Comment: some of the villages to the south are not included in the list above, since they are outside the appellation and therefore will not be profiled.
Citry is located on the left bank of the Marne river, which means south of the river. The village is sometime called Citry-sur-Marne, but the ”sur-Marne” part is not part of the official name of the commune. It is one of only three Champagne villages in the Seine-et-Marne department and therefore the Île-de-France region, which also includes Paris.
The Citry commune covers 504 hectares and has 900 inhabitants (as of 2016) referred to as Citryats and Citryates.
The vineyards in Citry are located close to the main village, on rather flat land. Pinot Meunier is the most common grape variety.
The current vineyard surface in the Citry commune is 13.9 hectares (34.3 acres). There are 8.7 ha Pinot Meunier (62.6%), 3.1 ha Chardonnay (22.3%), and 2.1 ha Pinot Noir (15.1%). Current information from CIVC as of 2019, refers to the situation a few years earlier. In 1997, the vineyard surface was 8 ha. There are 6 vineyard owners (exploitants) in the commune.
I have not found any Champagne producers which have their seat in Citry.
