About Guy Charbaut


Third generation Charbaut family, vignerons and producers of fine Champagne, have maintained the unique and distinct character of their Champagne House, creating Champagnes that reflect the focus and passion with which they craft their Champagne.

 

In 1930, Grandfather André planted the first vines in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, a site recognized today as being one of the most sought after and well suited to the production of quality Champagne grapes. With his own cellars and wine presses in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, he was perfectly located just 5km from Epernay, the heart and capital of the Champagne region. Below 25 meters of chalk, lie tunnels measuring approximately 1,5Km in length with a constant temperature of 11˚C, which makes for the perfect environment in which up to three million bottles of Champagne may be matured and aged. 

 

His son Guy established a further ten hectares during the sixties, and following years of grooming and being skilled in the art of Champagne production, he continues to produce these fine Champagne’s now bearing his own name.

 

Guy’s children, Brigitte and Xavier, are today responsible for this prestigious Champagne House, with the entire area under vine now approximately 25 hectares. With a production of more than 200 000 bottles a year, these Champagne’s are exported to England, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, China and Switzerland.
