Passionate about their multifaceted ancestral profession, Christiane Delabarre and her daughter use their know-how and talent to produce excellent quality Champagne wines near Château Thierry, appreciated in France and abroad.
The range consists of seven vintages, with blends of the 3 Champagne grape varieties: 27% Pinot Noir, 60% Pinot Meunier and 13% Chardonnay make up the vineyard of Maison de Champagne Delabarre in the Marne Valley.
The DELABARRE estate has existed since 1895 and is now managed by the fifth generation. Spread over 6 hectares of vineyards, the DELABARRE estate is owned, harvested, and manipulated by women from generation to generation. The grapes are harvested, pressed, fermented, and bottled on site.
With the indispensable support of her partner Georges, Charline DELABARRE has been managing the estate since 2017, but has been present on the property since 2012, after obtaining her degree in vineyard management. Charline's goal is to transmit the feminine know-how of her Champagne and to develop its international export to make it known to as many people as possible. With a deep respect for the land and a passion for wine, Charline and Georges cultivate their strong personalities to reflect them in their production of champagnes. Together, they select the best grapes from their six hectares of vineyards. From row work with plowing, pressing, blending, and bottling, everything is 100% home-made.
