Vigneron Passioné - Adrien Rousseaux

 

The village of Verzenay is located 17 km south-east of Reims. Located on the hillside and surrounded by vines, it is crowned by the forest of the Montagne de Reims. Its prestigious Grand Cru classified vineyard (among the 17 in Champagne) covers 500 hectares, explored by many winegrowers. The largest Champagne Houses all have a vineyard there to develop their prestigious vintages. It is here that the Rousseaux family has been working the vines since the end of the 18th century. It was at the beginning of the 20th century that the first bottles were marketed under the name of Paul Rousseaux. His son, Michel develops handling, his grandson, Denis created the current Rousseaux-Batteux brand in 1976 with his wife Laurence, niece of the famous football coach of the great stadium of Reims and of the French team, Albert Batteux. Currently, with the arrival of Adrien within the estate, it is the 4th generation of "Rousseaux" who make our various cuvées with respect for traditions.
