RION SIMONOur family domain of 2.14 ha extends entirely on the terroir of Courmas, a small village located in the area of the small Montagne de Reims, 10 km southwest of Reims, on the Champagne road.
Since 2007, I represent the 4th generation, and thus succeeds my father Pascal Rion. More than a profession, a passion, I bring my know-how as well as my ideas on the vine work as well as on the oenology. I have developed an environmentally friendly viticulture with 100% mechanical soil cultivation and I hope to obtain the High Environmental Value (HVE) and Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne (VDC) labels in May 2020.
I now propose 6 cuvées in a volume that remains confidential since we draw about 9950 bottles including 1000 bottles for the blanc de blancs, 800 for the blanc de noirs and 1000 for the Eclat 2 Grape varieties. The last vintages come from the heart of the cuvée at the time of harvest like the cuvée Eclat 2 Grape varieties, a perfect balance between its 2 grape varieties (50% Chardonnay, 50% pinot noir), the blanc de blancs where we find the finesse of the 100% Chardonnay typical of our terroir, and the blanc de noirs 80% pinot noir and 20% Meuniers malo partial extra brut (4 g/l).
Discover new vintages that will come out in 3 to 4 years, vinified and aged in oak barrels without filtration.
