Although the family have been vine growers in Champagne for well over a century, it wasn’t until 1952 that Serge Chapuy started to produce and commercialize the current brand. His son Arnold, the current chairman succeeded his father as head of the estate in 1981 and he was joined by his daughter Elodie in 2003, who looks after the international market. Aurore the youngest daughter has been in charge of the production since 2008.
All the Champagnes follow the traditional champagne method, the first alcoholic fermentation is undertaken in stainless steel vats. Once a year all the still wines are bottled so that the “Prise de Mousse” secondary fermentation happens in bottle.
The laying period is 2/3 years for non-vintage champagnes and a minimum of 5 years for the vintage champagnes.
