In a building inspired by the Palladian villas in Veneto, in the heart of the city of Epernay on the famous Avenue de Champagne, Champagne Esterlin presents a unique style achieved with a traditional and distinctive method. Most of the wines are vinified without malolactic fermentation, synonymous with freshness, intensity, and good aging potential. To add more complexity, they undergo a longer aging period: 5 years for the Brut Eclat, which is disgorged 1 year before commercialization, 6 years for the Blanc de Blancs Eclat, and 10 years for the cuvées and cuvées Identity. This duration provides the wine with great aromatic and gustatory complexity, with tasting notes of superior aging.
In February 1948, three families - Fransoret, Dehu, and Cadestin - located in Mancy, a village on the southern slopes of Epernay, near the Côte des Blancs, came together around a common project to produce Champagne. They initially united 29 members over an area of 23 hectares. Since then, the Cooperative has significantly expanded and has notably developed in the renowned Coteaux du Sézannais and in the Marne Valley (La Chapelle Monthodon). Today, 70 years later, the Maison relies on nearly 200 members dedicated to cultivating and harvesting the finest grapes across a vineyard of 110 hectares.
