Quietly in the shadows of the larger houses in the Côte de Blancs, vine-growing Champagne artisans like Jean-Michel Turgy are crafting character-rich wines based on the traditions of past winemaking generations. Turgy sets himself apart with wines that do more than just reflect the Mesnil style—sumptuous, sensual and richly flavored—but faithfully capture the true character of the region’s unparalleled terroir, a vibrant personality often muted by mass-producing Champagne houses. For more than 130 years, the Turgy family has grown Chardonnay grapes on these chalky soils, and because of this, they can certainly claim to be more than acquainted with the true soul and substance of Mesnil
