Champagne Yann Alexandre Brand Overview & Buy Champagnes Same Day Delivery


Yann can trace his ancestry in the region back to 1690. Desire Alexandre, Yann's great-grandfather, vinified still wines and sold them to the big champagne houses. In 1933, Marcel, Yann's grandfather, and his brother, Gaston, decided to keep the still wines and in 1966, Yann's father, Yves, started an eponymous label. Yann follows very much in this tradition, albeit with impressive education to back it up. After studying agronomics, viticulture, and oenology in Beaune, Rouffach, and Avize. In 1999, he returned to Courmas. Meanwhile, in 1995, he had met Severine, who was then working in a different field. As Yann says, I have been sharing my passion for wine with her ever since.

This 180-inhabitant village, 10 km (6 miles) southwest from Reims, takes its place within the Montagne de Reims, a sweep of low plateau, much of it forested, with vines covering its gentle slopes. Courmas belongs to the Petite Montagne, separated from the Grand Montagne by a main north-south road, the name a reference to the rather lower elevation of the vineyards here. The calcareous clay and stony-flinty soils tend to be shallow and well draining. In Courmas, Yann has 14 parcels, predominantly planted to meunier. These are matched by an equal number scattered to the north in Bouilly, in the 1er Cru villages Villedommange, Coulommes de Montagnes, and Vrigny, and in the sandier soils of Chenay and Merfy in the Massif de Saint Thierry and, to the south, in the stony, calcareous earth of Marfaux and, down in the Vitryat, St.-Lumier-en-Champagne. These sites have been selected for their advantageous "late climate" as Yann calls it, and their soils, both of which serve to retain acidity and freshness in the wines.
