History

Champagne Paul Goerg belongs to one of the few winegrower maison in Champagne. It was founded back in 1950 when 8 families of winegrowers from Vertus decided to join forces and to share together their vineyard.

Today, representatives from families Collard, Faucheret, Férat, Rogué, Grégoire, Doquet, Gallois and Pougeoise still have the same passion for Champagne and are actively present at the company’s board.

Vineyards

Located in Vertus, in the heart of the famous Côte des Blancs, Paul Goerg ‘s DNA is chardonnay. Its unique  120 hectares vineyard is indeed almost exclusively planted with this varietal, symbol of finesse and elegance.

Our vineyard ensures our Champagne a constant supply in very high quality grapes. Chardonnay ‘s elegance and finesse is the prestigious signature of Champagne Paul Goerg.

Winemaking

Champagne Paul Goerg, based in  Vertus ,  decided 3 years ago to implement plot by plot selection on its vineyard mostly planted with chardonnay. More than 15 hectares like “La Croix Saint-Ladre », « les Faucherets » or « le Pas de Cheval » are involved into this special winemaking and only 35 years old and older vines are included in this program. « We have carefully selected old vines form around 15 places. As we get closer to the harvest, we define with wine growers involved a special plan for harvesting. This plan is mainly based on the result of grape tastings over the last 2 weeks before harvest. It is this tasting, based on some very accurate criteria, that will determine harvest day for each plot. Our purpose is to raise awarness amongst our winegrowers of the importance of perfect maturity.» explains Johan Jarry, chef de cave. We then proceed to winemaking into special small tanks.

 

When we tasted the still wines earlier this year (wines that will then be blended and bottled for the prise de mousse) winemakers have once again noted the very high quality of the juices from this special selection. « We have very different wines. Aromatic pallet varies widely according to the terroir, and we have analysed that even plots a few meters away from each other produce very different wines. A vine nearby the forest does not have same qualities as the one in the plain. This is a fantastic tool to work our blendings even more precisely.» says Damien Cambres, chef de cave.

Inside information

Chardonnay, that is worth 85% of our vineyard, is the most rare and sought after varietal in Champagne. Indeed, because it is maturing slowly, it is particularly fit for a long ageing. When young, its delicacy shows floral and mineral notes. It is also characterized by freshness and vivacity. As it ages, it will become more complex and round.

Champagne Paul Goerg, mostly made from chardonnay, benefit from ageing way beyond legal requirements (minimum 4 years for non vintage and 8 years for vintages) and low dosage. In this way, they express chardonnay’s finesse, elegance and complexity.
