In the Galipes from 1744
Thomas and Florent are the ninth generation of winegrowers at Fontaine-Denis and have been working the six-hectare estate, in the heart of the Côte de Sézanne, since 2002.
Its 17 plots form a fascinating mosaic where nature thrives. Low intervention, respect for Mother Nature, patience in the winery and stringent quality standards are, the brothers believe, what it takes to make champagnes with character that truly reflect their terroir.
