Georges Remy

Georges Remy

His ancestors grew grapes in Bouzy, his grandfather was the first to make his own wine, starting in 1950. After studying wine Georges Remy worked for some time in Bordeaux, where he developed a great affection for red wine. Returning to Champagne he started out making still red wines: Bouzy Rouge. 

No bubbles? Remy realized they were being missed in his Champagne cellars. And so the third generation winemaker returned to his family's profession: since 2014 he has been making champagne as well. Nowadays the family owns over four hectares of vineyards around Bouzy, Montagne de Reims, where pinot noir is the number one grape.

Very quickly Remy made the transition to organic farming: no pesticides and herbicides, all the more cover crops between the vines. At the same time the winemaker tries out different biodynamic practices, by producing his own compost and preparations to revive the soil. Remy cherishes the vineyards his grandparents laid out: whenever he needs new roots he'll use plant material from the over 50 years old parcels. Remy's cellar contains quite a few new oak barrels in different sizes; malolactic fermentation is usually allowed in his wines.
