On the heights of Montigny-sous-Châtillon, in the Marne, Faustine and Marc Konrat give birth to gastronomic champagnes of a great precision, on a 7 hectares vineyard. The terroir is silico-limestone and clay-limestone, the best for producing wonderful champagnes with very distinctive characteristics.
Marc Konrat is a harvester from a family of winegrowers. His grandfather already worked these Champagne vines which had remained dormant for 50 years. Grapes are sourced and vinified from the very best family plots such as Le clos des menues raies, La pierre Saint-Philippe, La haie Benoît, or even Le Grain de sel. These vineyards offer grapes characterized by a perfect balance between aromatic power and persistent minerality.
Passionate and experienced winegrower, concerned with preserving the land and the environment, Marc benefits from the certification « Haute Valeur Environnementale » (High Environmental Value) and is on the way to be certified « Organic farming » in the forthcoming years. Grapes are partially vinified in cellar which is composed of 50% oak barrels from the Tonnellerie de Champagne, 40% of stainless steel vats, 10% terracotta amphorae and some Dame Jeanne. Reserve wines are vinified using the solera method.
Every step in the making process is undertaken according to the moon calendar, followed by a long raising period in cellar in order to offer an unprecedented tasting experience. The sole purpose of this qualitative selection is to produce a great Champagne wine.
Lovers of great champagnes, curious, connoisseurs or hedonists, don’t wait and discover the passion of an artisan of haute-couture champagne.
