The Champlat-et-Boujacourt commune unsurprisingly consists of the two neigbouring villages Champlat and Boujacourt, located respectively southeast and northwest of the mid-point of the commune. Champlat-et-Boujacourt is located between the right bank of the Marne river and the Montagne de Reims hill, but the UMC (which I follow with respect to the areas and sub-regions) counts it to the area Vallée de la Marne Rive Droite rather than to the area Vesle et Ardre.
The Champlat-et-Boujacourt commune covers 636 hectares and has 160 inhabitants (as of 2012).
The current vineyard surface in the Champlat-et-Boujacourt commune is 3.5 hectares (8.6 acres). There are 3.4 ha Pinot Meunier (98.5%) and about 0.05 ha Chardonnay (1.5%). Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. In 1997, the vineyard surface was 4 ha after rounding-off. There are 12 vineyard owners (exploitants) in the commune.
The producer status NM = négociant-manipulant means that purchased grapes can be included in the Champagnes. NM producers can be anything from small producers that supplement their own grapes with some that they buy in, to large Champagne houses that primarily rely on purchased grapes.
- Didier Chopin (NM), has just under 8 ha of vineyards and an annual production of 300 000 bottles. Their first own bottles were produced in 1989 and launched in 1992.
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.
- Thierry Grandin (RC), a member of the L’Entraide cooperative in La Neuville-aux-Larris.
