Champagne Vignon Father and Son

Stéphane Vignon is like an alien in a region that produces champagnes that are the exact opposite of his range!

This family-run house, located in Verzenay, produces rare champagnes, vinified only in parcels, all in Grand Cru, dosed in extra brut and vintage.
The wines of the house are quite simply authentic: mostly worked in barrels, with natural yeasts, without fining or filtration, and chaptalization, if nature allows it, is not sought after.

The Vignon house is a straightforward, terroir-based champagne for all lovers of gastronomy!

The winemaker behind Vignon champagnes

The Vignon family has been established in Champagne for several centuries, but winegrowing only became a family affair in the last century. Indeed, it was in 1946 that the very first Vignon champagnes were marketed.

Stéphane Vignon, the third generation of family winegrowers, has been at the head of this estate north of the Montagne de Reims since 2001. From the start, he has been committed to an approach to preserving the environment, which is at the heart of heart of his concerns. For more than 20 years now, he has been practicing intelligent viticulture based on his daily experience in the vineyards. No question of labeling here, but the vines are nonetheless cultivated organically: 3 additions of fertilizer in 20 years, no more insecticide for 15 years, grassy plots since its beginnings and tillage partially carried out by horse.

Stéphane Vignon is also committed to the defence of French gastronomic know-how. A member of the Disciples d'Escoffier International, he is also a member of the Académie Nationale de Cuisine, the Toques Françaises and is a partner of Euro-Toques Österrich, whose fundamental values are sharing and transmission.

The identity of Vignon champagne

Passion drives this family business. Passion for wine, but also respect for an exceptional terroir and rigour in the daily tasks, guaranteeing the unique identity and style of Vignon champagne.

The wines of the house are truly unique, made by plot, all in Grand Cru, dosed in extra brut, vintage and with as little intervention as possible. The champagnes are mostly made in barrels (the wood of which comes from the family forests), with natural yeasts, without fining or filtration, and chaptalization, if nature allows it, is not sought after.

Authentic champagnes are the result, whose profiles are dictated only by nature and the wine itself, to the delight of our palate!
