The story of the House of Sélèque began in 1965, when Henri Sélèque planted his first plots of vines with the help of his father-in-law, Jean Bagnost (then president of the Pierry wine cooperative).
The third generation arrived in 2008 – Jean-Marc joined the estate after studying wine and travelling abroad. He has brought new life and a very personal approach to making Champagne.
Their vineyards currently represent 7.5 hectares of vines across seven villages in the Marne valley and the Côte des Blancs slopes, three of which are classified as Premier Cru (Pierry, Dizy, Vertus). The grape varieties are dominated by Chardonnay (60%), followed by Pinot Meunier (30%) and Pinot Noir (10%).
Jean-Marc ploughs his vineyard to encourage root development and microbial life in the soil. He also believes in preventive measures to combat disease and favour balance and biodiversity. The farming is carried out by a team of five people throughout the year. Jean-Marc is looking for purity, balance and elegance in his champagnes and we certainly think that his wines are full of charm and personality.
