Comment: some of the villages to the west on the map are not included in the list above, since they are outside the appellation and therefore will not be profiled.
Nanteuil-sur-Marne is located on the right bank of the Marne river, which means to the north of the river. 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 Nanteuil-sur-Marne commune covers 125 hectares and has 442 inhabitants (as of 2016), referred to as Nanteuillais and Nanteuillaises.
The vineyards in Nanteuil-sur-Marne are located to the north and northeast of the village and mostly consist of south- to southeast-facing slopes. Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay are the most common grape varieties.
The current vineyard surface in the Nanteuil-sur-Marne commune is 38.9 hectares (96.1 acres). There are 16.9 ha Pinot Meunier (43.4%), 14.9 ha Chardonnay (38.3%), 6.6 ha Pinot Noir (17.0%), and 0.5 ha other grape varieties (1.3%), which presumably is mostly Pinot Gris. Current information from CIVC as of 2019, refers to the situation a few years earlier. In 1997, the vineyard surface was 23 ha. There is 1 vineyard owner (exploitant) in the commune.
I have not found any Champagne producers which have their seat in Nanteuil-sur-Marne.
