With the “Côte des Blancs”, the “Montagne de Reims” and the “Vallée de la Marne”, the “Côte des Bar” is one of the large tracts of land that shapes the Champagne vineyards. Classified with an Appellation Controlée since 1927, the Aube region covers more than 7,650 hectares of vineyard. Covering 22% of the Champagne vineyards, in 2006 the Aube region produced almost a quarter of the 321 million bottles sold throughout the world.
