The Roger-Constant Lemaire family is proud of their ecological approach and only use marine algae to protect their vines, so there is no need for pesticides. The grapes are selected and harvested by hand and only the first pressing is used for production.
The history of Champagne Roger-Constant Lemaire began in Hautvillers at the end of the 19th century. Hautvillers is the cradle of the Champagne wine. Here the gardener and poet Désiré Lemaire bought a number of vineyards leading to the start of a family tradition.
It was his grandson Roger-Constant Lemaire who started to blend different grapes into high-quality Champagnes and in 1945, he was able to double his area of vineyards and moved his company to Villers-sous-Châtillon. The daughter of Roger-Constant, Brigitte Lemaire, was married to Gilles Tournant and together with their 2 sons, Sébastien and Guillaume, they continuated the family tradition.
The vinification of Champagne Roger-Constantin Lemaire uses non malolactic fermentation methods to ensure a better quality of Champagne with its own natural acidity. The Champagne has an inherent sweetness and a very low dosage of cane sugar is added.
The goal of the Roger-Constant Lemaire family is to produce exceptional Champagnes while using rare but excellent vinifcation methods and more ecologically friendly techniques. The estate covers 12 hectares of vignobles and exports its Champagne Roger-Constant Lemaire worldwide.
