This is a 14 hectare family estate in Le Mesnil sur Ogier dating back to the 1900s. A wide use of Oak for fermentation gives complexity and richness while the blocking of malo helps retain the crispness of a great Champagne. Their rosé is a saignée method made from Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is a lovely deep colour and full of flavour. The 2 whites are 100% chardonnay aged for 4-5 years for the Jardins and 6-8 years for the Terre de Mesnil and both are Grand Cru.

Champagne Germar-Breton| Côte des Bars
Easy drinking Champagne made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Côte des Bars
- Blanc de Noirs
- Blanc de Blancs
This family have been cultivating the vineyards of Aube since the 50s. In 1989 Laurent Breton, youngest among his brothers, together with his wife Karine Breton decided launch their own winemaking activity in the Côte des Bars area near the village of Colombé-la-Fosse. In 2005, eager to develop their own Champagne, they decided to launch “Champagne Germar Breton”, produced and elaborated by Laurent Breton himself. The domaine is named after their daughters, Gersande and Marcelline Breton.
Their Champagnes are produced from a blend of Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay. The 7.5ha of vineyards lie overs 4 villages of Côte des Bars where the soil is particularly generous and the sunshine is ideal for viticulture. The wines all go through malo prior to bottling so the style is fairly easy-drinking with 8g/l dosage.
This is a young estate with a bright future ahead of them!
Champagne Lété Vautrain| Marne Valley
Fine and long grower Champagne.
The estate was created in the 60's in Château-Thierry, by Robert Lété and Liliane Vautrain, his wife. They combined their surnames to create its brand. Their daughter, Michèle, and their son, Frédéric, developed the company afterwards.
In 2011, the estate was taken over by another Champagne family, the Baron-Fuenté Family, a family with long-standing winemaking knowhow in the Marne Valley. Our eight-hectare vineyard stretches across the town of Château-Thierry and the neighbouring village of Essômes-sur-Marne.
As a producer and wine-maker (Récoltant Manipulant), we grow the eight hectares of vineyards by ourselves. They are located on limestone slopes that benefit from excellent sun exposure. Harvesting is done with the greatest care using traditional methods.
Lété-Vautrain champagnes are expressive, round and balanced sparkling wines that delight the taste buds.
