles of Champagne. In 1926 one of his 4 sons Gaston Mansard took over. 10 years after the second world war his son Michel succeded him with the objective to make high quality Champagne. With the growth in Champagne production he took the decision to enlarge the cellars and the winery and buy more parcels of land in the heart of Epernay.
Today his son Maxime Mansard has taken the decision to launch a premium Champagne- Achille Princier- making a small volume production. It is made from very old vines planted by his ancestors. He selects grapes , for this brand, from parcels first planted in 1930 and perpetuates the traditions of family production. He hopes that you will share his values of quality and authenticity, and his dream.

Description: Canard-Duchêne is unique in its origins, history and style. The Champagne house has been located in Ludes, in the Montagne de Reims National Park, since 1868. Its founders, Victor Canard and Léonie Duchêne, both well-known characters in Champagne, were granted the right by the Russian Imperial Family to adopt its coat of arms as the family emblem.

Champagne Krug

Logo-Champagne-KrugRegion: Montagne de reims

Description: Krug has remained a Champagne House on a human scale, preserving its savoir-faire and defending its unparalleled quality by choosing to offer a limited number of bottles. By overturning conventions and establishing its own rules, Krug divulges all the exuberance and expression of its Champagnes. Making Krug Champagne arises from a long, painstaking and very human process; an art.

Depending on the talents and intuitions of a precious few, Krug’s obsessive approach to details is the key characteristic of its savoir-faire which is based on three principles: - the individual selection of the plots and the careful following of each wine, - the art of blending and the creation of Champagnes by Krug’s Chef de Caves Eric Lebel and the Tasting Committee, and - the essential mastering of time, stretched to an unfashionably slow pace.

Champagne Pol Roger

Logo-Champagne-Pol-RogerRegion: Montagne de reims

Description: In its 160 years of history, Pol Roger has carved out one of the most flattering reputations in the select circle of the leading Champagne brands. For five generations, the descendants have been equally demanding, remaining loyal to the strategy initiated from the very beginning by the firm’s founder. Pol Roger is the gentlemen’s Champagne, as Jean-Paul Kauffman wrote in “Voyage en Champagne”. It is not surprising, therefore, that Winston Churchill and even the British Royal Family should have made it their favourite over the years. The purity and nobility of Pol Roger Champagne is also the fruit of the know-how, passed down from generation to generation. From the harvest in the region’s best vineyards, to the painstaking work in the cellar, each gesture has its importance.

Champagne Mouzon-Leroux

Champagne Mouzon-Leroux

Logo-Champagne-mouzonlerouxRegion: Montagne de reims

Description: Sébastien Mouzon is one of the rising stars of Champagne. His simple goal: to produce the best natural expressions from each individual terroir. Situated in the Grand cru village of Verzy, the Mouzon family possess 100 separate plots spread across 10 hectares of vineyards. All of the estate is biologically certified with biodynamic practices being introduced in 2008.

The Mouzon family have been winegrowers since 1776 and originally supplied grapes to Veuve Clicquot. They first began bottling under the label of Champagne Mouzon in 1930. This was changed to Mouzon Leroux in 1976 with the marriage of Sébastien’s father Philippe to his mother Pascale Leroux who are still an important part of this estate to this day.

Sébastien after completing his degrees in oenology and viticulture, spent a year working in Burgundy giving him greater insights towards the use of oak for fermentation and maturation. He then returned to the family estate in 2002. All wines are produced as ‘naturally’ as possible. The initial fermentation occurs with natural yeasts and then aged further in vats or barrels giving greater depth and complexity to the wines. The wines do not undergo filtration or fining and then spend an extended period on the yeast lees prior to disgorging. The wines are pristine and focussed, with wonderful depth and minerality. Dosage is minimal.  Such great wines are not a product of the cellar but the purest expressions of the vineyards themselves.

Description: For four generations, the Champion family have been proud to share their passion for Champagnes that offer character and prestige to accompany the most memorable moments of your life, just as its founders wished for.

This small family estate is located in the Grand Cru village of Chouilly, in the Côtes des Blancs. The vineyards have a south-south-east exposure giving the wines a mineral delicacy, and lifted floral aromas.

The Champion family have been grape growers since the 18th century, but sold their harvest to négociants. This was all to change in 1929 when André Champion decided to bottle under his own name and the brand ‘Champagne André Champion’ was born. At the tender age of 16, Roland took over the family business and continued to increase the family’s estate. The Champagne house was then renamed ‘Champagne Roland Champion’ in 1951. His son François is the third generation of the family and continues in his father’s footsteps as both oenologist and company manager.
