It is in 1864, when Alfred Gratien establishes the House under his own name. Today, Nicolas Jaeger, our cellar master, continues to remain faithful to the philosophy of the founder: a strict selection of grapes coming from the best vineyards, Champagne processing in small oak barrels, a maximum voluntary limitation volume of 300.000 bottles a year and respect for the soil.

Every year, our cellar master guarantuees to acquire the best harvests of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. The cloistering during 6 months in our small 228 liter oak barrels, guarantees the preservation of fruity aromas and authenticity. Furthermore, the Champagnes are assembled by our cellar master. All our Vintage Champagnes are aged in the bottle with the natural cork, allowing the development of tertiary aromas, a matchless complexity.

It is because of all this care, and not only the fact that it is one of the last "haute-couture" Champagnes, that are the quality signatures of this House and make the Alfred Gratien Champagnes so unique.

Was a lovely tour, wonderful to see the cellars and try some vintage champagne! Highly recommended with good sized samples. The champagne is wonderfully complex as it's been aged in oak barrels definitely a tour to do.
C'était une belle visite, merveilleux de voir les caves et d'essayer du champagne vintage! Fortement recommandé avec des échantillons de bonne taille. Le champagne est merveilleusement complexe car il a été élevé en fûts de chêne, ce qui en fait une visite à faire.
