La Parcelle is run by the married couple Stéphanie Chevreux and Julien Bournazel. Their main job is a vineyard management company that cultivates over 370 hectares of vineyards throughout Champagne for a variety of producers of various sizes. They are specialized in organic and biodynamic viticulture and are advocates of high quality vineyard work.

With the money they had saved in about 20 years, they were able to buy a 0.4 hectare plot of land with old Pinot Meunier vines on a steep slope in Barzy-sur-Marne in the western Marne Valley in 2012. They knew this vineyard well because they had worked it for the past 15 years.

So in 2012 Champagne La Parcelle was born: a vineyard, a grape variety with an annual production of less than 1,000 bottles!

Everything in the cellar follows the biodynamic principles and fermentation is spontaneous with indigenious yeasts. This is followed by aging in oak barrels for almost a year; there is no filtration or clarification. The champagnes are dosed little or not at all, the dosage consists of biodynamic grape juice. Use of sulfur is minimized.

After the first steps, they have now acquired a hectare of Pinot Meunier in the nearby village of Connigis and have thus been able to almost double production.

We are very excited to see how this incredibly exciting project will continue in the coming years!
