Champagne Tribaut Schloesser : The origin of a great wine and passion in winemaking for four generations.
The Tribaut Schloesser Champagne House was founded in 1929. After nearly a century of growth, it is currently making 40 hectares for each harvest. With a vineyard located in the Marne Valley on the communes of Romery, Cormoyeux and Ay Grand Cru, the House cultivates an exceptional Champagne terroir.
Reserve wines bred in casks and oak barrels refine the Tribaut style while being part of the family tradition perpetrated for 4 generations.
The elaboration of the cuvées is characterized by a longer aging and a lower dosage than usual, distinguishing and inscribing the wines of the House in a range of refined products. The House is now present in more than 25 countries, awarded more than 50 medals and awards in the last 10 years, awarded by the international press and present on the big tables around the world.
The Champagne House Tribaut Schloesser is a reference to accompany the great moments of your life.
The passion of wine for four generations
The story begins in the early twentieth century when René Schloesser, a young Luxembourg farmer, leaves his native country for Champagne to live more properly. There he meets Lucie Coutelas, a young farmer and winegrower from Romery. They marry in 1927. In 1929, when a serious economic crisis rages in France and that the champagne merchants decide not to buy any more grapes, René and Lucie then decide to market their own Champagne! Thus is born our House …
Initially, only some 1000 bottles are produced. René brings them himself every morning to Damery station, on the luggage rack of his bike, to route them to Paris where the family, living in the capital, is responsible for marketing.
After the Liberation in 1945, Champagne sales increased and the production of the Schloesser House gradually increased; it quickly moves to 5,000 bottles, mainly marketed in Paris and Lyon.
Suzanne and Jean
In 1950, Suzanne, the daughter of René and Lucie, married Jean TRIBAUT, a young winegrower and cellar worker. They join their family vineyards to create the current brand: CHAMPAGNE TRIBAUT-SCHLOESSER. Throughout their career, Jean and Suzanne have constantly developed the House, including buying new vineyards to produce more and improving the working tool.
In 1967, their son Jean-Marie joined them, to manage the vineyard and the winery, so that Jean could devote himself to commercial development.
In 1980, they build the current cellar, and they embark on the purchase of thunderbolts and demi-muids (barrels) to refine and create the unique TRIBAUT style.
In 1986, the house began to ship its bottles abroad: in Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, Switzerland and the United States.
In the 1990s, Jean-Marie and his brother will take another dimension to the House. They start buying grapes from other village winemakers and the finest Champagne wines and improve the production tool by buying, in 2005, two new automatic presses.
The fourth generation
Today it is the fourth generation that perpetuates the traditional knowledge of their ancestors.
Sébastien and Valentin, the two sons of Jean-Marie, took over the reins of the House and put their complementarity and their know-how at the service of CHAMPAGNE TRIBAUT-SCHLOSSER to offer you fine and delicate champagnes that accompany you in the most beautiful moments of your life for so many years.
The house, the vineyard, the origin of a great wine.
The TRIBAUT-SCHLOESSER House produces for each harvest, the equivalent of 40 hectares from our family vineyard but also external supplies.
Tribaut Schloesser Champagne vines are located mainly in the communes of Romery, Cormoyeux and Fleury la Rivière. In a remote valley of the Marne, backed by the Montagne de Reims, its slopes, facing south, south-east, and clay-limestone soils allow the cultivation of very beautiful millers and very surprising chardonnays. We also grow vines in the town of Aÿ, a village classified as Grand Cru, located in the greater Marne Valley and known for its Pinot Noir.
Tribaut Schloesser Champagne external supply of grapes, comes from the valley but also from the most beautiful wines of Champagne such as Aÿ Grand Cru, Ecueil Premier Cru, Damery or Bassuet.
For each of these sectors they maintain a relationship of trust with each winemaker who strives to provide the high quality grapes while respecting a reasoned viticulture as they do in the vineyard.
Infrastructure with quality services
Maison Tribaut-Schloesser combines tradition and technological advances to extract all the quintessence of its grapes. Thus, the pressing center and the winemaking cellar meet all the required quality standards.
The 7 casks and some 20 barrels present to raise the reserve wines refine the Tribaut style while being part of the family tradition perpetrated for 4 generations.
