About the winery
The Bauchet family has always sought to encourage its champagnes to attain their fullest, purest expression. Vine growers at heart, they initially concentrated on developing their vineyards, but it wasn't long before they were convinced of the need for their own pressing equipment and vat hall. Along with their father, Raphaël, Gérard and Roland BAUCHET formed the basis of the original Clos Babot production entity. Raphaël BAUCHET left the firm in 1992 and Félicien BAUCHET (father) died in 1997. Until 2010, Gérard and Roland BAUCHET were the only shareholders in the 'Société Clos Babot' non-trading company, each of them owning 50% of its capital. Now the fourth generation has taken over the management of the estate. Bruno BAUCHET who had already been part of the team for years, was joined by Florence LABELLE, sister in law of the oenologist Bruno CHARLEMAGNE.
