A unique place steeped in history

The terroir of Les Riceys is where the Champagne and the Burgundy regions meet. According to a piece of writing dating back from year 1000, the richness of its soil was discovered by the monks of the abbey in Molesme.

Spurred on by the monks, and more particularly by the priest Robert de Molesme who founded the Order of the Cistercian, the vineyard gained a solid fame in Champagne before extending worldwide centuries later.

Les Riceys, a bucolic village, gathers three hamlets, each of them owning an impressive church, the testimony of the rich cultural past of the village.
