Jeeper was established in 1949 by Armand Goutorbe and purchased by Myriam and Nicolas Dubois in 2009. Shortly after, Michel Reybier became an investing partner and Jeeper Champagne had established its nobility.
Michel Reybier is owner of both the chateaus Cos d’Estournel and Marbuzet. His partnership with Nicolas Dubois in 2013 had enabled the house Jeeper to acquire it’s luster. Their Champagnes have been presented in all the great European trade shows: London Wine Fair, Prowein and Vinitaly, where it won medals and peaked the interest of several wine professionals.
“Everything has been done, Alain Bergeot, Jeeper sales and development manager, explains, “to assure continued existence to this new line of products and make it exclusive. It is presented in a bottle dedicated to the brand, with a very fine neck to limit the wine-oxygen exchanges and give it extra ageing capacity. It has a round and elegant shoulder that highlights the breadth of the wine. The packaging is modern and soigné. The labels display vivid colours, an embossed gold brand and blason, signs of an intrinsic distinction”.
Originally Jeeper’s wine production was at 80% Chardonnay, but now the house’s vineyard has been regrouped to have a balance between, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. The wine is of exceptional quality and the packaging is beautiful. The new associate of Champagne Jeeper is very demanding about this. Nicolas Dubois, known as a great wine grower, sees to it. There is about fifty hectares in operation among the most beautiful plots such as the Montagne de Reims, the Côte des Blancs, the Marne Valley. The house has been HQE-HVE Sustainable Viticulture certified since June 2016, practicing natural grassing and having set a 5-year goal of zero fuel in the vineyard. They have a precise vinification that combines stainless steel vats with oak barrels. They have over 1,200 barrels which make it the 3rd largest barrel cellar within Champagne.
