Didier and Karine Chopin are one of a new breed of artisan Champagne producers who have started to produce Champagnes that exceed the quality of their better known and bigger neighbours.
Based in the Marne Valley Didier and Karine bottled their first Champagne in 1989, made from grapes grown on Karine’s family’s estate. Today they have an estate of their own and each year they acquire another parcel and now have a total of 3 hectares and produce almost 200,000 bottles.
A subtle effervescence. Its nose gives lots of olfactory sensations (white flowers). In the mouth, fine and smooth, with subtle aromas of dried fruits, glides on a touch of toasted brioche. It is a twinkling combination of freshness and elegance.

Small, independent and a real family affair… the kind of people you want to be making your champagne!
