A family house
The Alain Vesselle family has been living in Bouzy for several generations, the famous Grand Cru of the Montagne de Reims. Already Alain Vesselle’s ancestors grew vines.
In the 1960s, Alain – the heir to a line of winegrowers – created his own brand of champagne. He passed on his passion for the vine and for the wine to his son Eloi,
who himself passed it on to his sons.
The history of the Vesselle family is marked by changes. Discover a short timeline with a few key dates.
Fulgence Vesselle creates his brand under his own name around the 1930's. This committed man actively participates at the renown of Bouzy and Champagne region.
Fulgence Vesselle is the precious voice of the AVC in the field. He provides advice and experience for technical works of the AVC. « In 1962, thanks to his exceptional qualities he became Member of the Executive Board of the Association Viticole Champenoise. » M. de Vogüé's speech LE VIGNERON CHAMPENOIS

Respect for the heritage
This wine emanates from a winegrower's know-how passed on by Alain Vesselle to his descendants. Saint Eloi is the patron saint of goldsmiths, blacksmiths, all workers in metal and farmers. An ancestral bottle with a rounder shape recalls the first champagne bottles.
As a pioneer winegrower, Alain Vesselle introduces this prestigious bottle to smaller Champagne Houses.
He built LE CAVEAU LE BOUZY ROUGE to welcome groups for tastings or champagne paired meals.
