Matthias Eun Desruets and Thomas Kim Desruets, were born in Seoul but adopted the Champagne region as their spiritual home and now they have inherited the Champagne Desruets family firm.
They are a determined pair and complement each other perfectly. Matthias is in charge of the production and Thomas manages all the sales and marketing. Thomas created his own brand ‘Champagne Thomas Kim Desruets’ to transmit their driving passion for Champagne in South Korea and around the world!
A vineyard on land of outstanding quality, know-how dating back a hundred years and traditional methods… For over a century Desruets have spared no pains to produce the finest champagne.
The family-run firm of Desruets was founded in 1888 in Hautvillers, in the heart of the Champagne region where Dom Perignon produced the world’s first bottle of wine now known as champagne.
With a vineyard rooted in a terroir of inimitable quality considered to be one of the best in the region, over the generations Desruets have nurtured their inherited know-how to produce wines bordering on perfection. Desruets are eager to maintain their identity and traditions and have always pressed their grapes in the old way using their original wooden “Darcq Flamain” press. Each batch of wine therefore encapsulates Maison Desruets’ 124 years of history and passion, giving it all the characteristics and aromas that make it a truly unique champagne.
Desruets champagne is a blend of the 3 champagne grape varieties: Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.
Chardonnay gives great champagne all the liveliness and finesse that makes it famous while Pinot noir adds intensity and strength. Pinot Meunier, on the other hand, adds a fruity note that results in champagne which is both finely balanced and boasts great complexity of aromas.
Desruets champagne is aged on the lees for an average 3 years. Our cellars are maintained at a mean temperature of 12°C to ensure optimal ageing.
