In 1844, Léopold Dousset left his home town of Couvignon in the Aisne region to settle in Verzenay, a small Grand Cru village in Champagne. Here he set himself up as a distiller, and built a business that would eventually allow his son, Eugène, to purchase several plots of vines. In 1976 Eugène’s son, Louis, took over the family business and focussed entirely on making champagne. Louis’ grandson, Jean-Roch Floquet, took up the reins in 1998. He takes great pride in carrying on the traditional family business, but has also introduced some of the latest technological innovations in wine making.

By focusing our efforts on a few, meticulously selected plots of vines in a limited number of villages we have created a distinctive, contemporary style that relies first and foremost on top quality grapes from top quality vineyards.
