    Meet our Grower: Jean Baillette-Prudhomme

    Meet Champagne Jean Baillette-Prudhomme!

    Laureen Baillette is a true star hailing from the Montagne de Reims region. At only 29 years old, Laureen is the vigneronne of Champagne Jean Baillette-Prudhomme. With her mother’s guidance and sister’s help, Jean Baillette-Prudhomme is one of the few vineyards in Champagne managed by three women!

    The secret of this Champagne is old vineyards and at least 50% reserve wine used in every cuvée. Laureen follow the traditions of her father, producing all of her Champagne on an old press (that she painted pink!).

    Watch the video above for a quick look at Champagne Jean Baillette-Prudhomme’s traditional wood press and extraordinary caves!(from Fat Cork on Vimeo.).
