The Champagne House is located in the small community of Courtenon on the upper Seine in the department of Aube in the western part of Champagne. The company was founded in 1895 and initially only processed the grapes of other winegrowers. From 1901 on, it added its own winegrowing, but delivered the grapes to other large houses. Since 1929, Champagne has also been marketed under its own name, using only grapes from its own 13 hectares of vineyards. Jean-Pierre Fleury began to work with organic viticulture as early as the early 1970s. Since 1992, the entire area has been cultivated according to the biodynamic rules of the organic association DEMETER. The varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are cultivated. In 1989 the first organic champagne was created with the "Fleur d'Europe".

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
