Heidsieck & Co Monopole

Heidsieck & Co Monopole has had a brisk export business since its creation, particularly to Germany and Russia. His Imperial Highness the Tsar was a great lover of Champagne, and every year he had two trains full of Heidsieck Monopole sent from France. From there, Florens-Louis Heidsieck began exporting his wines immediately.

Between 1885, it’s 100th anniversary year, and 1900, the House went through a boom period. It sold 952,000 bottles to Great Britain in 1884 and more than 400,000 bottles to Russia in 1912.

Heidsieck & CO Monopole was a leading brand at the turn of the 20th century. It was the official supplier to the King of Prussia and Emperor of Germany (1818), the English court (1911), the Swedish court and King Gustaf (1933), and to Tsar Nicolas II.

Behind this fine range of Champagnes are the creators of Heidsieck & CO Monopole’s savoir-faire. Since 1785, we have preserved the excellence of our vineyards, guaranteeing the quality and finesse of our Champagnes.

This is how Hervé Ladouce, our cellar director, protects the Monopole style we hold to be so precious. His vision nourishes our champagnes, enabling them to last for years and generations.

Hervé Ladouce masterfully blends the grand tradition of Champagne with the changing times. The Heidsieck & CO Monopole Cellar Director has to know how to respect our past heritage in order to better predict the future… This is even more important for a house like ours, whose founder Florens Louis Heidsieck gave a bottle of our first cuvée to Marie Antoinette.
