J. L. Vergnon

- Notizen des Weinguts: “For five generation, nearly two centuries, the house that shelters today the Champagne JL Vergnon is owned by our family. It belong before the Maison Reglault frères, retailers in wine and alcohol. During the next century, Jean-Louis inherited from his parents.
In 1950, he recreated his vineyards on the slopes of Côte des Blancs, in le Mesnil sur Oger. First cooperator, he decided few years after to make his own wines, pur chardonnay, with passion for the work from grapes to wine. His motto : make exceptional grapes to make exceptional wines. His hard work will be restrained by the brutal death, in 1977 of his eldest son, Bruno, promised to be his successor.
It’s only in 1985 that he produced his first wines, immediately put under the light and distinguished by a “Coup de Coeur” in 1987 by Wine guide Hachette, for his first Extra-Brut.
Unfortunately disappeared to early, his example is still nowadays our inspiration. Our champagnes, from the domain and vinified in our house of le Mesnil sur Oger, with the care of keeping the tradition alive and to perpetuate his know-how. His wife, Monique and his youngest son, Alain perpetuate this work.
Managing the domain since 1999, Didier Vergnon follow this way with the same passion of well done work. Surrounded by faithful and experienced team, a new generation join the domain to carry this legacy on. Clement, and his partner Charlotte.”
