For over forty years, vintage after vintage, Patrick Fournaise, oenologist, and his wife Marie-José Dubois have been cultivating their vineyards in order to develop their finest Champagnes.
Thanks to a common passion for wine and working on the land, they were able to transmit their know-how to their son Jerome giving rise to a family tradition. When we met with the family back in 2017, we had a great feeling about importing champagnes from them for three reasons:
With Jerome Fournaise, visiting their exceptional parcels near 'Les Brouillet'
The magnificence of the territory and strength of climate
The family vineyard is situated In Crugny near Reims, in the heart of the Ardre valley and stretches over 9 hectares - 4 hectares of Chardonnay, 4 hectares of Pinot Meunier and 1 hectare of Pinot Noir.
Implanted in “Coteaux”, the vines find a rich fertile earth thanks to a sub-calcareous soil covered with a fine strain of clay. In Champagne, the vines benefit from the oceanic influence and the low temperatures which lead to a slow and moderate maturation of the berries. The juices thus present the fundamental characteristics of champagne wines: finesse and freshness
On this family vineyard it is the nature of the land that guides the selection of the most suitable grape varieties: pinot noir, meunier and chardonnay.
