Maison Mercier, founded in 1858 by Eugène Mercier at the tender age of twenty, is one of the great Champagne names. Thanks to the drive of its visionary founder, Champagne Mercier has become a firm French favourite. Eugène Mercier strove against the odds to purvey Champagne of the highest quality to a wide public. Eugène Mercier had a stock answer for inevitable sceptics: “You can laugh, but the day will come when rivers of Champagne will flow through Epernay”. Some ten years later Eugène was proved right.
By taking part in the great exhibitions of the 19th century and conducting an imaginative advertising campaign, Eugène Mercier aimed to catch the public imagination. Champagne Mercier was to become a fixture at all major social occasions. The founder's spirit still prevails. The fresh, fruity, intense and spontaneous Mercier vintages fashioned by Christophe Bonnefond, Chef de Cave for the House, reflect this authentic, warm-hearted spirit.
Enjoyed in France and throughout the world during the most enjoyable of occasions, formal and informal, Mercier always brings something extra to the party. The Mercier Brut cuvee is the reference for the House style, reflecting the vivacity, fresh aromas and intense fruity notes which are the Mercier trademarks.
