The Pinot-Chevauchet family has been present in the village of Moussy for four generations and annually produces about 30,000 bottles, vinifying exclusively the grapes from their own vineyards. These vineyards, divided into 27 parcels on clay-limestone soils, extend over 4 hectares in the communes of Moussy and Pierry, in the heart of the Côteaux Sud d’Epernay in the Vallée de la Marne, also including Premier Cru lands. The manufacturer’s philosophy is based on the continuous pursuit of excellence and respect for the environment. To achieve excellence, they favor long periods of aging in the bottle (at least 5 years) and the use of minimum doses of sulfur dioxide. In the vineyard, they adopt “green” techniques that respect environmental integrity, excluding the use of chemicals in favor of biological practices. The company is proudly certified HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale) and Viticulture Durable en Champagne.
