Jeaunaux-Robin

What a find! This tiny family domain was founded in 1964 by Michel & Marie-Claude Jeaunaux and as of 1999 has been run by husband and wife Cyril & Clémence Jeaunaux-Robin. The estate is only 5.7 ha, with vineyards beginning at the end of the family garden. With the vineyards so close to the family home, it’s no surprise that they’ve been certified biodynamic since 2010 and organic for far longer.

Jeaunaux-Robin produce only about 40,000 bottles in their tiny cellar. There are two basket presses in the garage and the grape must flows by gravity into settling tanks under the back door and into the winery beneath the house. Cyril uses old oak barrels to vinify around a quarter of the wines, with malolactic fermentation, with the rest in stainless steel, also with malo.

Jeaunaux-Robin is situated in the village of Talus Saint-Prix in La Vallée du Petit Morin, which is named after ‘Le Petit Morin’ river which shoots off the Marne river, at the very southern tip of the Côte des Blancs. The village has only 39 ha of vineyards planted on south facing slopes an La Vallée du Petit Morin is known for its flint-rich, silex soil which imparts unmistakable texture and minerality to the wines. The average vine age on the family’s property is 40 years, which is ancient by Champagne standards and only increases the depth and richness of the wines.
