A Family Winery in the Côte des Blancs
Champagne Chapuy is in the Oger region of the famous Côte des Blancs, with six Grand Crus vineyards. The winery is a family estate of eight hectares of vines. The family has a great history in Oger as their ancestor was the region’s mayor after the French Revolution.
Champagne Chapuy is a Family Winery
Winemaking has been in the family for more than a century, but Serge Chapuy was the first to establish the winery and commercialize their production in 1952. His son, Arnold, took over the family estate in 1981 and was joined by his daughter Elodie in 2003. Currently, the winery is run by the third generation of the family and exclusively by females. Since 2008, the youngest daughter, Aurore, is in charge of the winemaking and maintaining the vineyards.
Most of their Champagnes undergo malolactic fermentation. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, and the secondary fermentation starts around eight months after the harvest in the bottle. They make some of the best Champagnes in the region at affordable prices for their customers worldwide.
