How to achieve a perfect vintage? First of all, choose a good Terroir well exposed with an adapted soil. Ensure that the sunlight is good from April to September. Add some rain. Don’t forget the vine grower’s labour who must be rigorous and careful. Finally choose the perfect day to pick the grapes. You will obtain healthy grapes with high level of sugar and aromas well balanced with acidity.

This is what happened this year. This perfect vintage just finished the 10th of September in our vineyard.

The wine making is now beginning and the first wines show all their best for an exceptional Champagne!

The vine is already taking its autumn colours before falling in a long winter sleep. All our mind is now focussed on the end of the year meaning good moments shared with Champagne Marc Houelle’s bubbles.
