Wines / France / Marne / Montagne de Reims

The Montagne de Reims, a large massif situated north of the Marne River Valley and south of the capital city of Reims, is famed for its Pinot Noir plantings.  Several of the villages are classified as Grands Crus under Champagne’s complex classification system, the top rating available to any vineyard.  Fruit produced on the northward-facing slopes provides elegance and finesse, while the riper grapes grown on the southerly-facing slopes provide power and character.  The Montagne’s Grands Crus villages include Ambonnay, Beaumont-Sur-Vesle, Bouzy, Louvois, Mailly-Champagne, Puisieulx, Sillery, Verzenay and Verzy.
