History

The Maison Gamet is a story of back & forth between two villages from Champagne Region: Mardeuil & Fleury-la-Rivière. François Gamet, native of Fleury-la-Rivière comes down of his village to join and helping his grand-mother Victoire out, on the farm located in Mardeuil. Philippe, the son of François, born & raised in Mardeuil within the farm, will then meet Fabienne, his future wife, on the lands of Fleury-la-Rivière; A small village strewn on the heights of the Marne Valley, where the heritage of millions years still reveals the past within sandy soils, where you can find again shells between two vines.

Fabienne Heucq of her maiden name, is also born within a winegrower family. Her father Robert Heucq was a beloved man and a winemaker, who has also contributed to the growth of the Champagne Region, especially in the development of Fleury-la-Rivière, as he was part of the cooperative founder.

Married in 1992, Fabienne & Philippe have linked their know-how and their legacies to finally found their own domain. Today joined by their children, Jean-François, oenologist and Marianne, a young entrepreneure, the Maison Gamet is at the crossroads of the generations.

Owner of a winery and a farm, the Maison Gamet aims today a new dynamism where the savoir-faire of the land is the new focus. From Champagne to the development of mouth products, many projects are on the way. We won’t give any further details, but stay tuned!

Artisan & Winegrower in Champagne and also ‘Récoltant-Manipulant’, the Maison Gamet is proud of its heritage and its history. Beginning with the tenacity of the grandmother of François Gamet, Victoire Garnier has contributed to improving the growth of small winegrowers after the Second World War by burnishing the know-how of the artisans in Champagne. Followed by two passionate grandfathers, François Gamet and Robert Heucq two figures of the wealth enrichment of the current Maison Gamet.

François, Philippe & Jean-François - Grandfather, father and son - are sharing today the same ‘savoir-faire’, at the same time, but with a different approach: one with nostalgia, the second with wisdom and Jean-François with ambition, accompanied by his sister, Marianne, the thinking head of the family.

The know-how of a good winemaker does not stop only with the elaboration of the wine, but the passion to transmit the art of working and to preserve its inheritance

Vineyards

Located in the Marne Valley, our vineyard is located on each bank of the river «La Marne». In this part of the Champagne Region, the soils are mainly formed with clay & limestone, where we also find sandy soils, notably in Fleury-la-Rivière. This typoe of soils are offering singular minerality and a creamy finish.

Our vines are 25 to 50 years old, and today, respectful of our environment, we are working our vineyard in a sustainable viticulture, guaranteed by the certification with ‘High Environmental Value’.

Salon Oenothèque 1961 / 99 points / If I was close to crying in disappointment over the 66' on the Tidelius tasting, the tears really came in the next flight when this bottle disgorged at the same time and with exactly the same low dosage was so lovely that the emotions overflowed. In fact, this wonderfully youthful champagne is the bottle that most reminded me of the world's best wine 1928 Pol Roger Grauves. Here was the same unlikely contrast between youthfulness and nicely mature notes. The scent is so unreal with its euphoric pheromone-like perfume uplifted by linden, geranium, lily of the valley, acacia, ginger, fresh tarragon, mint, lime peel and Sorrento lemon. Glass-clear brilliance and laser-sharp sharpness and precision. Caressing with faint undertones of vanilla, brioche and roasting. Pure flint mineral finesse and swirling little pearl necklace bubbles that dance ballet in the palate. What is missing in relation to 28' Grauves is a well thickened oiliness that may come in twenty years or so. Imagine that a 51-year-old can personify snowmelt, spring winter and the rebirth of life.
