Champagne Saint-Reol Grand Cru
In the heart of Ambonnay in 1962, 58 audacious wine producers came together and founded the Saint-Réol Champagnes. Today, their values are shared by more than 230 passionate wine producers. These dignified heirs from a tradition of prestigious families perpetuate with great skill an inestimable and precious expertise, with an intense desire to create the best, the excellence.
They make Saint-Réol Champagne a Grand Cru hymn, to the quality and grapes from the best soils in Champagne.
SAINT RÉOL Champagne is among the rare brands of Champagne to be entirely commercialized as Champagne classified GRAND CRU. This designation of origin (appellation d'origine contrôlée) has only been awarded to 17 out of 324 Champagne wine producing villages.
The SAINT-RÉOL Champagne wine vats are in cellars located in the heart of Champagne where over 2.3 million bottles age at more than 20 meters below the ground.
The talent EXPERTISE
Having high quality grapes is not enough to make exceptional Champagne. Mr. Cédric Jacopin (the head of Saint-Reol) is the guardian of the house's secrets and he inspects, observes and respects the equipment in order to craft strong, gourmet flavours. He turns Saint-Reol vats into gems.
This long work of patience, waiting, and attention is spread out over the years, but in the end the vignerons bring sensitivity, a beautiful freshness and a delicious softness to the Saint-Reol aromatic range. By combining innovative technologies to the traditional expertise, Saint-Reol is able to guarantee this richness of flavohrs that marvelously characterise the Saint-Reol Champagnes.
