Champagne villages

In August 2014, I started to add profiles of the 319 villages in the Champagne appellation. I upload them as regular blog posts and I described this project in the post Upcoming on this blog: profiles of Champagne villages. A current update can be found in an area (“widget”) on the right-hand side of the blog, a short bit down.

In terms of the 17 areas that the Union des Maisons de Champagne (UMC) use to group the 319 villages into, this is the situation:

I usually don’t upload more than one village profile per day, and I also write area profiles and also other blog posts now and then. This could mean something like late 2017.

Village profile #1 was Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, added 5 Aug 2014.
Village profile #100 was La Neuville-aux-Larris, added 15 May 2015.
Village profile #150 was Cuis, added 24 Nov 2015.
Village profile #200 was Bar-sur-Seine, added 13 Jul 2016.
Village profile #250 was Vindey, added 14 April 2017.

The profiles of the villages can be accessed via the pages for each area that are accessible as “drop-down” subpages to this page, as well as via the alphabetical list (A-V) of all villages.


Google Maps view with all villages in the Champagne appellation. Grand cru villages are in green, premier cru villages in yellow, and autre cru villages in orange. Villages not yet profiled are shown in a lighter hue. (Based on the Swedish versions of the profiles, I’m sometimes a few villages behind in translating them into English.)

Clicking on a village opens a field to the left with a link to the village profile, if there is one.
