Champagne, almost universally regarded as being the world's best loved sparkling wine, has been a hit for centuries. With the combination of its northernly position; its use of (almost exclusively) Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and its second fermentation taking place in bottle, it makes for a truly distinct and unique wine. Made either into Vintage and Non-vintage styles, the former can command astronomical prices as it benefits from extended periods of time aging on the lees - sometime upwards of 10 years). Sweetness levels in the wine vary depending on the dosage added and range from Extra Brut to Doux. The majority of growers will contribute to Negociants' wines (such as for the Grands Marques) but the most distinct are made by the growers themselves.

Champagne Christophe Dechannes is found in the town of Les Riceys in the heart of the Côte de Bar, the largest and the most southernly of the Champagne sub-regions. Their 9 hectares is made up of predominantly Pinot Noir vines (92%), but with a small special 0.5ha of Chardonnay which being so close to Chablis, benefits from the same Kimmeridgian soils. Vine age is between 20 and 60 years old. But make no mistake, they are a small Champagne House, making around just 30,000 bottles a year, across a total of 6 cuvées. Now under the third generation they are committed to working both traditionally and progressively, and are currently in the process of converting to HVE Level 3.
