Champagne Gardet

Champagne, France

A perfect balance between tradition and modernity for outstanding wines.

Maison Gardet came into being in the late 19th century when Charles Gardet, a shopkeeper with an adventurous outlook for the time, founded his establishment at Epernay. In the 1930's, Georges Gardet, son of the founder, moved into a Belle Epoque residence in Chigny-les-Roses, with a very precise aim: to develop the Champagne Gardet brand, whilst continuing to supply wines of unimpeachable quality. To do so, he based his method on the secular champagne making rules: a high quality grapes supply and a wine making process fully orient toward excellence. This purpose and the respect of tradition are still at the heart of the current owners' preoccupations: the PRIEUX family. Deeply attached to their roots, the Champagne region, the family has been working in the arboricultural and agricultural escorts for years passing on their love for their land from generation to generation. These values have shaped the family spirit which is now perpetuated by Christophe PRIEUX, President of Maison Gardet, and Oliver LEGENDRE, Managing Director. Maintaining the quality and character of its champagnes year after year, whilst taking advantage of the latest technological innovations in order to master even more finely every parameter of "method champenoise" winemaking. The essence of Maison Gardet's expertise lies in this priceless balance between tradition and modernity - a balance that defines the Gardet style.
