A wine terroir combines an identifiable physical and biological environment(soil, subsoil, topography and climate)
with applied winemaking practices,
conferring distinctive characteristics
on the produce of these vineyards.
Located at the most northerly limits of vine cultivation,
Champagne comes under the influence of a dual climate, both
oceanic and continental.
The Champagne vineyards are planted at altitudes ranging between
90 and 300 metres.
