The Maison J.P. Gaudinat is the story of a family of winegrowers working in Champagne for 9 generations… An ancestral know-how that makes this family one of the oldest and most respected in the Marne Valley.
The Gaudinats have always cultivated their vines with passion, high standards and respect for noble and well-reasoned tradition.
Tony Gaudinat and his parents had the good fortune to inherit an exceptional estate in the Marne Valley. This 12-hectare vineyard includes the 3 main Champagne grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay. This diversity offers a rich range of champagnes for all tastes.
The Meunier accounts for approximately 65 percent of the vineyard, it is the most widespread grape variety of our region in particular for its rustic side, it also brings some suppleness in the flavours.
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir make up the rest of the vineyard. The first being the only white grape variety benefiting from the Champagne appellation and bringing freshness to the wines. The second adds power to them.
The 9th generation of the Gaudinat family is now represented by Tony, son of Jean-Pierre and Monique Gaudinat, who naturally took over the estate in 2004 after studying viticulture.
He strives, under the wise advice of his parents, to constantly improve his technicality, his know-how, the quality of his vines and his wine, in order to satisfy a prestigious, aesthetic and demanding clientele. While working with champagne in keeping with the tradition of Tony Gaudinat, he undertook to make the Maison J-P Gaudinat part of a sustainable viticulture that respects the environment.
Tony’s work is now recognised with the High Environmental Value (HVE) label .
Sabrina, his partner, recently arrived on the farm and joined him in order to share the family spirit that is so highly valued by the clientele. As luck would have it, she studied in the wine and spirits trade area. The daughter of farmers, she also inherited a love of land and heritage.
