Champagne Godmé Sabine, Verzenais
Champagne Godmé Sabine was born from the "union" of two families of winegrowers, the Godmé family, from Bouzy and Verzenay, and the Thomas family, from Villers Marmery.
The first traces of commercialization date back to the 1920s.
It is also the year of the marriage of our grandparents, Joseph and Antoinette Godmé. For generation after generation, day after day, the tradition has continued and the brand continues and evolves with the times.
The champagnes of this house, formerly marketed under the brands Godmé Joseph, Godmé Bertrand, Godmé Père and Fils, are today under the name Champagne Godmé Sabine.
The philosophy of the different generations remains the same, namely, respect for the land, the transmission of knowledge, sharing and conviviality.
Today it is as a family that Sabine and Jean-Marie with Marie and Matthieu, their children, work and make all wine and wine decisions.
Since 2006, the vineyard has been put in place that is more respectful of nature: 0 insecticides, tillage, sexual confusion.
At the same time, the means of production in the cellar have been modernized in order to let the terroir and the grape varieties express themselves.
Based on their diversity in the plots of their vineyards, 5.5 hectares spread over three Grand cru villages, Verzenay, Verzy, Beaumont sur Vesle and two Premier cru villages, Villers-Marmery and Montbré, planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Champagne Godmé Sabine produces 8 cuvées in mono-grape varieties or in blending, vintage or not, more or less dosed, vinified in barrels or in vats so that each terroir can express itself and be sublimated.
Ideally located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, the Godmé house overlooks the village of Verzenay. On the strength of this situation, a decision has been taken over the last ten years or so to develop a pleasant reception area. A panoramic terrace to enjoy a glass of champagne in the middle of the vineyards.
The management of the Godmé Sabine vineyard aims to integrate the vines into its environment, a reasoned approach to viticulture is practiced and the Godmé are certified High Environmental Value (HVE). This corresponds to the highest level of an environmental certification system for farms (including wine growers) and allows the recognition of farms engaged in particularly environmentally friendly approaches, while not being "BIO".
HVE certification is based on 4 environmental performance indicators:
Preservation of biodiversity,
The phytosanitary strategy,
Fertilization / fertilizer management,
The management of water resources.
