Champagne Lejeune Père et Fils
About the winery
The winery Champagne Lejeune Père et Fils (Father and Son) is located in the small village of Villers Marmery, on the slopes South East of “Parc Régional de la Montagne de Reims” (Reims’ Mountain Regional Park).
Our family has been devoting to the vine cultivation and the champagne’s wine process since the 17th century.
Our Champagne is produced directly in our property winery according to the traditional methods passed down from father to son.
The traditions are preserved but the skills/techniques have changed… and continue to develop.
The vineyard is divided into several plots covering 3 villages: Villers Marmery, Verzy and Ambonnay tagged 1er and Grand Cru.
The grape variety Chardonnay represents 90% of the vineyards. Few plots of Pinot Noir are planted in Ambonnay, Grand Cru, a village where we can also find red wine in addition to champagne.
