THE CHEURLIN NAME
Since 1788, the Cheurlin family has continued the storied tradition of growing and cultivating grapes into only the finest Champagnes. Located in the French Aube, Cheurlin vineyards can be found in the oldest part of the Champagne region. A region known for distinctive, highly sought wines that have caught the attention of Champagne lovers the world over.
Recognized long ago as the source of quality grapes, the large champagne houses have been quietly purchasing grapes from this region. The Aube, whose formation is over 145 million years old and dates back to the Jurassic era, represents 25% of the entire champagne region.
Its soil, a mixture of clay, limestone and fossilized seashell, replicates that of neighboring Chablis. Yet, despite the geological resemblance to Chablis, which makes the most distinctive Chardonnay wines in the world, the Aube is known for its superior Pinot Noir.
This large and increasingly important area of Champagne has been discovered by bubbly lovers and now lays claim to an outsize portion of fascination among Champagne lovers.
In Aube, there is no bragging about the art of blending and no luxury branding, instead, they stake their reputation on the land.
