Domaine de Chez Bacou, bouilleur de cru in Mainxe (grande champagne)
Just a little east of the little hamlet Mainxe you can find the rather unknown vineyards of the Martin family. The domaine is called Chez Bacou and it is the name for their cognacs as well. They grow vines for eight generations now on thirty hectares of land in the grande champagne region. The whole production process takes place on their domaine. It is Vianney Martin, together with her spouse Christian, who owns the place today.
Range (grande champagne): Réserve, VSOP, XO (from 1990).
Address: 6 Chemin de Chez Bacou, 16200 Mainxe. Telephone: 0545 819558. (No information known on possibilities to visit).
