Champagne Joseph Desruets

Our Domain is expanding…

It is important for us to share with our friends of the House significant news, announcing a new era in which our domain flourishes.

For decades, our vineyards have carried the precious imprint of a carefully preserved winemaking tradition. It is with great joy that we announce our alliance with Château les Mangons in Pineuilh, in the PDO Sainte-Foy Côtes de Bordeaux in Gironde.

Our journey on the estate began in 2021, but our commitment dates back to the 2019 vintage, with a meticulous selection of tank wines, while the 2020 harvest was crafted in Bordeaux oak barrels.

We also incorporated Champagne barrels crafted by Viard Cooperage, using oak selected from Hautvillers. This is how our first cuvées were developed and bottled in November 2023.

This moment marks the beginning of a new chapter, symbolizing the first bottling under the Collection Desruets & Comps, marking a memorable harvest.

The soil characteristics of Château Les Mangons are diverse, with about a quarter of our plots on sandy and muddy soils, two quarters on clay and muddy soils, and the remaining two quarters on limestone, clay, and muddy soils. Our soils are maintained through a combination of mechanical work tillage and a controlled management of our vines.

Our commitment to biodynamic principles is notable through the regular use of green manures such as oats, rye, and field beans during the winter. This practice prevents soil erosion and encourages aeration. Through the application of dynamized preparations, we have succeeded in significantly reducing the use of copper and sulphur.

This diversity of soils, combined with our biodynamic approach, provides an exceptional opportunity to produce blends worthy of the finest Bordeaux wines, both red and white, as well as sparkling wines. Thanks to the Merlot vines grown on limestone soils, we will have the opportunity to create sparkling wines using the traditional method.

This work is the result of a shared commitment to harmonize biodynamic practices with the natural cycles of the terroir; it makes perfect sense due to our common values.

We are proud to unveil this exceptional creation, a result of our shared passion for the art of wine. Stay tuned to discover the details of its launch and be among the first to savour our future D&C Collection cuvées.

This unique alliance between our Bordeaux colleagues and our Champagne expertise promises a distinctive experience. For all wine enthusiasts, this announces the advent of a new stage, with Bordeaux wines bearing the signature of the Joseph Desruets estate!

You will soon find these creations available on our online store.

Thank you for sharing this exciting adventure with us.
