Patrick Manceaux range of champagnes

If you ask Patrick Manceaux or his sister Agnès Givry, who together run Champagne Roger Manceaux, why a bicycle was so important to the history of their company they will immediately understand what you mean and will tell you the story of how the company was started by their grandfather.

You can hear Patrick tell the story in the video below so I won’t steal his thunder, but suffice it to say that their grandfather must have been a very single-minded young man.

You’ll find Champagne Roger Manceaux in the village of Rilly-La-Montagne, a thriving little village in the heart of the Montagne De Reims area of Champagne. Patrick calls it The Crossroads of Champagne partly because all three Champagne grape varieties are planted in and around the village and partly because it’s midway between Epernay and Reims and still has a railway station on the line joining the two towns.
