In 2007, the PRIEUX Group led by Christophe PRIEUX took over the management of Champagne Gardet. The PRIEUX family has its roots in the Champagne region with a family tree dating back to the 17th century. At the beginning the family worked the land and Pierre, Christophe's grandfather, decided to leave the agricultural field shortly before the Second World War to settle in Reims. There he started a business as a gardener and then as a nurseryman which was successfully developed by his son, Jean. After studying International Business in Reims and London, Christophe joined his father and the family business in 1990, still in the tree production and plant distribution business, developing the Jardiland chain of French garden centres, the leader in France and Spain. He then decided to rely on his roots in the Champagne region to develop the most emblematic activity of his region: the production of Champagne.
In 2007, the succession of the House of Champagne Gardet in Chigny-les-Roses had to be organised and a production of almost one million bottles was added to the production of Champagne of the Prieux family which had its origin in Ludes, a neighbouring village, with the exploitation of the House of Champagne Ployez-Jacquemart.
Almost twenty years later, Christophe continues his work, the fruit of a passion for Champagne and its unique terroir in the world, with recognition in over thirty countries. He is at the service of the development of the Gardet Champagne House, with his wife Nathalie, Olivier Legendre, the General Manager and a committed team at his side. Champagne is without doubt the most perfect expression of the Champagne terroir. Through the exceptional cuvées of the Maison Gardet, Christophe Prieux proposes an illustration of his terroir roots. An elegant and refined way of sharing with his customers a certain idea of the French art of living.
