This family-run business in Damery is successfully independent and owns vines in the Champagne region’s highest-rated “crus”. The house of Jean-Noël Haton Champagne was founded in 1928. Today Jean-Noël Haton and his son Sébastien create Champagne according to traditional methods such as living in harmony with the soil, seeking maturity and vinifying plots separately. The mastery of blending is essential among the Haton family and so is the time. They patiently allow for aromas to settle in and blossom and they dedicate time to let the wines mature, in this way mastering the aging. Today the Haton family is part of the top 30 producers of Champagne.
Pinot Meunier varietal red wine is often lighter in color than Pinot Noir, but its acidity are little bit higher. It can taste of ripe blueberries, candys, sometimes with light smoky hints. Mostly, this grape is used for sparkling wine production.
The Champagne region combines specific climate, soil, and topography conditions that form a unique terroir currently used by approx. 15 000 vine-growers and 300 wine houses. The region has 4 sub-regions - Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, Vallée de la Marne, and Côte des Bar. Each provides customers with a different style of sparkling wine. The dominant grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which are mainly used in Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne, while Chardonnay shows excellent results in Côte des Blancs. The region is even more appealing because of the so-called "Growe's Champagne" wines, the production of which is overseen by one family from start to finish - they grow and press grapes, make wine, and bottle it in the territory of one wine house. This gives the wine a true charm, aura, and unique flavor.
