Lemaire winery: where Champagne production started in 19th century

The Champagne Roger-Constant Lemaire Winery is located within the Marne department of France, where at the end of the 19th century, the gardener and poet Désiré Lemaire in Hautvilliers began the family tradition of viticulture by purchasing what is now the Lemaire vineyards.

Later in 1945, Roger Constant Lemaire expanded his grandfather’s vision (quite literally too since he also doubled the size of the winery) and located the family home to the mesmerising Villers-sous-Châtillon where the headquarter is currently situated.

A family of talented winemakers

The tradition of making champagne has been exclusive to the historic Champagne region of north-east France, of which Marne is a part. The Lemaire family of talented and environmentally conscious winemakers keep with this tradition and produce the most exceptional and rich wines. Without the use of chemical fertilising and pesticides, the family uses marine algae to protect their vines. They are also among the small number of winemakers who are no longer using the malolactic fermentation method, thereby preserving the natural acidity of the wine.

The harvesting is done by hands and no forced filtration method is employed

Following the philosophy of respect and balance for nature

The family’s strict adherence to the balance between tradition and respect for nature complements the sunny surrounding environment of Villers-sous-Châtillon. From across the 12 hectares of the winery, the family cultivates various grapes such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier, and produces a range of delicious blends of rosé and sparkling wines. All champagnes are aged between 4 and 6 years, vintage in oak barrels and non-vintage in stainless steel. And every sip is a testament to the Lemaire family’s care and craft, for their champagnes are truly like no other.
