Charles de Fere

The secret of sparkling wines is the blend, whether they are from Champagne or other regions of France. This is the winemaker’s art. It is the choice he makes that determines what is often referred to as the house style. The style of Charles de Fere is to voluntarily refuse territorial limits, building close partnership relations with growers so that we can select cuvees from Northern vineyards for their freshness and elegance, together with cuvees from Southern vineyards for ripe fruit, body and smoothness. This bold approach adds finesse, structure, and a complex harmony of flavors that makes Charles de Fere what it is today. Jean-Louis Denois is a sixth generation champenoise, from a long established Champagne family. In 1981 he established his own headquarters, Charles de Fere, not far from his family cellar. This property is located in Fere-en Tardenois, twenty miles outside of the Champagne region. Jean-Louis has established remarkable consistency of this product which has provided the impetus for unparalleled growth and acceptance. Charles de Fere is France’s only premium quality, bottle-fermented sparkling wine that uses grapes grown in many different vineyard regions.
