Vineyard notes: “Situated 150kms east of Paris, the Champagne vineyards cover over 33,000 hectares and yield yearly approximately 320 million bottles of the most prestigious wine in the world. Between the cities of Reims and Châlons-en- Champagne, grapes have been cultivated since the Gallo –Roman period, but it was at the beginning of the 18th century that the blending of the different villages or crus and a method of vinification that permitted the obtainment of effervescent wines began to make them well-known throughout the world. Ever since this time, Champagne wines have been come recognizable not only for their famous bubbles, but also their finesse, vivacity and freshness and their famous thick glass bottles and corks held on by wire muzzles. The first official boundaries were drawn in 1927. The Champagne producing region was divided into 4 zones, the Montagne de Reims, the Marne Valley, la Côte des Blancs and la Côte des Bar in the very south of the appellation.”
