Champagne Vilmart & Cie has been run by Laurent Champs the, great, great grandson of the original founder, since 1995. He has instilled a renewed energy into the world renowned, family-run house, leading with both heart and mind.
The house has 11 hectares in Rilly-la-Montagne, planted to 60% chardonnay and 40% pinot noir. This represents an unusual mix given Rilly-la -Montagne, produces mostly pinot noir and Meunier.
Grapes are also grown in the nearby village of Villers-Allerand and both villages are in the centre of the Montagne de Reims region.
