It was a hard time, the work was difficult and it was not always easy.

After World War II, the family started to produce and sell thousands of bottles thanks to the help of the local cooperative. The brand name of Joly-Champagne was founded in 1954 and from that time on things speeded up. The vineyard territory expanded and the production of Champagne increased from 30.000 botlles in the 1970’s to 70.000 bottles in the 1980’s.

A big decision was made in 1998, the familiy decided to leave the cooperative and installed a press and a thermoregulated tank of stainless steel. Nowadays, all of the harvest is processed in their own cellars and commercialised by themselves from which a main part is destined for the French market. Besides that, that they also export their Champagne to Europe and Japan.

Today, the two sons also work on the estate after having followed studies in Viticulture and Oenology. Their parents, Rémy and Patricia, assist their sons with whatever and whenever they can. Also, they still benefit from the know-how of their grandparents on how to make make progress. Marie, Aurelien’s wife (one of the sons) has also joined the estate.

Great and generous degustation!
Everything was perfect! The only thing to improve - English knowledge of the owner, can be a bit difficult to understand for those who don't speak french...
