The Maison Météyer runs a 14-hectare vineyard in the commune of Trélou-sur-Marne, on the banks of the Marne. We work our plots of land with our families according to the methods of sustainable viticulture (in HVE conversion): we preserve the plants and animals that have made their home in the vineyard. Franck Météyer, from the 5th generation of winegrowers in the family, manages the estate and works the classic Champagne grape varieties: Meunier, which represents more than half of the vineyard, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Some of our vines are more than 70 years old and allow the elaboration of our great vintages with Le Meunier. We offer 10 vintages to lovers of fine Champagne bubbles, from vintage to complex blends, including excellent single grape varieties. All our vintages express the richness of our terroir. It is composed of clay-limestone that weeds us out. The southern exposure of the vineyard is ideal for a good ripening of the grapes. The selective sorting of our grapes and the good maturation of the grapes allow us to produce good vintages in zero dosage for always more fruit!
Our Champagne House was the first independent winery to receive the "Pierre Cheval de l'Embellissement" prize awarded by UNESCO. This distinction is an infinite recognition for the work we do every day in the vineyard. Since 1860, Champagne Météyer Père et Fils has been a harvester-manipulator house that produces top-of-the-range and environmentally friendly vintages. We vinify our juices sustainably and in accordance with the Champagne methods. We are also open to visits and offer you a warm, artistic and cultural welcome. You will be able to visit our family museum where you will discover the different stages of champagne winemaking.
Franck Météyer, a good pupil of his ancestors, perpetuates the ancient wine-making practices that have been passed on to him. To preserve the harvest in the event of spring frost, some vines are pruned in March to delay the beginning of vegetation growth, while respecting the environment, ploughing and weeding are done mechanically. Enamelled steel tanks are used to ensure perfect micro-oxidation of the wine. Franck Météyer is one of the 10% of winegrowers who block malolactic fermentation. This method, which is difficult to control, preserves the natural freshness of the grapes, thus offering a frank attack and length in the mouth. A long natural ageing on slats characterizes Météyer Cuvées by a minimum of 3 years for non-vintage cuvées and up to 12 years for Vintages.
