J. Dumangin and Fils takes advantage of the Premier Cru fruits of Chigny-les-Roses and distills their juices into some of the classic spirits rarely found outside of the region. The Dumangin family have been growers in the 1er Cru village of Chigny-les-Roses since the early 1900’s and their family can be traced back to working in the vineyards to the 1650’s. The installations for pressing and making the wines have been awarded the quality label by the CIVC. His press of 2000Kg combines modernism and tradition and it is one of only two made of this type in the world. It crushes the grapes ever so delicately, with less pressure and more respect for the grape, adhering to the family philosophy of never “stressing” the grapes at any point in the production process. Further, J. Dumangin is one of the few producers in Champagne who utilizes enamel tanks in which the porosity maintains a signature yeast component cuvee after cuvee. Jacky Dumangin has more than 5.2 hectares in the prestigious Montagne de Reims and is considered a classic recoltant-manipulant (grower producer) who carefully controls every aspect of production, from picking to bottling, to hand riddling.
