a workshop of creation
Buried 20 metres deep, this is the ideal environment for the conservation and aging of precious bottles, providing darkness, constant temperature and stable humidity levels.
A centuries-old laboratory that transforms every year into a workshop of creation.
Under ‘Coronation City’
It was in 1880 when Henri Abelé, an ambitious and visionary young man, expanded his business in the heart of Reims, the ‘Coronation City’.
Located at 50 Rue de Sillery, the new address conceals an invaluable treasure. Two kilometres of chalk cellars, dug by hand in the raw rock and limestone.
Plunged into darkness, this underground labyrinth consists of thirty galleries all connected by a long corridor.
Foundation stone of the Abelé 1757 style, this natural setting is home to the wines from their creation throughout their long maturation. Months, years, even decades are essential for the magic to work.
Slowly, the wines are adorned with fine and light bubbles. Resting in their alcoves, they gain in elegance, softness and flavour. A confidential artisanal signature that Nature and Man have offered for more than 250 years to lovers of great Champagne wines.
