We’ve just received this clip from the harvest at Marie Copinet in Cuchery.
THE STORY Champagne Marie Copinet is the culmination of the work of several generations of vignerons and, quite literally, has its roots in the remarkable soil of Champagne. As the years went by each generation cleared the land and consolidated the family vineyard holdings. Back in 1956 Alexandre’s grandparents inherited some vines and they set out on this adventure by creating their own brand in the village of Cuchery.
THE VINEYARDS The average age of the vines in Marie Copinet’s 9 hectares of vineyard is 30 years and they are ideally distributed across 3 different areas of Champagne : le Sézannais, la Côte des Bar and la Vallée de la Marne. In each area one finds all three of the Champagne grape varietals (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier).
The diversity of all these areas and of all the different plots of vines is reflected in the rich variety of cuvées which all express the essential character of the various terroirs.
