The Genet family has been in the village of Chouilly for hundreds of years.  The production of Champagne in this Grand Cru village has been the family’s principle activity for over 100 years. Originally, the Genet family produced their wine under a single Genet name.  As has happened in many a wine-making family,  a separation occurred between brothers Claude and Michel Genet in the early 1960s. The result was two premier estates with the same last name located directly across the street from one another! Luckily for us, Claude and Michel’s sons have been able to look past any differences their fathers may have had and have mended the family tree…how else do you think we were allowed to work with both estates?!

 

Today, Michel’s two sons, Vincent and Antoine run their 17 hectare estate, from which they produce five Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagnes, a Rosé and a Blanc de Noirs.  The current cellar was formerly a major production facility for Möet & Chandon, which means space for expansion is not lacking!
