An Introduction to Champagne BARON-FUENTE
The BARON family has owned and cultivated lands in Champagne since the 17th century.
Upon his marriage in 1961 to Dolores Fuenté, Gabriel BARON was given 1 hectare of vineyard by his father. In 1967, as a symbol of their union, Gabriel Baron and Dolores Fuenté named their brand new company: “Champagne Baron-Fuenté.” The first bottles were produced and marketed directly to private customers and to local restaurants.
Today, The Baron Fuenté family owns 38 hectares of vineyards near the village of Charly-sur-Marne, on the western side of the Marne river valley. The yearly production is 1.5 million bottles with 4 million bottles maturing in our cellars at all times.
The style of our champagne is dominated by Pinot Meunier, bringing fruit and delicacy to the cuvees. Smaller proportions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir bring finesse and strength to the blend.
