Founded in 1966 in Allemant by Gérard Delong, the Delong Marlène Champagne House is now run by two young people who are enthusiastic and passionate about Nature and who produce all the cuvees on the Estate, from harvesting the grapes to dispatching the champagne to your table.
The estate’s vines stretch over 5 ha 30, across 3 villages of the Côteaux Sézannais - Allemant, Broyes and Sézanne. The chalky subsoil and very varied soils in each village, ranging from sand to clay via silt and limestone, are major advantages for growing vines.
With meticulous care the whole year round, Marlène and Damien cultivate the 3 Champagne grape varieties (Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay) on vines that are, on average, 40 years old. Each plot is unique and thus offers great diversity and complexity to the different cuvees in the range.
Wine growers and producers from father to daughter and proud of their roots, they are Independent Winegrowers exercising their freedom to tend their vines as they see fit whilst respecting local Champagne traditions.
