The ROUSSEAUX-DAYE winery embodies these rare family estates which, through their work, have built the "Champagne" myth.
The independence of the family has allowed them to maintain consistency in the development of their Champagne wines with the key words: finesse, balance and elegance.
Each generation has never ceased to propel into modernity a viticultural Art resulting from several centuries of experience, while preserving the best of traditions.
Today Véronique and Vincent take advantage of this family know-how and this Champagne tradition transmitted for 5 generations; and gradually pass it on to their children.
Located in the heart of the Reims mountain, in Verzenay village Grand Cru, the family vineyard benefits from a privileged location, good exposure of its hillsides, light soil and limestone subsoil where the Pinot Noir grape variety is King.
The artisanal dimension of the exploitation with the many plots of vines makes it possible to produce champagnes expressing all the subtlety and the strength of the terroir by bringing their own signature.
Champagne Rousseaux-Daye is a totally independent "récoltant-manipulant", which contributes to the constant quality of its wines.
For several years, concerned about the environment, Véronique and Vincent adhere to sustainable viticulture by limiting the use of pesticides and herbicides, and by promoting natural methods and tillage.
