The current Cellar Master Dominique Demarville succeeded Jacques Peters, having worked with him and learnt from him for many months. After the first harvest in Champagne in 1985, Dominique Demarville discovered a real passion for winemaking and viticulture Champagne. He decided to get a technical degree in oenology and viticulture at the High School of Champagne wine Avize, then a national oenology degree from the University of Burgundy in Dijon.During his studies, he had the opportunity to practice winemaking in several additional regions: Alsace, Burgundy Vosnes-Romanée, the Bordeaux Margaux and, of course, Champagne in Ay and Rilly-la-Montagne.
At Veuve Clicquot, the grapes from different varieties and plots are kept separate to preserve the characteristics of each terroir until blending. They are a large negociant - meaning they buy in their grapes from trusted growers in the Reims region.
