Champagne wines have been known since the 9th century and have become famous since the 18th century after their quality improved thanks to Dom Perignon.

The specificity of the terroir has helped select the most adapted grape varieties.

The 3 grape varieties of Champagne:

Pinot noir, a black grape, is grown on 38% of the area and main variety on the mountain of Reims because of the chalky soil and cooler temperature. Pinot Noir produces structured wines; it also gives them body and pungency.

Pinot Meunier is present on 32% of the area. This sturdy variety is more adapted to clayish  soils like in the Great Marne Valley and can better cope with tougher climatic conditions for the vine. Characterized by its fruity flavour and intense bouquet, it adds suppleness and roundness to the wines.

Chardonnay grows on 30% of the vineyards, mostly on the Côte des Blancs slopes. It offers delicate citrus and floral aromas, and gives great finesse to wine.

The 4 districts of Champagne:

Champagne area wss defined in 1927 by law and covers 34,000 ha in four regions:

- the mountain of Reims;

- the Marne valley;

- the "Cote des Blancs";

- the "Cote des Bar".
