Soils suitable for Champagne wine
Between the forests of the Montagne de Reims Regional Nature Park and the agricultural plain lies Champagne region’s jewel: its vineyards. The microclimate is favourable to the cultivation of the seven grape varieties authorised in the Champagne appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) area. To the north-west of Reims, the Saint-Thierry massif has small sandy cirques which produce light champagnes and clay-limestone valleys which give the wine a rich structure with fruit aromas.
