The map is linked from Wikimedia Commons, and the geographical information originates from OpenStreetMap. The dotted white area corresponds to the vineyards, light yellow is other open terrain, orange is built-up areas, green indicates forest, and blue/purple is water and wetland.


Google Maps view with all the villages in the Val du Petit Morin area highlighted. Étoges, the single premier cru village of the area, is in yellow and other villages, including Mondement-Montgivroux, in orange.

Comment 1: some of the communes on the map are not part of the Champagne appellation and therefore don’t have any village profiles.

The village

Mondement-Montgivroux is located south of Le Petit Morin, the river that has lended its name to the area.

The two-part name is the result of Montgivroux being merged into Mondement in 1845.

The Mondement-Montgivroux commune covers 737 hectares and has 41 inhabitants (as of 2013) referred to as Mondementais and Mondementaises.

Located in the commune is Monument national de la Victoire de la Marne, commemorating the first Marne battle in September 1914, during World War I.

Vineyards

The vineyards in Mondement-Montgivroux are located in a block just north of the village and consist of mild slopes. Pinot Meunier is the most common grape variety.

The current vineyard surface in the Mondement-Montgivroux commune is 6.7 hectares (16.6 acres). There are 3.8 ha Pinot Meunier (56.7%), 2.0 ha Pinot Noir (29.9%), and 0.9 ha Chardonnay (13.4%). Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. In 1997, the vineyard surface was 7 ha. There are 2 vineyard owners (exploitants) in the commune.
