Situated in Pierry, a village in "Côte des Blancs" classified 1st growth in Champagne, Mandois owns a 35 hectares' vineyard. The slopes of Epernay, the Côte des Blancs, together with the region around Sézanne constitute the major part of its vineyards spread amongst 12 different villages. Grapes come from famous villages and prestigious terroirs such as Chouilly, Vertus, Pierry and Epernay. Mandois's vineyard is made up of 70% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir.
Ploughing the soil
After many years experimenting in the Clos, Claude Mandois adopted the method of ploughing the soil in every other row of vines. In 2010, he decided to use this alternative method in all his vineyards. The results have been a deeper rooting of the vine and a natural expression of the terroir. To date Mandois Champagne is the only Champagne House to use this pioneering method.
