Champagne Paul Launois was founded in 2015 in Le Mesnil sur Oger by Sarah and Julien Launois after the acquisition of larger premises in 2013.


Julien runs the 6.5 Ha vineyards (16 Acres), which he inherited from his father.


Julien and his father have always worked their vineyards in a conventional way but since this year Julien start the organic conversion for his vignards.


After 9 years discovering various part of the globe, Julien came back in 2009  

Sarah studied at «les beaux Arts» and obtained a Master 2 at the «Ecole supérieure d’Art et de Design».

Sarah and Julien decided to name their brand after their unique son, Paul.


They use 20 to 40 hectolitres stainless steel tanks to individually vinify their parcels.


Till Today, only Chardonnays from Le Mesnil sur Oger are bottled to create a range of «Blanc de Blancs grand cru».


Now that they start knowing their terroir and  that they know more about vinification in stainless steel tanks, Sarah and Julien decided to also use oak barrels.

Seduced by the art of cooperage at the «Tonnellerie Artisanale de Champagne» and willing to know more about the interaction between oak and wine,


they gave birth to the «Single Barrel Champagne».


Every year, the «Tonnellerie Artisanale de Champagne» provides Sarah and Julien with new oak barrels made of 4 years old staves and various toasts


from the lightest to the strongest. Every barrel is unique thanks to its toast and its way of vinification (MLF, Batonnage, ...).the barrels are filled with reserve wines


during 2 months before harvest. Then, the settled most of one specific parcel from Le mesnil sur Oger replaces the reserve wines and stays into the barrels for complete vinification and 9 to 10 months aging without ever being blended.

The client can taste the ground wines during aging to select his favourite barrel. This will give him access to 216 bottles from that same barrel.


These bottles will be delivered after 3 to 10 years of aging in our cellar. He can also choose his favourite dosage.

 Even though the barrels are new, the 4 years old staves and the alcoholic fermentation soften the impact


of the drying tannins and give the wines an elegant roundness led by the minerality of our terroir.
