MARZILLY ESTATE

Founded in 2012, Domaine de Marzilly is located in the immediate vicinity of Hermonville, in the Massif de Saint-Thierry, the northernmost region of Champagne. It is in this place conducive to the cultivation of vines that Champagne Ullens has its origin.

"For our parcel vintages, we use an old 4000 kg Coquard Champagne press, fully restored in 2018, in keeping with tradition.Our cellar tells the extraordinary adventure of a man driven by his passion. In front of these oak barrels sheltered by the old stone, we must let the alchemy take place, and know how to wait for the right moment to finally be able to savour the taste of the new vintage. 

The transmission of traditional know-how is one of the core values of the Marzilly Estate. Also, for our parcel vintages, the stirring is done by hand, following a rigorous process that lasts over several weeks.Champagne Ullens' parcel vintages are exclusively vinified in oak barrels.Out of passion and respect for this historical material, we created our own barrels, made from the trees of our park. 

To stimulate and protect biodiversity on our land, we have reintroduced French rustic black bees, adapted to local ecosystems. Every year, we see an increase in their population in the hives of the Domain. For us, this is the best proof of their well-being!"
