Domaine Champagne Régis Poissinet

Reconnecting with nature

The seven-hectare estate of Champagne Régis Poissinet, implanted in limestone clay and alluvial limestone terroirs of the Marne Valley, has been  family run since 1947.

The vines, that are on average 33 years of age, are spread over 35 parcels around the villages of Cuchery, Baslieux, Leuvrigny, Troissy and Mareuil le Port.

The main grape variety is Pinot Meunier, completed with Chardonnay and a little Pinot Noir.

With the arrival of Régis at the head of the Domaine, the vineyard is currently undergoing a veritable cultural change.

Cultivated with absolute respect for the natural environment, and for the intrinsic balance of the vines, it has gained the freedom
to express all the subtlety and immense wealth of the terroir.

Our renunciation of the use of herbicides marked the beginning of this transformation, and today, preserving biodiversity is at the heart of our preoccupations when working the soils.

Fauna and flora now flourish freely, and the exchange that takes place between the soil and the vines’ root systems is stimulated thanks to the presence of a huge variety of living micro‑organisms.

An essential condition for the terroir to affirm its full expression in our grapes.

Compost (animal origin and grape residue) allows us to work the soil further by providing the earth with all the microorganisms it needs. This technique helps to energize the precious microbiota of our soils.

This is why we prepare our own compost in order to provide better traceability of what we amend in the vines.
