The Champagne GRATIOT DELUGNY House is located in Crouttes sur Marne on the Marne Valley. Wine-Grower (Récoltant-Manipulant) from father to son, GRATIOT-DELUGNY vinifies, sparkles and commercializes its own Champagnes. Jules Gratiot's personality and Louise Delugny's heritage, both coming from Champagne families, allowed to found in 1889 the Gratiot-Delugny House, which is located in Crouttes sur Marne, the property grew bigger through several generations in the Marne Valley. Emile Gratiot succeeded as Récoltant-Manipulant (wine-grower), then Robert Gratiot, born in 1949, today hands down tradition and know-how to his son David, born in 1979, who followed wine-growing studies. The vineyard now covers 3 villages: Crouttes sur Marne, Nanteuil-sur-Marne and Charly sur Marne. In 2013, almost 10 hectares of vines grow on clayey and chalky soils. According to the villages the sunshine is consequently different. The three main grape varieties of the "Champagne" designation are: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, very present on our territory. They are divided on plots called localities (lieux-dits), which allow a different ripeness. Chardonnay is present on about 3 hectares of our wine growing property. It brings fineness and elegance to the wine. Pinot Meunier with about 50% of the vineyard, on an area of about 4 hectares, brings fruity and aromatic characteristics, with a winy touch. Pinot Noir for a quarter land on about 2 hectares, confers on wine a strong and powerful structure.
