The Champagne Veuve Olivier et Fils estate has been located since 1922 in Trélou-sur-Marne in the Marne Valley. The estate holds the status of "Vigneron-Manipulant" and this status has been perpetuated over the years. The vintages are made in the estate's cellars using grapes harvested on the same estate. Thanks to all this care, Veuve Olivier et Fils Champagne is particularly elegant.
Pinot Meunier is the main grape variety present, there is also Chardonnay and Pinot Noir which are used to make subtle blends. The estate now has 21 parcels spread over 18 hectares. In order to transcribe each plot and give it importance, the estate practices plot winemaking. Thus each plot is vinified individually in order to be able to fully express the flavours of each of the terroirs. Reasoned vine growing is practiced throughout the farm.
In this region there is a specific Champagne Quality Charter, this charter is respected throughout the champagne production process and therefore the care given to the vine is very important in the work of the winegrower. The pressing is slow and progressive, it is carried out using a traditional Coquard press. However, this ancestral technique is coupled with highly technological tools to provide more precision.
Then the juices are blended. Champagne is the only region where blending between different vintages is possible, so the reserve wines and new wines from each plot are blended. This is
how each year at the tasting, the taste of the Domaine Veuve Olivier et Fils is so marked and pleasing!
In 1922, the Champagne Veuve Olivier et Fils estate was created by great-grandfather Edmond in Trélou-sur-Marne. It is his daughter Lilane who develops the activity supported by her son Pierre. They decided to name their brand "Veuve Olivier et Fils" in 1955
, and the estate gradually grew and now covers 18 hectares, the current operator is Sandrine Charpentier-Olivier. She grew up in a Champagne vineyard and is very much surrounded by her parents Michelle and Pierre who taught her a lot. Today,
it has a competent team and production methods that combine the best of the old and the best of the new, this alliance between tradition and modernity is a real strength!
You can find at the estate:
Le Champagne Secret de Cave which is mainly made from Pinot Meunier but also from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it is made from 2011 and 2010 juices and has aged for a long time in the cellar. Flowery and fresh aromas, a lot of complexity and power for this iconic Champagne.
The Brut Perle de Lumière is made with a majority of Chardonnay and the same quantity of Pinot Noir and Meunier. Juices from 2012 and 2011 have been blended for an elegant result around the dry fruit.
