“The quality of our wine comes directly from the quality of the grapes we have.”- Bénédicte Leroy
The history of the estate starts in the 70's, with the first generation of farmers who straight away cultivated grapes organically. Under Gerard Ruppert, the vines were grown to sell grapes to local cooperatives. Approaching retirement in 2009, he decided to hand over the estate to his daughter, Bénédicte Leroy. She continued to farm organically the vineyard and even more, converting the vineyards to biodynamic farming. But also started to make her own Champagnes. Thanks to the work of her father, the grapes she works with are famous for being impeccable.
