Champagne’s terroir, our creative designer

For thousands of years, chalk has tempered this earth, helped the winegrowers to work with serenity, and nurtured the legend.

In its pure state, chalk has an almost sensory quality. This type of soft limestone leaves its influence. Chalk will temper any extreme weather, creating calmer conditions for the winegrower.

Minerality, power, aromatic finesse… the grapes draw their identity from these age-old seams of chalk. Texture and salinity are the characteristic features of this soil, formed from ancient marine sediments.

A veritable reservoir of water and heat, it gives nobility to the grapes, raising them to greater heights so that they may be transformed, after many long years, into this exceptional champagne.
