Our vineyard is composed of a mosaic of 40 parcels, spread over the slopes of 7 villages on the right bank of the Marne valley. Our vines are cultivated in a sustainable way, with grass or ploughing depending on the location of the plots.
Our manually picked grapes are pressed in our pneumatic press and vinified in our vat room composed of stainless steel vats and small oak barrels. Our champagnes rest for several years in our cellars before being marketed.
The history of our estate began around 1950 with my grandfather who started an activity as a wine nurseryman (grafting vine plants), in order to plant our own land, but also the sale of vine plants to other winegrowers. Then my father took over and extended the vineyard to several villages in the Marne valley, and at the turn of the 2000s, we took over part of the family vineyards and created our own Olivier and Laëtitia Marteaux brand in 2009.
For us, the profession of winegrower was an obvious one. For me Olivier, vines and wine have been part of my daily life since I was a child. As a child, I accompanied my parents and grandparents to the vineyards, later I studied at the Avize Wine School, as well as internships in several wine estates.
For Laëtitia, the vine is also a family affair, her grandparents were winegrowers, and when she was younger she would help them in the vineyards during the holidays. We manage our vineyard according to a sustainable cultivation method that respects and preserves our environment as well as possible. "We don't inherit the land from our parents, we just borrow it from our children, that's why we protect it."
