Champagne Beaumont des Crayères | Epernay, France
In 1955, a group of wine growers from the village of Mardeuil joined forces to set up a champagne house, which was named Beaumont des Crayères after one of the finest hillsides in the village. Three quarters of their 86 hectare estate is located on the hillsides of Épernay with soils rich in chalk.
Mardeuil is widely recognised as one of the best regions for cultivating Pinot Meunier, which is therefore the dominant variety for Beaumont des Crayères with a share of 60% of their vineyards given over to this variety. The remaining 40% is divided with 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir plantings.
Beaumont des Crayères is one of the few champagne houses to enjoy the benefits of self-sufficiency, with their commitment to the production of elegant and refined champagnes resulting in the production of award winning champagnes year after year.
