Enjoying one of the finest vineyards of Champagne, the Seconde family, direct descendants of Edmond BARNAUT the founder, perpetuates the long history and the knowledge of winemaking transmitted for five generations. The land is located in one of the most famous villages in Champagne: Bouzy is a rare village to be classified Grand Cru. Our vineyard is divided into many parcels scattered on all Bouzy's land, which offers a diversity of character to the wines and permits us to elaborate seven different Champagnes and two Coteau Champenois appellation still wines: the famous Bouzy Rouge and the unique Clos BARNAUT Rose. Almost a century and a half of history shared between a family, a village and a land causes a specific relationship. Thus a philosophy combining tradition and modernity inspires the work every day. A viticulture that uses plant health products only when natural extracts have reached their limit, the use of organic fertilizers, weed between the vine lines, building of a modern cellar with the advantage of natural air conditioning, roofs of cellars producing photovoltaic energy superior to the consumption are some examples of our approach. We are not owners of our estate, we just are the custodians. To transmit this exceptional heritage sustainably, we must respect our environment and the quality of our production.
