Champagne Marc Chauvet, Récoltant-Manipulant (RM). Winemaker Champagne since 1529.

Clotilde and Nicolas, complimentary talents

Nicolas, the mind of the grapevine. Clotilde, the mind of the wine. Brother and sister, Nicolas and Clotilde share the same passion for the grapevine and the wine. They use a double competence, Nicolas takes care of the grapevines and Clotilde the wine production. Complimentary, they work together in the elaboration of the champagne Marc Chauvet.

Champagne Creators

Real "creators of Champagne", the champenois winemakers have shaped, for generations, multifaceted champagne. They promote the expression of the terroir, with traditional, environmentally sound agricultural practices for the quality and the environment. Clotilde and Nicolas belong to this family of wine growers. Harvesters Récoltant Manipulant (RM), they have fully mastered their production, from the vine to the grape and the juice to the bottle, through to commercialisation.

Our ancient caves

It is in the freshness of our hand dug cellars that time does his work. Quiet, dark and calmly fresh, they are home to thousands of bottles of Champagne Marc Chauvet, which slowly acquire their full maturity. Vaulted and carved in the chalk, they form a true Cathedral dedicated to champagne. Perfect conditions for ageing millesimes.

Our vines, Nicolas’s kingdom

No quality champagne without quality grapes. Nicolas watches attentively over his vineyard to produce the best grapes possible. Because the grapevine is alive, Nicolas does not over spray the vines, rather, he works with them. Conscious and active in environmental issues throughout the sector, Champagne Marc Chauvet has received (HVE) Hautes Valeurs Environnmentale and (VDC) Viticulture Durable Champenoise certifications. 

Our cuverie - Clotildes kingdom

It is in this immaculate space that Clotilde passionately works her wines and refines her blends purposefully avoiding a malolactic fermentation to preserve freshness in the finished product. Temperature control, cooling systems, to produce a champagne of high quality distinguished by the style and precise balance.

Rilly la Montagne – Our village

The vineyards of Champagne Marc Chauvet are based in Rilly la Montagne, a pretty village located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims. Backed by the forest, classified as Premier Cru, it is one of the oldest wine-producing villages Champenois. With its 1080 inhabitants, it extends 851 hectares, of which 312 hectares are intended for the cultivation of the vine.


Clotilde and Nicolas are highly involved and have enormous respect for the environment. It is one of the most cherished values of Champagne Marc Chauvet.

All our champagnes are certified High Environmental Value (Haute Valeur Environnementale (HVE)) and Durable viticulture in Champagne (Viticulture Durable en Champagne (VDC)) . Nicolas has chosen methods of reasoned culture since 2005.
