Domaine Claude Genet
The first village to the South-East of Epernay, Chouilly marks the beginning of the Cote des blancs. The vignobles include the distinctions of Grand Cru and Premier Cru. Chouilly producers are not limited to producing Blanc de Blancs Champagne since there are both Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grown in certain areas. Many producers, including Claude Genet, produce Rose champagnes. These are right at the top of the quality pyramid when compared with any others throughout Champagne. Four of the ‘Grandes Marques’ own vines in Chouilly. They include: Lanson, Moet & Chandon, Mercier and Roederer.
Charles Genet, Claude’s youngest son, is at the helm today. They farm 6 hectares in total, but only use 1.5 ha of fruit for domaine production. The rest is sold off to some of the big champagne houses in the area.
