Champagne Le Mesnil

About the producer

This cooperative set up in 1937 is situated in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger and has over 500 members and 305ha under its ownership. Champagne Le Mesnil is run by winemaker Gilles Marguet and this is certainly where very good quality champagnes are produced at a very reasonable price. Primarily focused on Chardonnay, they also make a small quantity of Rosé . Their prestige cuvée benefits from 35-year-old vines (and older) on south facing slopes, but their non-vintage Brut has an average vine age of 30 years and has south-east facing vineyards.
  • Sustainable
Vine density is around 7500 vines per hectare and yields are restricted by pruning each cane back to four to five buds. Focus is very much on producing good quality champagnes and the same level of attention to detail is applied, despite its size. Although not organic, their Lutte Raisonnée approach means that they do minimal spraying and only when necessary. The cooperative’s main focus is selling their ‘vins clairs’ to the big champagne houses (Moët and Laurent-Perrier for instance).


100% of the vineyards are ranked as Grand Cru. Found in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, east-facing, Chardonnay "Blanc de Blancs" focused, grown over chalk.


Modern cellar, aged on the lees for a minimum of three years, matured in the cooperative’s chalk cellars. Following release, non-vintage wines can be cellared for three to five years and vintage wines for up to 20 years depending on the vintage.
