Here You will find Champagne Club & Richard Juhlin's personal presentation of all the producers represented in our database.
Richard Juhlins Producer Rating
Champagne has 19,000 growers, of which 1,981 growers produce their own champagne. There are a total of 5,119 registered producers with houses and cooperatives included, but only 2,347 make their own unique champagne. Despite the fact that the champagne houses only own 12 percent of the vineyards, they together account for 66 percent of the district's total sales. Today there are 299 houses of varying sizes and 67 cooperatives where the village growers have come together to get help with the vinification of their grapes.
THE 5 STAR RATING SYSTEM
The focus in my judgement is primarily on the producer's current portfolio. The first exposed stars thus judge only the wines in question, while the stars in parentheses are an assessment by the producer with the historical backpack baked in. I use a scale from 1 to 5 stars for the very main producers in the area. RJs subjective assessment of the individual wines is based on serious tastings of more than 12,000+ different champagnes and is thus by far the most comprehensive evaluation ever made of champagne.
