Jean Vesselle

After more than three centuries of Champagne tradition passed on from father to son, then to daughter, Delphine Vesselle continues with her husband David the work of her ancestors and more particularly that of her father, Jean. Her vineyard is composed of 15 hectares, divided between Bouzy, a village classified as Grand Cru and therefore of great renown, its surroundings, but also Loches-sur-Ource, opposite the famous Riceys, so that all her vintages are very famous for pinot noir. This is why 90% of the vineyard is planted with this grape variety and the rest with Chardonnay. The Vesselle family attaches great importance to the environment, by reinforcing the natural defences of the vine in order to limit treatments. Since 2000, they have been optimising the working of the soil and the use of grass to avoid using weedkillers. Her objective is to use renewable energies and that is why, in 2007, she installed photovoltaic panels and a rainwater recovery system. All her harvest is vinified, handled and marketed in Bouzy by her own care. The harvest in Champagne is necessarily manual; the grapes are immediately pressed in 2 pneumatic presses. After a meticulous settling, the fermentations are carried out in complete serenity, thanks to thermo-regulated vats. The blends are made in order to respect both the character of the year and the typicity of the different vintages. In February, the wine is bottled; the bottles remain in the cellar for the formation of the foam, then the maturation process is spread out over 2 to 10 years, depending on the cuvée. Disgorging is the last step before marketing.
