Our Estate vineyard, of just over 19 hectares, is located primarily in the area of the "Côte des Blancs" and more specifically in the villages of Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Cramant and Avize. These great terroirs (soils), located a few miles south of Epernay lay on a chalky outcrop which is a real water tank. The hillside vines are oriented to the east which protects them against the westerly winds. Aware of our precious vineyards, we use sustainable farming methods with the aim to produce the finest grapes while respecting our land, the environment and nature.
This is the name of our special vintage which refers to a beautiful "lieu-dit", a place found in the Grand Cru village of le Mesnil sur Oger. We own three plots of old vines (aged over 45 years), acquired in 1930. Each parcel is vinified separately and blended to produce a single vineyard vintage. All the power and the minerality of the Mesnil's calcareous soil is expressed in this wine produced since 1971. Its reputation has surpassed our borders and even Michael Edwards himself describes Les Chétillons as "one of the most beautiful pieces of land of Champagne."
