The Terroir is the essence of champagne
Champagne is produced, harvested and blended exclusively in the French Champagne region, so defined by its specific soil and subsoil.
The Champagne AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contôlée) covers 33,000 hectares planted across 320 villages.
The specific circumstances of each village (soil, subsoil, microclimate, exposure) led to the development, at the beginning of the last century (1911), of a scale of vintages. A percentage between 80 and 100 % was attributed to each of these villages, based on the quality of the grapes produced there.
The 44 villages classified between 90 and 99 % are known as "Premier Cru". Villages classified as 100 % are known as "Grand Cru" - there are only 17 of them - and they produce the finest grapes in the Champagne region.
Our grape is the Chardonnay
with its five Grand Cru villages in a row: Chouilly, Cramant, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil sur Oger.
Avize Grand Cru
The VARNIER-FANNIERE vineyard in Avize was founded in 1860 by my grandfather's grandfather.
It is an honour for me to continue growing grapes in this terroir, after five generations.
