Good palate, this is a pulpy Champagne with a clear presence of Mirabelle offering a long finish. It is a jovial wine, accompanying perfectly white meat dishes.

History of the vineyard!

The Champagne Gaston Cheq is produced by group of winemakers – cooperative “Côteaux du Landion” who decided to join forces and develop their own wine as a tribute to a local hero, Mr. Gaston Cheq (1866-1937), a brave man who was heading the revolt of the winemakers in the Aube county in 1911.

He was fighting for the right to Champagne Appellation in the Aube county, which the Government had revoked at that time, forgetting that Troyes was not less than the historical capital of the province of Champagne.

Gaston Cheq led this action with all his heart and the cooperative “Côteaux du Landion” chose to emerge from the shadows of time, this name and character "GASTON CHEQ" who the winemakers in Aube must never forget.
