Catalan cooper Ernest Cazals moved to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and founded Champagne Cazals in 1897. Today, Cazals is run by fourth generation Delphine Cazals, the first woman in her family to take over the reins.
This relatively unknown estate historically sold grapes to the Grand Marques for their prestige cuvées. However, Delphine bravely changed the direction of production. Now, Cazals produce their own, terroir-driven wines from nine hectares of Côte des Blancs vineyards, centred around the famous Grand Cru Chardonnay capital of Oger.
Their trophy vineyard, Clos Cazals, is the only walled Clos in Oger and is the envy of many across Champagne. This vineyard is farmed sustainably and contains many mature vines. Cazals produces two wines; the Chapelle du Clos from the younger vines, and the Vielles Vignes from the oldest section of the vineyard. These artisanal wines offer a glimpse into this treasured terroir, which is yet to find its value in the market.
