Specificities: A name dear to us, for a rare champagne. It is by seeking the most just balance, the richest expression of each characteristic of each of our grape varieties that we obtain our cuvee Comte de Chenizot, so aromatic champagne and true journey in the mouth. In order to highlight its uniqueness, we have dedicated this name to it “Comte de Chenizot” in honor of a strong personality of the village, we have named a cuvée after him. Until the French revolution, there was a lord called François Vincent Guyot de Chenizot living here: a very wealthy man who was distinguished by royalty many times, as well as by the Republic. When he died, he had no descendants or forebears, and his legacy was passed on according to his will: our village was bequeathed a farm, a donation to build a school and an orphanage. An important part of our vineyard was part of his property.
