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, and green indicates forest. The black-red dashed line is the departemental border between Marne (where Selle is located) and Ardennes.

Comment: some of the communes on the map are not part of the Champagne appellation, and therefore they have no village profiles.

The village

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.

Vineyards

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.

Champagne producers

I haven’t found any Champagne producer which has their seat in Selles.
