Champagne G.H. Martel & C° was founded in 1869 by the Tabourin family, a wine grower and wine maker from Avenay Val d’Or, a small village a few miles from Epernay.

In 1910, H.L. Tabourin began with the development of the G.H. Martel & C° trademark, which he had bought in the early 20’s.

In 1979, the death of André, the son of H.L. Tabourin posed the difficult problem of succession.

Champagne Ernest Rapeneau, founded in 1901, acquired a majority of the shareholding in G.H. Martel with the aim to use G.H. Martel & C° as the spearhead for its activities in the Champagne region of France. After 50 years of intense activities, Ernest Rapeneau retired from the business, he handed over the direction to his sons, François and Bernard.

The personality of G.H. Martel & C° Champagne is based on the know-how of the Rapeneau family, who has been involved in making this white wine for 4 generations. Cellar master and Oenologist, Christophe, Bernard’s younger son, now runs the House, while his older son, Jean-François, is responsible for the sales development of the brand.

Very interesting tour, lovely tour guide, delicious champagnes and he even opened a brand new one that he hadn’t tried yet as an added extra! Prices very reasonable compared with the bigger names too. Highly recommend.
Visite très intéressante, charmant guide, de délicieux champagnes et il a même ouvert un tout nouveau qu'il n'avait pas encore essayé en plus! Des prix très raisonnables par rapport aux plus grands noms aussi. Recommande fortement.

Les caves ne sont pas actifs, c'est un musée avec des outils ,sans information. On reste sur sa faim. Bien que le guide était sympathique, il y avait pas mal de fautes dans les explications.
The cellars are not active, it is a museum with tools, without information. We are hungry. Although the guide was friendly, there were quite a few mistakes in the explanations.

We had an absolutely lovely time touring at Martel. Emmanuel showed us the caves for the champagne and was very kind and generous with explaining us all the basics to know about champagne- including the samples! It was so delicious we bought a few bottles to take home. Thank you so much from Sam and India!

Le guide était très bien, la visite manque un peu de storytelling en ce qui concerne l'histoire de la famille Martel ou celle qui possède désormais la maison.
The guide was very good, the visit lacks a bit of storytelling regarding the history of the Martel family or the one who now owns the house.
