Marie Copinet Blanc de Noirs
In the midst of the Marne Valley, in the tiny village of Montgenost, is the estate of Marie Copinet Champagne. Jacques and mum, Brigette have handed the reigns of the estate into her very capable hands, from father to daughter. Along with her husband and cellar master Alexandre, Copinet Champagne is entirely a family affair. With parcels in Montgenost, Villenauxe a Grande, Verpillieres sur Ource, Cuchery and Chantillon sur Marne, complexity is the hallmark of these mineral rich wines.
Marie-Laure and Alexandre, are the steady hands at Marie Copinet Champagne, which is a blend of three harvests, and the result is a wine of sheer excellence. No herbicides or pesticides are used. The estate is certified by Terre Vitis.
