The house Alfred Gratien has been producing champagne since 1864. Rigorous selection of grapes, traditional winemaking methods, voluntarily limited output and respect for the land - these principles and the fact that it is one of the last few remaining "hand-crafted" champagne producers in the world are the secret behind the outstanding quality of Alfred Gratien champagne and the factors which make it unique.
The cuvées are created by blending the best crus from the three main regions (Côte des Blancs for the Chardonnay, Montagne de Reims for the Pinot Noir and the Marne Valley for the Pinot Meunier). The first fermentation takes place entirely in small 225 litre oak casks (barrique) and gives the champagne a vinous, flavoursome, balanced style. Alfred Gratien is one of the last remaining wine-makers to maintain this tradition. He also have made a conscious decision not to use malolactic fermentation in the production of the champagne. This is in order to ensure that it maintains its original character. The aroma of the grapes and the land from which they came are thus preserved, and the wine retains its freshness, even as it ages.
