Wine Domain

The Men behind the scenes!

There are two families: Delagarde and Delozanne, with six generations of passionate wine growers; located 7km from each other between Monts de Reims and Vallée de l'Ardre.  They maintain the foundations of our passion for vineyards and wine. So, in the year 2000 we began to take up the familial domain of Derzy and Prin, then, in 2005 we proceeded with operating vineyards situated in Germigny on the Monts de Reims.

Two regions, one source of knowledge

Today our vines spread across five villages to make up 8 hectares of vineyards. Our vine plantings are made up of Pinot Meunier (78%) with fruity and gourmand aromas, of Chardonnay (8.5%) due to its finesse and elegance, and of Pinot Noir (13.5%) to give body and strength. Our soil is mostly clay and limestone, and exposed to the south west.  We are independent wine grower-producers. Our produce is pressed, made into wine and aged in our property in the Vallée de l’Ardre. Being completely committed to quality and continued viticulture (restricting yields, grass cover, spreading bark, limiting treatments…) we do our best to ensure the optimal quality of the harvest, by carrying out maturity samples in the plot.

From the vineyards to the cellars,

Parcel by parcel wine making allows us to enjoy the richness of our two plots of land to the full, and also to sublimate their characters. Winemaking takes place in stainless steel and thermo regulated enamel tanks with the capacity of the winery reaching 1500hl. Our assemblages and personal touch are both traditional and innovative. Our wines thrive between 3 and 7 years in the coolness of our cellars before being marketed mainly in France, in Europe, and also throughout the world as far as Japan. Historically under the label Yves DELOZANNE, the wine we would focus on in our “Collection DELOZANNE”; is found today under the label Champagne V.DELAGARDE that you can sample from us. With a revamped range in 2010, we continue with the elaboration of the great DELOZANNE classics (Brut Tradition, Cuvée Excellence and Blanc de Blancs), at the same time offering new Champagnes (Millésimé 2005, Blanc de Noirs and Brut Rosé).

We maintain the history of our past generations…… still in existence!

Sparklingly yours, Your wine growers, Valérie & Vincent DELAGARDE -DELOZANNE
