“This is one of the top estates in the Côte des Blancs today.” –Peter Liem, Champagneguide.net.
Run by Didier Vergnon and son Clement (4th and 5th generation respectively) and founded in 1950, this Domaine is one of the finest in the Côte des Blancs.
With predominantly grand cru sites and a good portion within the infamous ‘Les Chetillons’ vineyard and surrounds, JL Vergnon produces intensely powerful and taunt Blanc de Blancs.
It was Didier’s father who believed that mature, clean and ripe fruit was the key to fine Champagne. It enabled them to chaptilize less and use less dosage. They also found it helped translate the terroir of the incredibly white soils of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the wine.
