Champagne De Sloovere-Pienne

Champagne Ardenne, France

The De Sloovere-Pienne Champagne estate stands as a proud testament to the savoir-faire passed down through five generations. Situated on the enchanting heights of the Côteaux Sud d’Epernay, the Ardre Valley, the Côte des Blancs, and the Marne Valley, the estate embraces the distinctive terroir of the Champagne region.

At De Sloovere-Pienne, the cuvées are meticulously crafted, striking a delicate balance between tradition and modernity. The estate’s 8-hectare vineyard, cultivated using sustainable viticulture practices, provides the cornerstone for their exceptional Champagnes. Daring to blend the three classic Champagne grape varieties—Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay—their wines possess a nuanced equilibrium and a notable structure.

The De Sloovere-Pienne story is one of collaboration and shared vision within the family. Chantal and Émeline De Sloovere, an exceptional mother-daughter team, work tirelessly to emphasize the quality and diversity of their Champagnes. Committed to upholding traditions while embracing innovation, they have elevated the art of Champagne production to new heights.

Émeline, who assumed stewardship of the estate from her grandfather Alain Pienne in 2015, brings a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective to the family legacy. Her extensive travels to other vineyards have enriched her knowledge and inspired innovative practices. With an unwavering commitment to authenticity, Émeline ferments different terroirs separately using indigenous yeasts and avoids cold stabilization or filtration. This meticulous approach ensures that each cuvée embodies the purest expression of the Champagne terroir, relying exclusively on first-press juices.

The roots of De Sloovere-Pienne run deep, both in terms of heritage and geography. Émeline grew up on the farm where her family still resides—a historic site dating back to the 12th century. Originally serving as a reserve for a neighboring fortress, the farm was transformed into a vineyard in the late 19th century, and it remains the heart of their winemaking operations.

In a momentous stride forward, the De Sloovere family opened a restaurant on the estate in July 2020. The restaurant showcases the finest produce sourced directly from their organic garden, which not only delights guests but also contributes to the biodiversity of the terroir.

Environmental sustainability lies at the core of De Sloovere-Pienne’s philosophy. The estate has embarked on an ambitious trajectory of ecological transition, aiming to reduce chemical usage and restore biodiversity. Since 2016, no herbicides or pesticides have been employed in the vineyard, allowing nature to flourish and the grapes to embody the true essence of Champagne.

Émeline’s dedication and talent have garnered recognition through the prestigious 2019 Young Talents of Champagne award. This esteemed accolade attests to her unwavering commitment to crafting exceptional Champagnes and heralds a bright future for the estate.

Champagne De Sloovere-Pienne shines as a beacon of youth, character, modernity, and dynamism. With an unwavering focus on quality and an unrelenting drive for innovation, they are poised to establish themselves as a renowned vineyard in the Champagne region. Each bottle of their Champagne encapsulates the culmination of generations of expertise, honoring tradition while pushing boundaries to create truly extraordinary and unforgettable experiences.
