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. Since I have “used up” most of the most well-known and traditionally interesting villages early on, I will probably want to increase the proportion of other blog posts later on, so close to three  years may be a realistic forecast. This would mean something like early 2017.

Village profile #100 was La Neuville-aux-Larris, added 15 May 2015.

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.
