Fifth-generation vignerons Didier and Thierry Vesselle proudly follow the footsteps of their father, Maurice Vesselle, and the classic, grower-champagne house-style he started in 1955. These talented but humble récoltants-manipulants might go unnoticed if it weren’t for their fabulous grands crus from the Montagne de Reims appellations of Bouzy and Tours-sur-Marne known for pedigreed Pinot Noir. The brothers have distinguished themselves by earning HVE III Certification by the European Union for their high standards in sustainable farming, and they are at part of the avant-garde of Champagne’s sustainable movement.
In the cellars, they prefer quick fermentations without malo, and long élevages up to five years. According to Didier, "The mark of a great wine is when you can finish it without even realizing it. It should be easy to drink.” To that end, the Vesselles succeed in leaps and bounds. Rich, powerful, earthy and unctuous, the wines of Champagne Maurice Vesselle also balance the palate with a delightful buoyancy, liveliness and elegant stoniness.
