Champagne Grand Cru
Our champagne is the reflection of the terroir it comes from and of the love of the men who patiently created it...
Bouzy, a village in Champagne
Bouzy is a delightful winegrowers' village located on the south slopes of the Mountain of Reims, between Reims and Epernay, the capital of Champagne. It is the cradle of our family estate, and the reputation of the wines grown here goes back to the time of royal courts in France, in particular that of the Sun King, Louis XIV.
The Bouzy terroir has been classified as a Grand Cru since 1895 - a token of its quality. Only 17 of the 320 villages in the Champagne AOC-classed Champagne area have received this distinction.
Échevins de Bouzy
"Les Échevins de Bouzy" is a society of winegrowers of Bouzy created in 1980 by about fifteen of them.
They made it their mission to defend and have the wines of Bouzy recognised.
Jean-Christophe Delavenne has been their chairman since 2014.

Grape varieties and blending
Our champagne is made with two varieties only: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Pinot noir (black grapes) is known for its aromas of red fruit and a clear structure.
Chardonnay (white grapes) gives wines delicate aromas, floral and citrus notes, sometimes minerality.
Skilfully blended by Jean-Louis and Jean-Christophe Delavenne, these two varieties convey the fruitiness and a bouquet quality which we know how to highlight in our production.
Three exceptional terroirs
Ambonnay is another Grand Cru classified terroir.
It is located 2 km east of Bouzy. The main grape variety there is Pinot Noir (black grapes) which combines body, fruit aromas and strength in our wines.
Bouzy and its famous vineyard-covered slopes are part of the Côte des Noirs.
Classified as a Grand Cru since 1895, it enjoys due south exposure, unique in the Champagne region - explaining the grapes' maturity and exceptional quality.
Cramant, south of Epernay, is the flagship of the famous crus on the Côte des Blancs.
Classified as Grand Cru, the wines produced there combine suppleness and finesse, with lighter aromas, synonymous with crispness and elegance.
