Producer

  • Charles Dufour

    At 28, Charles Dufour is young for a winemaker, but especially so in the traditional region of Champagne. This hasn’t stopped him from quickly and aptly taking over from his father Yves and producing some rather impressive results. He started by converting the vineyards to organic viticulture and simplifying cellar work. Organically grown grapes.
