Champagne Rémi Georgeton Village: Ludes Appellation: 3.5 ha Grower: Rémi Georgeton Rémi Georgeton returned to his family’s 3.5 hectare domain in 2006 after finishing his studies and doing a number of apprenticeships. The Georgeton-Rafflin domaine had been certified HVE3 in 2014 and then certified organic and biodynamic in 2021. Rémi marked this milestone by producing champagnes under his own name that express his passion for terroir focused wines and mimimal intervention. He ferments with indigenous yeast and has reduced total SO2 in his champagnes to under 20mg/L. Rémi favors fermentations and aging in old barrels and large foudres and leaves his wines unfiltered and unfined. He has inherited the family’s vineyards which are 1er Cru within the villages of Ludes, Chigny-Les-Roses, and Rilly-la-Montagne, and Grand Cru in the village of Verzy. The vineyards are predominantly Pinot Noir with a complement of Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.
