Julien Launois Winemaker
Julien Launois has been working the vines belonging to his family for several generations. He created his first brand "Champagne Jean-Pierre Launois" to market his bottles as a cooperator-harvester.
After having worked abroad for 9 years, Julien decided to open a new page in the history of the family house with his wife Sarah: making his own grower champagnes.
Sarah Launois is an artist and graphic designer with a passion for wine. She illustrated the new visual identity for Champage Launois, creating a brand named after their son: Paul Launois.
In 2013, Julien and Sarah acquired a wine building in the heart of Mesnil sur Oger. They completed the renovation themselves and brought in their first harvest in 2015. They vinify in stainless steel vats and in barrels, experiment, assemble, taste ... and from this same passion for champagne is born "Champagne Paul Launois."
Champagne Paul Launois is a love story: the love of a man and a woman; the love of wine and art; the love of a son and a family.
