Learn more about the story of this champagne
The story of Champagne CH. de L’AUCHE is also the history of the Maison des Vignerons de Germigny, Janvry, Rosnay, founded in 1961. The adventure began when seven independent winegrowers pooled their resources to buy a Dollat press, still in use today. Their aim was to celebrate the local terroir, just west of Reims, and create a range of Blanc de Noirs champagnes from their vineyards that are mostly planted with Pinot Meunier.
Today sixty winegrowers work 115 hectares spread over 40 vineyards covering 40 different crus, of which five are classified as Premier Cru. The co-operative members remain passionate in their respect for nature, their heritage and sustainably crafted champagne. The cellar master says: “We ‘listen’ to our wines, giving our champagnes the time to reach full maturity in our dark cellars, leaving them to age for longer than required by Appellation regulations, so that we can offer perfectly accomplished, balanced, and generous cuvées.
