The first Farfelan to grow vines in Argançon was Hubert following his marriage in 1740 with a young girl from the village. Then the Farfelan became winemakers from father to son until the death of Zacharie at the beginning of the 1930s.
The current exploitation was born in 1974, when Bernard and Claude, his sons undertook to clear the abandoned slopes of the town for many years.
Over time, the exploitation has grown and evolved. It now has around 7 hectares of vineyards. Because of the significant slopes, all the mechanical work is done by a chaser.
Among the highlights, we can report, in 1992, the birth of the champagne brand "Claude Farfelan". In 2016, the Cuvée Margot, emblem of the house, results from our best Pinots Noirs. In 2018, our exploitation was certified in sustainable viticulture in champagne rewarding our work done for years in respect of nature and biodiversity.
In 2012, Laurent takes over the direction with the help of his wife Marianne, continuing the family saga.

Our Phylosophy

Local exploitation

Our plots are located exclusively in the town of Argançon, a small village in the Landion Valley in the Bars coast, known for the quality of its Pinot Noir.

A work in chenillard

This makes us more work because we must go through all the vines rows, this allows us to work closer to the vines and to carry out a meticulous work.

A realized viticulture

In order to respect the health, the environment and to preserve our soil and our landscapes, we practice a reasoned viticulture, each intervention is considered.

We support research against diabetes

Our daughter Margot, being type 1 diabetic, we decided to donate 2 euros per bottle sold for research against diabetes.

The Vineyard

The terroir and the grape variety

Argançon, located 50 km east of Troyes, is a small charming and pleasant village which is in the Bars coast along the Landion Valley.
Exploitation vineyards is located on hillsides exposed mostly south, southeast, which allows a good maturity to the harvest.
We have the peculiarity of having a large majority of parcels on a slope (up to 55%), which gives a beautiful typicity to our champagnes.
We practice a reasoned viticulture with a mechanical work of soil and weeding rather than using weed killers as well as a limited use of plant protection products, in order to respect our terroir.
