FIRST BOTTLING

Our family has been living in the Marne river valley as growers from father to son since 1629 and as winemakers for 4 generations. We came to Cuisles in 1880, cultivating vines and selling the grapes to the large champagne houses.

Born in 1896, Eugène Moussé first took the same step. Later in the 1920’s, when he got tired of the ever-fluctuating grape price and fed up with his dependency on the whims of the buyers, he became one of the first two growers of the canton to start vinifying his own Champagne.

The first bottling happened in 1923, which he started commercializing in 1926.

EUGÈNE AND EDMOND ARE DEPORTED IN GERMANY, SUZANNE CARIES ON

Sales are developing until 1939’s conflict. The 2nd world war endangers all Eugène’s hard work, as he tragically died in the Neuengamme concentration camp in 1945.

His wife Suzanne bravely carried on until their son Edmond had recovered and came back from the same camp where is was also deported.

EDMOND COMES BACK FROM THE NEUEMGAMME

From then, the Champagne Moussé Fils adventure took on a new lease of life. Edmond was a remarkable wine enthusiast and connoisseur. He not only preserved the family traditions, but also took the quality of the wine to a whole new level. Sadly, he got ill and passed away in 1990, which means he never got the chance to keep expanding the company with his son Jean Marc, who joined him on the estate.

FIRST HARVEST FOR JEAN-MARC

Passionate about his vineyard and his wine, Jean-Marc started the ecological transition turn very early. Shortly after he moved on the estate, he began covering the vineyard with grass and rethink the whole production.

As a builder, he constructed a new press in 1990, in a place that will later become the current reception place. In 2009, with his son Cédric, he created a new winery entirely eco-conceived.

An accident stopped his momentum in 2013. Cédric will then finish the vinification his father started. As a committed man, he’s been mayor of Cuisles for 25 years.

THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES

After a few years spent working and training in different wine regions, but also in the experimental winery of The Comité Champagne, Cédric spent a lot of time experimenting in the family vineyard.

Very quickly, the strong will and passion to go far in a super sustainable production with a real durability started to take shape.

In 2014, the challenge to stop permanently all synthetic pesticides was a success. Since then, requirements are very clear: produce better and clean.
