Champagne Ulysse Collin is a relatively small producer known for its dedication to traditional and artisanal winemaking methods, resulting in high-quality and expressive Champagnes.
Olivier Collin founded the estate, often referred to as Ulysse Collin. Olivier Collin took over his family’s vineyards and began producing Champagne under the Ulysse Collin label in 2004. With a deep commitment to crafting terroir-driven champagnes, the winery focuses on organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyard, aiming to express the unique characteristics of their vineyard sites in their wines.
The vineyards are located in the Côte des Blancs subregion of Champagne, which is renowned for its Chardonnay grape production. The yield is quite limited compared to larger houses, allowing for meticulous attention to detail and a focus on quality over quantity.
Ulysse Collin is known for its “lieu-dit” (single-vineyard) champagnes, which highlight the specific characteristics of individual vineyard plots. The wines often have a unique identity and showcase the diversity of the Côte des Blancs terroir.
Some of the well-known cuvées produced by Ulysse Collin include “Les Maillons,” “Les Enfers,” “Les Pierrières,” and “Les Roises,” among others.
