Pinot Meunier / Pinot Noir

Marne, France

Just after World War I, many small growers decided to begin their own companies, bottling their own Champagnes. Victoire Garnier and Berthe Heucq were two such women. This is the story of two families, from the right and left bank of the Marne, coming together.

The Garnier family were farmers originally on the left bank of the Marne, bottling just 800 bottles of Champagne each year. In the 1950s, François Gamet, grandson of Victoire Garnier, came back to the estate and began to expand, planting more land and bottling more champagne.  While François Gamet was expanding in Mardeuil, across the Marne, Berthe Heucq’s grandson Robert was growing his family’s holdings in Fleury-la-Rivière, bottling his own wines and tending vines on the right bank of the Marne. In 1993, the Fabienne Heucq, Robert’s daughter and Philippe, the son of François Gamet met and fell in love. Since 2018, the estate has been led by their daughter and fourth-generation Marianne, Champagne Gamet is a grower-producer, with vineyards in eight hectares in three villages – Mardeuil on the left bank and Fleury-la-Rivière and Damery on the right bank.
