Each year, on the 4th Friday of October, we celebrate all things Champagne, and this year we’re celebrating with a bottle that gives back.
Since 1912 the House of Telmont has been producing stunning bottles. For the last few years, the House has been working to reduce its impact on the environment. In 2017, Telmont obtained its first certification after completing an organic conversion on a portion of the vineyards. The brand will be continuing the laborious process, continuing to transition to organic farming with a goal of complete conversion of its own estate by 2025 and its partner winegrowers by 2031. This is just part of a five objective program the brand is taking to help reduce their impact on the earth. The brand received backing by the Remy Cointreau Group in 2020 that allowed them more flexibility to begin their ambitious sustainability programs.
Along with their incredible work towards sustainability, the House makes fantastic wines.
“My first tasting experience of Telmont Champagne was a beautiful discovery.” – Ludovic du Plessis, President of the House of Telmont
“The wines had a unique personality, presence, complexity and maturity, all the while preserving a remarkable ethereality. Backed by the Rémy Cointreau Group and alongside Bertrand Lhôpital, I feel very lucky to be leading this incredible adventure. Telmont is a house with character, boasting a legacy of craftsmanship and a strong ambition, poised to become the standard bearer of a new relationship with nature. We have one foot rooted in tradition and one in modernity, and both feet on (and in) the earth.”
Bertrand Lhôpital, Cellar Master and Head of Viticulture of the House of Telmont, added, “I’m proud of the wine-growing legacy which has been handed down in my family from one generation to the next. This heritage enables us to be in close contact with the earth and people, to work with the soil and create our wines the Telmont way. When Rémy Cointreau joined the adventure, contributing their proven commitment to terroir and savoir-faire, it added a new dimension to the quest for excellence which has driven our family for years.”
If you’re looking for the perfect bottle for Champagne Day, we recommend the Réserve Brut. On the nose you’ll find honeysuckle and vanilla with notes of Mirabelle plum and marzipan to taste. This bottling is a genuine expression of terroir and made with a blend of three champagne grape varieties and blended from seven distinct years for a perfectly balanced wine.
