De Watère Champagne



De Watère Champagne is elaborated in the Premier Cru (93%) village of Avenay Val d’Or, 5km east of Aÿ in the Vallée de la Marne. The grapes used are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. At the vigneron’s, everything is done manually or using traditional machinery. From the picking of the grapes, over the rattling of the bottles to the application of the labels. To plow the vineyard, horses are used as to not compress the ground too much, allowing the roots of the vines to develop to their full potential. Of course, no pesticides are used and rose bushes serve as indicators for potential disease in the vineyard.

When harvest comes, the grapes are picked by hand and transported to the vigneron’s on horse drawn carriages. After pressing, the unlabeled bottles are stored in the caves for development for normally just under six years until they are released.

Only a mere 22,500 bottles of De Watère Champagne are produced annually, equally divided between the Brut Blanc and the Brut Rosé. Solely, 20,000 of those are released to the market. The remaining 2,500 bottles are being held by and for the family De Watère.

The History behind the Crowned Champagne

Family legend was the inspiration for the creation of this extraordinary champagne. The origins of the family De Watère are just as long-reaching as those of champagne itself. It all began in 1066, when a Norman called Guillaume de Watère relocated to England, following in the army of William the Conqueror. There, Guillaume was recorded in the Doomsday Book in 1086 and this marks the official beginning of the family ‘de Watère’ in England. Guillaume de la Watère, is also named in the ’Feet for Fines of Cambridge’ in 1245. When 2011 approached, marking 925 years of unbroken family tradition, the eldest son of the current generation – Martin A. de Watère – decided to create something that would honor the family’s origin and long lasting history, celebrating the eternal solidarity at the same time. He found champagne to symbolise the French origin and achieved the celebratory purpose. Gold as a symbol of imperishability plays a role as important as the pure, impenetrable diamond. The coin under the bottle stands for the family and their strength of unity and is embossed with elements from the family’s emblem. Two griffons hold the diamond high up while being eternal guardians of its impenetrability. The diamond symbolizes the heart and solidarity of the family. The combination of history and exclusive champagne quality is second to none.

De Watère Cuvée Premier Cru Brut Blanc

- Champagne with Crisp Elegance -

The ‘De Watère Cuvée 1er Cru Brut Blanc’ is composed of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, giving it the perfect combination of maturity and freshness. Nuances of cinnamon and exotic fruit elegantly support the diversity of aromas. It pleases the eye with a wonderfully vivid foam composition while bearing a gold, light luminescent colour. This fine champagne distinguishes itself by its balanced and decent composition. It serves excellently as an aperitif. However, it will also prove itself during the course of a summerly meal up to desert. Each bottle bears a plaque made of 24 carat gold on top of the cork.

De Watère Cuvée Premier Cru Brut Rosé

- Champagne with Sultry Finesse -

The ‘De Watère Cuvée 1er Cru Brut Rosé’ is composed of 100% Pinot Noir, giving it a fruity yet discreet character. The combination of a vivid foam composition and profound rosé colour, perfectly induces the vivid taste of fresh berries, mainly raspberries and blackberries. The connoisseur finds an ideal companion for an aperitif or desert in this saignée Rosé. The rarely exercised ‘saignée’ method leaves the grapes to bleed out into the fresh juice, for the Rosé to reach its ideal colour and aromas. Creating a ‘saignée’ champagne is rather time consuming (someone has to constantly watch the grape juice) and demands a high level of skill and experience from the vigneron. Therefore, it is scarcely found; even more so when creating a Rosé de Noir, as at De Watère’s. Each bottle bears a plaque made of the highest quality chrome on top of the cork.

The ‘Club of 500′ Edition

Both Cuvées, the Brut Blanc and the Brut Rosé, are naturally available without the diamond and the gold coin, too. This edition is called the ‘Club of 500’ Edition in reference to the original number of bottles finished for the family’s 925th anniversary. For the anniversary, a total of 500 bottles were reserved in order to be served and given as a present to every person present.

In between the Co500 Edition and the Diamond Edition, there is, of course, room for personalisation. We have fitted, for example, 9 small diamonds flanking a ruby in the middle. Naturally, bigger diamonds are possible to be set into larger coins as well. Different materials can be combined with different jewels, too. For example, a silver coin with an emerald set in the middle.
