On the hills of Charly-sur-Marne and Saulchery, within the area of Vallée de la Marne, the tiny 1.07 hectare vineyard of Domaine Delalot gently lies. Éliane Delalot is a slender lady of yesteryear who, in the eighth generation of a family of vignerons, has always worked her own vineyard without any mechanical tools or harmful products. This approach naturally led in 2010 to the conversion of the winery to organic farming, which is now followed by Éliane's son, Jérôme Lefevre, professor of contemporary art history, who stopped his teaching in Paris to devote himself to the production of Champagne.
The production is therefore custom-made, but extremely accurate and attentive to the smallest detail: the vines are treated and cared for individually to ensure the best possible bunches, the cuvées originate exclusively from the individual vintages, the bottles are then all numbered by hand. But the most important thing for Jérôme Lefevre is probably the sustainability of the environment. Both the wine-growing and the wine-making process embrace the principles of organic agriculture, winking at the biodynamic and vitalist doctrines: the work in the vineyard is carried out almost entirely by hand or with the use of animals to reduce emissions to their minimum.
In the cellar slow and natural fermentation is preferred, according to the various phases of the moon and sugars are limited to a minimum. Each cuvée produced is therefore a product as authentic and natural as possible of its terroir, made through the "alchemy" of winemakers in the cellar. Delalot's Champagnes are always "greedy" and characterized by the richness of the fruits, with a subtle and elegant perlage. These wines are perfect for gastronomy and for lovers of sophistication in Champagne.
