Champagne Guillaume Sergent
Guillaume Sergent farms a hectare and a half by himself, a set up that he says allows him to understand his vines perfectly.
His parents made wine under their own label until 2008, when Guillaume and his brother inherited their small family estate. His brother got two hectares and now sells his grapes to Moët. Guillaume decided on different path and set out to start his own domaine. Having studied oenology and completed a stage at Louis Roederer, he had a lot of winemaking experience but never was able to make wines in his own style. He had watched as a new generation of growers rise, many of whom were his peers, and was eager to follow suit. In 2011 he released his first wines.
From his hectare and a half in Vrigny and Coulommes, Guillaume continues to evolve and push boundaries. He speaks about his vinification style as a simple and precise process: he assumes that it is his grapes that will produce the wine. As the old adage goes: “Good grapes make good wine.”
