Champagne Alain Couvreur began in 1961, but truly started from a long line of farmers and barrel makers over five generations on the Massif de Saint-Thierry and in the Vesle valley. The estate is in the town of Prouilly, along the Marne, while the vineyards’ encompass over four communes – with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier planted in Prouilly, Pévy and Branscourt while Chardonnay is located in Unchair, a village eleven kilometers from Prouilly.
The vineyard soils are composed of varying clay-limestone, limestone, and chalk. His Blanc de Noirs was awarded the Grande Médaille d’Or in the Mondial de Bruxelles. This sort of recognition, especially for small growers like these, can mean far more than it may seem.
