Maison founded in the 60's in the village of Pierry. It covers 9 hectares of vineyards located in 7 communes of the Marne Valley and the Cote des Blancs: Pierry, Moussy, Epernay, Mardeuil, Dizy, Vertus and Boursault. It is 1965 when Henri Sélèque planted the first vineyards. In 1974, his son Richard, after having graduated in oenology, returned home and started working his grapes, the first vintage of the Maison. Years spent and grow proportionally the investments in vineyards and cellar facilities, until 2008 when Jean-Marc, grandson of founder Henri, after completing agronomy and oenology studies and having traveled all around the world, takes over the winery,supporting its Champagne vision with a very personal style in wine making. A new model that learns from the past to interpret contemporary times. Vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of sustainable agriculture and using several fermentation containers, steel, large wood barrels and barriques. The dosages are always quite low to allow the terroir size to emerge.
