Champagne du Rédempteur
Now, a bit about their fascinating history. In 1911, the founder of the domain, Edmond Dubois was nicknamed “Le Rédempteur"(The Redeemer) of Champagne by his fellow winegrowers. At the start of the 20th century, the economic situation of Champagne winegrowers was difficult:
• The vineyard has been ravaged by a disease which destroys the vines: phylloxera.
• The 1910 harvest was catastrophic.
However, at this time, the most terrible thing to face is the lack of regulation! No law, no "Appellation contrôlée" exists to protect wines from Champagne. To prevent other wines from taking the name of Champagne, the Champagne winegrowers are revolting. During these events of 1911, Edmond DUBOIS defended the profession and the Champenoise tradition, it is thanks to this that his entourage nicknamed him "Le Rédempteur". Then comes the First World War; in 1918, Venteuil, is completely destroyed. These events will delay the passage of the regulated law in 1927, which since then strictly protects the Wine of Champagne, still to this day.
