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, which has owners with the surname Perignon.
  • Auguste Huiban (RM), run by Isabelle and Eric Ammeux since 1991. See also Paul Augustin below.
  • Paul Augustin (RM) belongs together with Auguste Huiban above. The Champagnes consist partly or entirely of 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.
