About Champagne Vincent Couche

Champagne, France

Since 2008, I have been managing my vineyards in the heart of the Côte des Bar using Biodynamic methods. My vineyards are split over two terroirs: Montgueux, a parcel planted in Chardonnay facing due south on chalky soil, and Buxeuil, with a majority of Pinot Noir planted in the calcareous-clay or clay-marl soils of the Kimmeridgian period.

Eager to give meaning to my profession as a winegrower and to preserve the agronomic and environmental balance, I naturally turned to biodynamic viticulture. My main objective is to produce authentic wines of excellent quality.  When it comes to vinification, Biodynamics means that our methods are as natural as possible. Biodynamics makes it possible to produce healthy wines while enhancing the specificity and luxuriance of my varietals and terroirs
