The domain has its roots half way between the Champagne capital, Epernay and Château-Thierry. Alain and Romain Mercier assemble their Champagnes using traditional technics, respecting the methods inherited from their ancestors. All steps of the Champagnes production are done on the family estate.

Established by Emile Mercier in the 1920's, the family operation has seen generations of passionate winemakers taking over. Lucien, the grand father and Alain, the father, both managed to give Romain Mercier all the knowledge, know-how and craftmenship necessary to take over the family winery’s lead. For over a century, each generation has brought their personal touch to give birth to the Champagne Alain Mercier & Fils brand and enabled it to create signature Champagnes. Romain carries on with this philosophy by working in their vineyard which consists of the 3 most prestigious Champagne grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Each Champagne is treated in enameled steel tanks or in oak barrels to give it its own recognizable identity. This identity of Champagne Alain Mercier & Fils, represents the "Vigneron Indépendant" quality label.

More than just Bubbly!
A very interesting visit to this Champagne house with a great guide. The taster session was a real treat with samples of the lovely wine produced. The surrounding vineyards are in a most beautiful part of the Marne valley with tremendous views. A must for anyone visiting this region.

Zeer goed, zeker doen.
Een perfecte rondleiding in prima Engels. Veel leuker dan bij de heel grote champagne bedrijven.

A lovely afternoon in Passy Sur Marne
We were greeted by M. Mercier who speaks excellent English. It was a lovely sunny afternoon in the vineyards of the Marne Valley. An informative personal tour of the caves with a very detailed explanation of the small producers way of making champagne from vine to final shipping of the bottles. We finished with an exceptionally pleasant tasting. How could we not purchase some of these gorgeous champagnes. M. Mercier also arranged shipping of the wines back home. We would recommend a visit to Alain Mercier and we will return ourselves.

Very informative
Our tour guide was very informative and passionate about his business. It was lovely to know that the business had been in the family for years and had some champagnes named after great grandads etc. The tour was very thorough and all our questions were answered. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Great visit!
Me and my partner had a fantastic visit at Alain Mercier. Just as advertised it was very unpretentious and relaxed. Romain was the perfect host and described everything in intricate detail and answered all of our questions. We really learned a lot. Compared to the visit we made at Moët & Chandon, this was a much better learning experience and much more personal. And the champagnes were fantastic too! We will come back for sure.

Een absolute aanrader!
Een geweldige rondleiding gehad van Romain Mercier bij Champagnehuis Champagne Alain Mercier. Een zeer bevlogen en vakbekwame Fransman die perfect engels sprak. Alles te weten gekomen over het totale proces van het maken van champagne. Van de verschillende druiven, persen tot uiteindelijk het bottelen en etiketteren van de fles. Tenslotte bij de proeverij 7 heerlijke verschillende champagnes geproefd. Conclusie: de rondleiding met de proeverij van 7 verschillende champagnes is een absolute aanrader. Romain nogmaals bedankt!
