A singular approach: Our vineyard is located on the coteaux of Charly‑sur‑Marne and Saulchery in the Vallée de la Marne. The cru is reknow of the quality of its meuniers. According to us, luxury is time, and we are convinced a rich and hearthy soil is the only condition to elaborate an exceptionnal wine. Thus, we grow our small vineyard (only 1,07 hectare) the organic way through a global and slow approach: Jerome Lefèvre works almost entirely by hand, which no machine and chemicals, as influenced by Fukuoka’s natural agriculture. We privilegiate animal for hoeing as well as we only use plants and essentiel oils. Each vine requires a specific attention. This singular approach could be seen as an intellectual statement, inspired my vitalist theories (those which inspired Steiner’s biodynamic) as well as passionate readings of Novalis, Thoreau, Bachelard, Leopold and Fukuoka. Luxury is also rarity. We only produce micro-cuvées: for example 1000 bottles of our rosé de saignée Les Illuminations and for our blanc de noirs Pléiades, each numbered by hand. 900 bottles are made of each one of our millesime, with specific poignettage including two manual remuages. Contemporary champagnes as objects of contemplation: According to us, sustainability is definitely a contemporary way of living. Thus, our cultural approach is the same for the wine making. We privilegiate slow fermentations as well as we adapt the different steps of vinification to the moon. Delalot champagnes are living and expressive, they have a strong terroir typicity as well as they are very contemporary. A specific use of wood reinforce the singularity of our champagnes. We elaborate our champagnes to be real wines. They are “gourmands” champagnes, caracterized by an intense fruit and a very subtle sparkling to make it perfect for gastronomy. We control with the same attention the quality of sugar, to adapt very precisely to each different cuvées to reinforce their richness. Our contemporary champagnes are made for the most beautiful tables. According to us, the alchemy of wine reveals a sort of poetry. Thus, we invite you to taste our champagnes as real objects of contemplation.
