The Chiquet family can trace its expertise in tending vines back eight generations to their ancestor Nicolas Chiquet who began winemaking in 1746. After World War I, the Chiquet brothers broke with longstanding tradition: rather than selling grapes to the large houses, they struck out alone and sold Champagne from grapes they grew themselves. In 1935, Gaston Chiquet separated his lots from his brother’s and began to expand his holdings in the Montagne de Riems. Today Gaston’s grandsons Antoine and Nicolas work 56 acres in the villages of Dizy, Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and Hautvillers. The bottle is something of a pleasant anomaly as it pertains to place and time.
