Presentation :

Vintners in Champagne since 1991 in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Michelle and Laurent Bénard get involved in 2009 in the organic certification with the brand Champagne Laurent Bénard, symbol of the fulfilment of their personal convictions. Already eager to let their terroir get totally revealed by acting less, this way of culture is matching with their sensibility et allows to offer tasting more and more rich and complex experiences. The vintner work is a constant reassessment which will lead them to open themselves again to other ways and to grow their area in organic farming.

Produced from the chalk soil of the town of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Michelle and Laurent offer mainly vintaged champagnes, with low dosage, no chaptalisation and no sulfite addition.

Visit by appointment, on Monday to Saturday, by phone or email.
