Founded in 1923 by a Russian princess who fled Moscow and its revolutionary unrest for Epernay, Louis Barthélémy was acquired in 2002 by Jean-Barthélémy Chancel, the youngest Champagne négociant manipulant of his generation. Located in Aÿ, amidst Champagne’s best known vineyards, the house benefits from rich and diversified grape buying contracts in a large number of crus. Of a viticultural background, Jean strives to obtain the best from Champagne’s diversified terroirs in order to vinify great wines, which in turn will enable us to produce great Champagne. The house has a very distinct and elegant wine style, characterised by a small dosage and a long on lees ageing period.
