The heart and soul of Champagne Dauby goes back to the meeting of Thérèse et Guy Dauby who shared a common love for the land and for wine.
They had inherited a few plots of vines from their parents and little by little, and not without a back-breaking amount of work, they gradually put together a small estate on some of the best hillsides in and around the villages of Aÿ and Mutigny. In 1956 the real adventure began: they purchased a few small oak barrels and made the first few bottles of Champagne under their own name.
The elegance of Chardonnay provides the perfect balance in this predominantly Pinot Noir blend which, more than any other, represents the House of Dauby. This traditional champagne comes from their Premier Cru vineyards in Mutigny and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. It takes its name from the reserve wines aged in large oak barrels and, with its range of fruity and mineral flavours, it makes the perfect glass for all the occasions.
