(10) Aube

Located in the heart of the vineyard of the Côte des Bar in the Aube, the Guenin Family has flourished for 11 generations in the village of Essoyes (1648).

Today, Champagne Guenin covers 17 hectares, 92% of which is Pinot Noir, 7% Chardonnay and a few Pinot Blanc ares.

The vineyard plots are mainly on hillsides, thus benefiting from a beautiful exposure to the sun. The clay-limestone soils allow Pinot Noir to express all its finesse and aromatic complexity in the wines.

Our story

The first vine plantations date back to 1952 to Sébastien's great-grandfather, Paul Guenin, who planted 1 ha of vines. His grandfather Michel Guenin, then his father Philippe, developed the estate and installed a first press in 1987.

Sébastien represents the 11th generation of the family. After long studies in Beaune and several trips to the great vineyards of France, his experiences have confirmed his passion and desire to develop his own champagne brand. Thus, in 2015, he decided to create his first vintage in order to bottle the passion and know-how passed on from generation to generation through his roots.

Other little stories

Champagne Guenin is located in the commune of Essoyes in the Aube and this village is not only known for its Champagne but also because it is home to the studio of one of the most famous painters in the world, Auguste Renoir. Indeed, the hilly wine-growing landscapes of the commune and its inhabitants inspired his most famous paintings such as "Le déjeuner des canotiers" and "Les baigneuses". Thus, the art, the talent to paint and create a champagne cuvée may not be so far away....
