Champagne Bauchet winery: from father to son
Champagne Bauchet is a family business passed on from father to son since 1920, located in the small Champagne village of Bisseuil. Four generations of the family have been cultivating and harvesting vines with great care and passion on their 34 hectares estate. Felicien started the work in 1920, which was followed by his sons, Roland, Raphael, and Gerard, who took great risks to build the estate as one of the largest in the Champagne region. Everything from grapes to the winemaking process is carried out entirely at the winery.
The winery guarantees a consistent quality
Their vineyards are spread in 7 different terroirs, including the Cote des Blancs, Cote des Bar, and Montagne de Reims. The main grape varieties that grow here are the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The size of the family winery makes it possible to develop large quantities in a wide range of Champagne wines (6 cuvées) and to guarantee a consistent quality that is worthy of the great Champagne houses.
Professional Modern Touches with a Hint of Tradition
Bruno Charlemagne preserves the wine-grower’s knowhow while making use of the wealth of its terroir, so as to develop in a most professional and modern manner, but still with traditional methods, authentic and elegant Champagnes. Two modern, 8000 Kg presses are used to press the grapes and collect the special juice, Cuvee. The fermentation of wines takes place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. After this, depending on the champagne, they are allowed to mature from 2 to 8 years in the underground wine cellar. Guests and visitors are always welcome at the estate for an excellent time and wine tasting.
