A phoenix from the ashes of war…
In 1944 Louis Dupont, a French resistance fighter and champagne maker, was deported by German forces, sadly to never return. Rather than allow his employer’s vineyard to fall to ruin, Pierre Bertrand, took charge of the vineyard until Monsieur Dupont’s son was of age to succeed his father. At the same time, Pierre began acquiring plots for his own vineyard project. In the 50’s he was able to fully realize his dream by obtaining 200-year-old cellars that were perfect for the ageing of champagne. He was able to build on the same site thus allowing him to have all the necessary space to produce and commercialize his wines.
Of his 9 children, his daughter Thérèse took the reins in 1982 and continued her father’s dedication to producing great wine. She in turn has passed on this passion to her son Bertrand who has been at the helm of the estate since 2010.
Bertrand is committed to a strategy of responsible and eco-friendly farming in the vineyard, along with minimal intervention in winemaking. The press used at the domain is of the highest quality and some oak ageing is employed in the cellar.
