Champagne producers over generations…

After the second global war, in the 50’s, Marcel MENU started to plant the first vines.

In 1953, his daughter, Bernadette MENU gets married with Lucien CHARTON from Méry-Prémecy, then they take care of a part of the partenal vineyard in Vrigny.

Later, they plant on MeryPrémecy’s soil the first plants of vine in the village. Throughout the years, the estate grows and takes care of 5 hectares of vineyard, the couple was selling 20 000 bottles with its own brand CHAMPAGNE CHARTON-MENU.

Their son, Raynald, was always working with them in the vine growing. In 1978, he decides to continue his parents’ activity accompanied by his wife, Sylvie. All together, they created CHAMPAGNE CHARTON- GUILLAUME brand and sold 40 000 bottles per year.

The future of the estate is well prepared because their children Anne-Laure and Bertrand are working on to bring a complementary vision on the commercial part and the vine growing part.

Our vineyard, our passion…

Our estate takes care of 6 hectares of vineyard divided into 2 different villages: Mery-Prémecy and Vrigny (premier cru), planted with 80% of Meunier grapes, 10% of Pinot Noir and 10% of Chardonnay.

We place sustainable wine growing in the earth of our preoccupation, in order to respect nature as much we can and also people working on the vineyard.

Our reward, your fidelity…

  • Ratafia de Champagne

    Ratafia de Champagne

    Ratafia de Champagne Sélection is a fine, harmonious union of grape musts, old Marc de Champagne and wine eaux-de-vie aged in oak barrels. On the nose it reveals aromas of prunes and gingerbread , whilst on the palate warm tones of honey and candied fruits emerge. It is ideal as an aperitif, where it elegantly pairs with the finest of dishes.

    Did you know ? Ratafia is to Champagne what Pineau is to Charentes, Pommeau to Normandy, Macvin to Jura and Floc to Gascony.



Every year on 22 January, Winegrowers and Champagne Houses join together to celebrate the feast of St Vincent: a day of thanksgiving for the previous year’s harvest, when winegrowers in villages throughout Champagne commit their endeavours in the coming year to the patronage of St Vincent.


The 2017 harvest ended on Monday 11 September, after 10 days of grape cuttings.
Despite all our precautions, the gray rot was very present on certain plots because of the heavy rains and the high temperatures of the month of August. So we had to carefully sort each cluster, to keep only the grapes healthy and qualitative. Rendez-vous in a few months to appreciate the quality of future wines ...
