More about this Producer
Later, when the wines of the region started to be sold as champagne, their success was thanks to the quality of those same vineyards, and others like them, which was already well recognised.
Mention of the Duménil family can be found in public records going as far back as the reign of King Louis IV and right up to the present day.
Before the wines of Champagne were famous, at the time when they were known simply as wines from La Montagne, it was the monks who first realized the quality of the vineyards that now belong to Champagne Duménil. The monks came from the prestigious abbey of Saint Rémi in Reims which owned vineyards in the villages of Chigny-Les-Roses, Rilly-La-Montagne and Ludes, all situated in the area known as La Grande Montagne de Reims and all now classified as Premier Cru, where the Duménil family estate had its beginning. As for the monks of the cathedral in Reims, they had vineyards in the nearby village of Sacy in the area known as La Petite Montagne de Reims which is also classified as Premier Cru.
