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 dashed red line is the departmental border between Seine-et-Marne (where Nanteuil-sur-Marne is located) and Aisne.

The village

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.

Vineyards

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.
