The village

Jonquery is located on the right bank of the Marne river, which means north of the river. The village is located in a side valley along the stream Ru de Jonquery.

The Jonquery commune covers 434 hectares and has 118 inhabitants (as of 2014).

Vineyards

The vineyards in Jonquery are located southwest of the village in a block continuous with the vineyards in the neighbouring commune, Olizy. Those in Jonquery consist of mild eastnortheast- to south-facing slopes with Pinot Meunier as the dominating grape variety.

The current vineyard surface in the Jonquery commune is 42.2 hectares (104.3 acres). There are 32.7 ha Pinot Meunier (77.5%), 6.0 ha Pinot Noir (14.2%), and 3.5 ha Chardonnay (8.3%). Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. In 1997, the vineyard surface was also 43 ha. There are 34 vineyard owners (exploitants) in the commune.

Single vineyard sites

Single vineyard sites in Jonquery include the following, among others:

  • Le Clos Sainte Corneille, a south- to southeast-facing site on the border to the vineyards of Romigny (and therefore close to Olizy). This single vineyard site continues across the border into Romigny, under the same name. The part on Jonquery is located in the upper half of the slope.

Champagne producers

Champagne growers

Producer status is indicated where known: RM = récoltant-manipulant, or grower-producers. RC = récoltant-coopérateur, growers that are cooperative members but sell Champagnes under their own name.

  • Gaëtane (RC, Facebook page), which has owners with the surname Perignon.
  • Auguste Huiban (RM, Facebook page), run by Isabelle and Eric Ammeux since 1991. Some of the Champagnes are sold under the name Paul Augustin. Those Champagnes are entirely or partly produced using grapes from vineyards in Fontaine-sur-Aÿ that are owned since 2005, which led to this brand being added, named for the two sons Paul-Louis and Auguste. The Paul Augustin range includes a vintage Champagne.
  • Poudras-Thibaut (RM)
