ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Founded in 1930 by Pierre and Hélène Coquillette intended to be a more premier label counterpart to their Pierre Coquillette label. No one is quite sure when they first started bottling their own wines, but we do know that they were already showing the Pierre labeled wines at a fair in 1928 in Paris. In 1950 the Saint-Chamant estate was taken over by Pierre & Hélène’s son, Christian. Although the vast majority of their vines are located in Chouilly, the estate itself is based just to the west in Épernay, It is a somewhat unassuming looking estate from the outside but it houses over a mile-long collection of cellars that date back 500+ years.
Farming is all done under organic practices, however the estate does not hold any certifications. All vineyard work and harvest is done by hand.
Work in the cellar is very traditional, fermentations take place in tank as does the aging. Christian was a firm believer in extended lees aging, all of the wines are left on the lees in bottle until they receive a PO for the wines. They are then disgorged to order, something that is particularly unique for any producer in Champagne.
