Comment: some of the neighbouring communes to the south (on the opposite bank of the Vesle) are not part of the Champagne appellation and therefore don’t have any village profiles.
Châlons-sur-Vesle is located in the northwestern part of the Champagne region, just northwest of Reims, on the right bank of the Vesle river.
The Châlons-sur-Vesle commune covers 445 hectares and has 181 inhabitants (as of 2012), referred to as châlonnais and châlonnaises.
The vineyards in Châlons-sur-Vesle are located to the northnortheast of the village, and are continuous with those in Chenay. Only Pinot Noir is cultivated on the limited vineyard surface in the commune. Only two villages in the Massif de Saint-Thierry (the other is Chenay, the neighbour of Châlons-sur-Vesle) has more than 50% Pinot Noir in their vineyards.
The current vineyard surface in the Châlons-sur-Vesle commune is 2.1 hectares (5.2 acres), with only Pinot Noir (100%). Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. There are no vineyard owners (exploitants) in the commune, i.e., the owners are located in other communes.
I have not found any Champagne producers which are located in Châlons-sur-Vesle.
