Champagne Dumangin J. Fils
Back to producers by region list

The family vineyard is located in Chigny-les-Roses, an historical district classified Premier Cru nestling on the slopes of the Montagne de Reims.
The name Chigny-les-Roses is relatively recent. Emile Loubet, erstwhile President of the Republic, decided in 1902 to ratify the changement of name from Chigny-en-Montagne to Chigny-les-Roses, justified by the presence in the village of a famous rose garden, greatly admired by its many visitors.
Jean Dumangin Champagne has very deep roots, dating back several centuries. The current family represents the eleventh generation. According to our painstaking research it is possible to go back with certainty to Firmin Dumangin – a vine-grower in Ludes, born in 1645 – to find the first traces of the family’s wine-making origins.

It was in the second part of the 17th century that the wine-makers began to produce a white wine called “vin gris”, obtained using an appropriate pressing of black grapes with a colourless flesh. It was also the period when Dom Pérignon, the monk and cellar master at the Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers, discovered how to put the sparkle into wine between 1668 and 1715, along with the art of blending grapes before pressing them.

How I started with Gilles Dumangin
I knew Gilles for long time but we never think about working together. Our commun friend, Christophe Chapillon who produces wines in Spain encouraged us to work together in the USA. We talked about it and it became very natural that we should be working together. I love his champagne because they are as Champagne should be : pure, clean and very elegant.
