Jeaunaux-Robin

The small Jeaunaux-Robin estate was founded in 1964 by Michel and Marie-Claude Jeaunaux in the village of Talus-Saint-Prix on the border between the Côte de Blancs and the Côte de Sézanne.Today, it is their son Cyril Jeaunaux and his wife Clémence Robin who look after the vineyards. The small estate of only five hectares is mainly planted with Meunier, a grape variety that resists the late frosts common in this region. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are also grown on a few small plots.

With the transition from organic to biodynamic viticulture, Jeaunaux-Robin is also synonymous with respect for terroir and tradition. The grapes are still pressed by hand and vinification is spontaneous in steel tanks, glazed concrete or used oak barrels that are at least 10 years old.

The wines that emerge from it bring out the minerality of the soil: a mixture of clay and limestone with a high proportion of flint, which is rarely found in Champagne).


More about Jeaunaux-Robin

The large limestone cave directly under the cellar creates the perfect conditions for storing the bottles between 2 and 7 years before disgorgement.

« Cyril's champagnes are fruit-driven thanks to the Meunier, but always reflect the specificity of the place and its soils. This is also evident in the varietal Chardonnays. With their spicy and round character, always oscillating between fruit and refreshing bitterness, his champagnes are very gastronomic and gain even more by accompanying food. »

Vallée du Petit Morin

Jeaunaux-Robin is located in a very special terroir called Vallée du Petit Morin, which takes its name from the tributary of the Marne that crosses the valley. Because of the many small lakes and wetlands, which have great biodiversity but are not suitable for viticulture, the Champagne vineyards are all located away from the water, on the gentle slopes of the east side of the river.

The Vallée du Petit Morin is one of the 17 terroirs of Champagne and belongs to the Côte de Blancs sub-region, which borders the Côte de Sézanne to the southwest. Although the surrounding areas (in both sub-regions) mainly grow Chardonnay, this valley mainly grows Pinot Meunier, which is better adapted to the climate.

The soil is known for its great minerality, of which Jeaunaux-Robin is one of the best examples.
