Neighbouring villages in the Champagne appellation
Comment: some of the communes on the map are not part of the Champagne appellation, and therefore they have no village profiles.
Selles is located to the east of Reims, on the outskirts of the Champagne wine region.
The Selles commune covers 1134 hectares and has 391 inhabitants (as of 2014), referred to as Sellois and Selloises.
The vineyards in Selles are located to the northeast of the village, on the Mont Saint-Médard hill, in a block that stretches across the border to Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers. The vineyards are south-facing and are dominated by Pinot Meunier.
The current vineyard surface in the Selles commune is 10.0 hectares (24.7 acres). There are 9,4 ha Pinot Meunier (94%) och 0,6 ha Chardonnay (6%). Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. In 1997, the vineyard surface was 8 ha. There is one vineyard owner (exploitant) in the commune, which seems to be Moët & Chandon.
I haven’t found any Champagne producer which has their seat in Selles.
