History

Since the 17th century, the Baron family owned a vineyard in Charly sur Marne, in the west of the Champagne area. Dolorès Fuenté is the daughter of Spanish immigrants and saw the hard side of live in Spain and at her arrival in France. Gabriel Baron and Dolorès Fuenté met at the local dance hall. At the time, the profession of a winemaker was not very much recognised, so Gabriel pretended to be a postman.

In 1961, at the occasion of his marriage to Dolorès, Gabriel Baron was given 1 ha of vineyards by his father. And in 1967, as a symbol of their union, Gabriel Baron and Dolorès Fuenté founded the house Baron-Fuenté.
The first bottles were produced and sold directly from the house. Since then, the company kept on developing year after year.

In 1983, their daughter Sophie joined Gabriel and Dolorès and starts working with her parents. In 1992, their son Ignace also joined the still growing family house, which owns by then already 13 ha of vineyards in Charly-sur-Marne, at the beautiful river banks of the Marne.

Today, Champagne Baron-Fuenté is the owner of 38 ha of vineyards and the brand Baron-Fuenté is owned by the Baron family.
The house Baron-Fuenté is actually managed by Ignace and Sophie.
Ignace, assisted by his chef de cave Orlando, is in charge of the elaboration of all the champagnes.

Winemaking

Our cuvees are round and fruity thanks to our low temperatures facilities (between 12° and 15° Celsius). There are numerous benefits of these cold temperatures throughout the production process, from the clusters of grapes to the stocking on slats:

  • the Meunier grape variety remains fruity and round,
  • the Champagnes are distinguished by their small bubbles,
  • the fresh and supple expression in the mouth.

Working in the cold is ideally completed by a double-fermentation in the latest generation vats.

All of our bottles then stored on slats for duration of between 3 and 7 years before they are disgorged, bringing the deep and varied aromas to each of our cuvees.

We disgorge each bottle every three months, which ensures fine mousse and light bubbles.

Over more than 50 years, these different phases of production have allowed people in France and in 30 countries to date, to enjoy our Champagnes!
