ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Alfred Gratien founded this estate based on the philosophy that Champagne is not manufactured, it is created. His commitment to quality was reflected in his insistence on selecting only premium fruit, vinification exclusively in small oak casks, limited production, and consideration for the character and individuality of the vineyards. Following in his footsteps, Nicolas Jaeger, as the fourth generation, remains dedicated to his ancestor's ideals and traditions. Under his watchful eye, only the very best cuvées of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier spend a minimum of six months in 228 liter oak casks without malolactic fermentation, followed by at least three years in the bottle before release. This special care, coming from one of the few remaining handmade champagne houses in the world, defines Alfred Gratien as truly exceptional.
