The story began in the early 1960s, inspired by René Lamblot and a handful of winegrowers from Janvry near Reims, who decided to join forces and pool their resources to craft their own Champagne. Their aim was to promote their terroir – the western slopes of the Montagne de Reims.
The years went by and the small group expanded; the founding fathers were joined by several other winegrowers who shared the same desire for solidarity and mutual assistance.
Today, the 60 winegrowers of the PRESTIGE DES SACRES Champagne are writing their own story centred on a shared passion. They champion the values passed down from generation to generation and tend their vines by applying well-thought out, considered methods to offer the very best grapes.
The essence of PRESTIGE DES SACRES Champagne is inextricably intertwined with the history of France. It was in Reims, the very heart of the Champagne Appellation area, that no fewer than 33 kings of France were crowned.
It is possible that the Prince of Turenne himself savoured wines from our vineyard since he was offered one hundred bottles of this beverage for the occasion of Louis XV’s coronation in 1722, and, at the time, some of the wines served during the celebrations undoubtedly came from our vineyard.
In homage to the origin of their vines and their rich history, our winegrowers have chosen the name PRESTIGE DES SACRES for their Champagne, and a packaging design using royal colours and symbols.
