Like much of the Champagne area, the estate comprises a veritable patchwork of vineyard plots, 42 in all, spread across the villages of Mareuil-le-Port, Oeuilly and Troissy. The diversity of sun exposure, subsoil, varieties and age of vines give, as a result, many varied nuances to his base wines. Jérôme affirms that this is the best area for Pinot Meunier, as he continues his endeavours to exploit its true potential. This sizable domaine is registered as an NM (négociant-manipulant), but in fact buys in no grapes. Around half of the crop is sold off to the négoce trade each year as pressed juice. The vineyards are tended as organically as possible, including work to aerate the soil and limit the superficial root system, in order to drive the roots of the vines deeper. The rows are grassed over in order to provide
competition to the vines roots.
