The Family Estate's Motto : A Premium quality Champagne at an "owner" price .
Champagne CHAPUY is a family estate of 8 ha vineyards . The majority of them are planted in the "Côte des Blancs" with Chardonnay grape variety, which allows to produce a fine and light Blanc de Blancs Champagne, very typical of this region. Among them, 3 ha belong to the famous "Grand Cru" village of Oger. Other family plots, located in the "Coteaux Sud d'Epernay" and planted with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties (3ha), are used to produce the blended Champagnes, more fruity and mellow.
CHAPUY Family is inextricably linked with Oger's history because one of its ancestors was mayor of the village just after the French Revolution.
Wine - growing is stuck in the family tradition since more than a century, but Serge CHAPUY was the actual brand creator and started to commercialize Champagne in 1952. His son Arnold ,the actual Chairman , decided in 1981 to succeed his father at the head of the Family Estate . He was joined by his daughter Elodie in 2003 , who cares about the development of the brand overseas .Aurore, the younger daughter of the CHAPUY's family is in charge of the vineyards farming and winemaking since 2008.
"Lightness, delicacy and freshness."
Most of Chapuy's Champagnes are made of a blending of wines that have undergone their malolactic fermentation and other not only the vintage Champagnes were fully vinified without malolactic fermentation to retain their freshness in time. Primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Clarification involves only filtering but no centrifuging. Blended wines are finally bottled to start their secondary fermentation "Prise de mousse", 6 to 8 months after the harvest.
Conservation "sur lattes" (maturation on lees in the bottle): 2 to 3 years for non-vintage Cuvées and 5 years for vintage Champagnes. Storage after disgorging: 3 to 6 months depending on he season'sales. The dosage or "liqueur d'expédition" is only based on Chardonnay wines so that it doesn't mark aromatically the vintage Cuvées.
Highly Appreciated Champagne
In Japan, Champagne Chapuy is also highly appreciated. Chapuy's Brut Tradition and Demi-sec Tradition were exclusively served by Japan Airlines for their First Class passengers in 2018 because of the high quality of Chapuy. It was praised for its well-balanced body and freshness of white flowers and honey.
In addition, Chapuy was featured in the famous Japanese Manga "Drops of God". They even collaborated to issue a special edition Champagne with a scene of the manga printed on the bottle, captioned "Forget me not".
Chapuy's Champagnes received awards for several times. For example, Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Millesime 2012 and Livree Noire Brut 2008 got Silver and Bronze awards in Decanter respectively.
