PRODUCER INFO: Since its creation, Champagne Benoit Cocteaux has been driven by a quest for excellence. Located on one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Sézannais, the vineyard draws its strength and its character from a subsoil full of chalk. Owners Hélène and Benoit, growers-handlers and independent winegrowers, work every day with the greatest respect. Certified High Environmental Value, they practice sustainable viticulture, making the preservation of the environment a priority. Since 1650, generations of winegrowers have passed on the heritage of Champagne Benoît Cocteaux. Two families united under the same banner: Hélène and Benoît Cocteaux. Both from the wine world, we are the protectors of a secular know-how. Aware that the sustainability of the family business will go through the international, she flew to the United States for a year to better understand this future market. Back in France, she began her career in tourism. In 2003, Hélène and Benoît met. The beginning of a great story. From this meeting is born, Champagne Benoit Cocteaux. The union of two origins, two terroirs and the same dream: to offer great Champagne wines.
