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.
Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers is located to the east of Reims, on the outskirts of the Champagne wine region.
The main village, at the stream Suippe, is Pontfaverger. Moronvilliers is located to the far south of the commune, in the direction of Prosnes, and it is a village which was completely destroyed in World War I. In 1950, the land of Moronvilliers was transferred to the then-commune Pontfaverger and two other communes, and it changed its name to Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers.
There is a German military cemetery in Pontfaverger, where soldiers who fell in World War I are buried.
The Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers commune covers 3152 hectares and has 1731 inhabitants (as of 2014), referred to as Pontfabriciens and Pontfabriciennes.
The vineyards in Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers are located to the northnortheast of the village, on the Mont Saint-Médard hill, which also stretches into the Selles commune. The vineyards are south-facing and are planted to Chardonnay only.
The current vineyard surface in the Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers commune is 10.6 hectares (26.2 acres). There are 10,6 ha Chardonnay (100%). Numbers from CIVC, as of 2013. In 1997, the vineyard surface was 7 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 Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers.
