Arteis might just be the best Champagne you have never heard of. This boutique producer is making some truly outstanding wine. These wines are powerful yet elegant, with zesty citrus and green apple flavours, along with hints of almonds and brioche. It’s a brilliant bottle of bubbly.
Artéis & Co, with a focus on high-quality, artisanal, vintage champagne, is the brainchild of Chef de Cave Fabien Gay (who previously worked at Perrier-Jouët and Mumm) and Jean-Philippe Diot, a grower based in Vinay. Building on their solid experience and knowledge they wanted to build a project that celebrates expression and craftsmanship, rather than being bound by a house style. They aim to produce world-class champagnes that rival those of the most prestigious houses, but with a fresher take for a fraction of the price.
