Thomas’s small estate (2.5ha), based in Chamery, has been passed on by many generations in the family who also farm cereals (hence the wheat
sheaf represented on the label). In the early 1980s, his parents created their own brand and decided to leave the co-op. They invested in a traditional
Champagne press, and started making their own Champagne, focusing on quality. At the end of the 1990s, they started to plough between the vines
only, and left natural cover crops between the rows in order to restore the balance of the soil. In 2003, after an internship with biodynamic winemakers in Burgundy, Thomas really understood the means to prioritise a more natural approach in farming, so to let the expression of the fruit speak.

The domain encompasses 7 vineyard Crus that are on the bottom to mid slopes, laying on a rich variety of soils and with different expositions, as the village of Chamery comes into the form of an amphitheatre.

Vines planted in 1961 at the bottom of the hill below town, alongside some wheat fields. Deep sands / silts.
