Marc Chauvet vineyards
The House Marc Chauvet exploits 6 hectares of vineyards located in Rilly la Montagne within the department of the Marne and 7 hectares in Mont Saint Père in the Aisne.
Mostly exposed south, the vines are planted In a very deep layer of chalk soil covered by a thin layer of arable soil. This chalk sub-soil insures good drainage whilst maintaining sufficient hydration for the vines year round. The chalk also has a great ability to stock solar heat which is then restituted in a regular and constant fashion ensuring effective grape maturity.
This is the magic ingredient of a septentrional vine growing region having an ideal composition for the 3 main grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay.
