Champagne on the Beach

Champagne Morel by the Seaside

Celebrations are made up of the small moments in life, moments with meaning for those involved – a birthday, promotion, new venture or personal accomplishment – so when these moments come about, it’s worth enhancing them with a bottle of Champagne.

Champagne Morel presents a wonderful representation of what you would expect from a bottle of quality Champagne, operated by a family trio, all hard workers with a bursting passion for Champagne. Simon manages the vineyard, Pascal guarantees the production standards and Emilie puts the finishing touches to the bottles.

Champagne Morel’s cellars date back to the 18th century and within their cellars they hold a personal display of history with a vinotheque/vinothek of their Champagnes dating back to 1947.

Preserving their vineyards for future generations is important to the family, which is why they operate in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. From 1850 to 1930 the Morel family was focused on cultivating their land and producing Pinot des Riceys wines.

Feeling cramped in their old cellars, in 2005 they expanded, building new cellars to allow for the further production and storage of their Champagnes.
