About J.Dumangin & Fils

History
Gilles Dumangin is the fifth generation of Dumangin Champagne producing high class Champagne from Premier Cru vineyards on the Montagne de Reims. Pressing, assemblage, rémuage, disgorging, corking and labeling are all completed inhouse where Dumangin Père et Fils oversees each process personally.

Vinification
The grapes are harvested from 25-year-old vines and fermented in stainless steel and enamel vats. After the addition liqueur de triage, the wine then rests on its lees for thirty months before disgorging, which takes place approximately three months before the wine is ready for shipping. At this stage a final dosage which dictates the dryness of the Champagne and the ‘house’ style. Rémuage (the process of moving the sediment to the neck of the bottle before disgorgement) takes place manually and on wooden stands.

Cépage
25% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir & 50% Pinot Meunier
