70% of the vineyards are planted to Pinot Noir. The Jolly family only makes wines from their own grapes and has 11 hectares in 4 family owned parcels.
The harvest lasts 10 days in September. The grapes are hand picked and pressed very quickly on a Coquard press,made in Reims. Our system is unique in the Champagne area. After 2 to 4 years of ageing (of which a portion is done in oak barrels) the mature wines are blended with younger wines to produce the authentic René Jolly Champagnes. We use 300 litre oak barrels and the quality of the wood is of the utmost importance. The actual oak comes from a neighbouring village, it is fine grained and the barrels are gently toasted.
The blends will use 3 or 4 different vintages to keep and maintain the taste and the quality of our champagnes year after year. Ageing can take between 3 and 9 years in the cool, quiet and dark conditions of our old vaulted cellars from the 18h century.
