Champagne: a Land of Effervescence and Authenticity

The vineyards, houses and cellars of Champagne are registered on the UNESCO world heritage list in the category “cultural landscapes”.

Three constituent parts which embody the “terroir” of Champagne and combine the functions of living environment, working environment and a showcase of traditional know-how. They are at the heart of creation of the ultimate reference in effervescent wine making methods.

A product of excellence, Champagne is recognised as the universal symbol of celebration, reconciliation or partying.
