Eight generations have passed since Nicholas CHIQUET planted his first vine in 1746s. Fernand and Gaston Chiquet –winemakers from the cradle – combine their talents to establish a winery. They are pioneers in Champagne: among the very first to grow their own grapes, produce their own champagne and market it under their own label, CHIQUET Frères. Antoine and Nicolas CHIQUET’s turn. These brothers assure continuity while respecting their ancestral rules: “Our goal is to maintain the quality we have inherited.” The techniques improve – the tradition endures.
Our vineyards, comprise 23 hectares in the heart of the Champagne region .
We grow the three grape varieties specific to Champagne,Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir according to the particularities of individual parcels.
Our growing methods incorporate the latest environmentally-sensitive techniques.
Vine protection isn’t just a matter of pest control. It also means conservation of the plants and soil as part of an agro-system. To this end, we constantly evaluate our growing methods in order to combine tradition with the latest techniques and respect for environmental rules.
