Our House


blason Galichet Our History

The Galichet family left the small village of Pontfaverger Northeast of Reims and arrived in Bouzy in 1956 where Serge Galichet found a job as a communal agent. The family settled and liked Bouzy very much. Thus Serge Galichet decided to orient his career towards the vineyard work and integrate a Big Champagne House in Reims where he would learn the various facets of winemaking.

A few years later, the opportunity arose to acquire a few parcels of vines, and so was born its first cuvee in 1959. His eldest son, Remy, from a young age, loved spending time with his father, he integrated the famous Wine School in Avize.

A lover of the local soil, hardworking and ambitious, Remy continued in this way with the acquisition of its first parcels in Aisne department … 1973 was marked by its first harvest and the launch of his own brand of Remy Galichet champagnes.

blason Galichet Traditions & Modernity

In 1999-2000, the Champagne Remy Galichet built a production-site of 2,500 squares meters bordering the vineyards.  Modern facilities are equipped with a cellar, a labeling-and-corking line, a laboratory, a winery, a wine-press and a sumptuous tasting-room hosting up to 60 people, in order to create high quality champagnes applying the traditional Champagne method.

The property now has nearly 9 hectares of vineyards spread over the finest Champagne hillsides which are on the Montagne de Reims (Bouzy, Ambonnay, Trépail, Ay), the Côte des Blancs (Vertus, Bergères-les-Vertus, Chouilly) and the Vallée de la Marne (Mont-Saint-Père, Gland).

The 3 daughters, Ingrid, Aurélie et Carole work together in the Champagne House and perpetuate the style and the Savoir-Faire of the House Galichet.
