A Trip To Champagne Autréau

4th September 2020


Laurent Autréau, owner of Champagne Autréau, to me is a man who knows how he wants to make his Champagne and with goals to produce 1 million bottles, it’s clear his method is paying off.

Laurent took us on a tour of his winery, showing off his cellars, bottling and labelling station, as well as giving us access to his personal tasting room, where he goes with family and close friends to taste his still ageing Champagne to see how he can better improve it.

Before the grand tour, he sat us down in his tasting room, open to the public, to enjoy some of his Champagne, which you can watch here:

The Autréau Family are based in the picturesque village of Champillon, near Epernay and have been involved in growing grapes and producing Champagne since 1670. I highly recommend a visit to this wonderful Champagne house.

Thank you, Laurent, for your time.
