Wine Makers

Charpentier Millesime. by Jacky Charpentier

The Charpentier’s have been winemakers since 1920, when Pierre Charpentier began growing grapes. Before Champagne was glamorous, winemakers in the Champagne region essentially sold the grapes they produced to negotiators or to a local clientele if the economy was challenging. Pierre also produced red wine, but often the barrels used to store this wine were more valuable than the wine itself!

 

It was Pierre’s son, Marcellin, who first produced Charpentier Champagne in 1954. Four years later, Marcellin died suddenly and his wife, Solange, was left to run the business while rearing three children. While no doubt a difficult time for Solange, her son Jacky began making wine at the age of 11, showing prodigious ability.

 

Over the next few years, through hard work, diligence and passion, Jacky Charpentier managed to save and, indeed improve, the family business, achieving the recognition and respect that is now associated with the J Charpentier label.

 

Jacky’s son Jean-Marc now runs the winemaking at Charpentier. With 38 plots of vineyards and three different varieties of grapes grown, there is a lot to be discovered among the Charpentier range. The grapes from different plots are pressed separately so as Champagne can be made to represent each terroir, not just grape varieties or blends.

Press Reviews

“Huge, well-integrated and serious champagne with impressive structure. Yeasty nose, macadamia mouthfeel and, on the palate, red apple and lime.” Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times

“Bread yeast and grape must, floral notes and citrus on the nose. Developed characters – macadamia and walnut flavours with white stone fruit and red apple. Long and complex finish.” CB, The Sunday Times
