Bouzy: Grand Cru classified vineyard

Champagne, like Bordeaux or Burgundy, has its own hierarchy of "crus". The vine-growers and wine traders first came to an agreement in 1919 and released a classification of villages, also called "crus". In order to do this, Champagne professionals rigorously assessed and compared the quality of the grapes and wines from each village.The aim was to calculate the grape price (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay) from each cru.

In 1935, the ranking was updated and graded from 80 to 100 %, with 17 villages graded at 100 % (called "grands crus"), 34 graded from 90 to 99 % (called "premiers crus") the other crus (about 200), with no specific grading, called "autres crus".

Thanks to this, the terroir of Bouzy, located on the south side of the Montagne de Reims marked Champagne history by being a listed « Grand Cru » as early as 1919. We are fully aware of this heritage, of this crowning for the King of wines!
