What does Rêveuse mean?
Rêveuse is the French word for one who dreams.
Why did we create Rêveuse?
We founded Rêveuse to champion the enjoyment and discovery of grower Champagne. We seek to elevate the stories of the rebellious, independent grower-producers following generations of care for the land and instilling passion for quality in every bottle.
What is grower Champagne?
“Grower Champagne” generally refers to wines from the Champagne region of France that are made and bottled by the same estate who grew the grapes.
The initials most commonly associated with Grower Champagnes is RM (meaning Récoltant-Manipulant). The initials NM (meaning Négociant-Manipulant) appear on the labels of large Champagne houses that source the majority of their grapes rather than growing them.
What is the ‘RM’ number on the label?
The RM number on the front right of our label means it's certified grower-producer Champagne - a guarantee that the independent, biodynamic grower farmed the grapes and produced the Champagne on
What is the difference between Champagne and other sparkling wines?
To be deemed Champagne it must be grown and produced in the Champagne region of France. Champagne is typically made from a blend of three grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The blend undergoes two fermentation processes in the bottle, to which yeast and sugar are added. The bottles must then be aged for at least 15 months— 36 months for vintage Champagnes — and are turned regularly so the yeast doesn’t settle. For comparison, most sparkling wines ferment once and are aged for just 90 days.
What is your packaging made of? Is it recyclable?
When it comes to our packaging, we took a considered approach to truly sustainable luxury. Our shipping box and insert might not be much to look at, but we took care to choose materials made from post-consumer recycled paper that can be recycled or composted. Our glass bottles are 100% recyclable. Our bottle label is made from the highest quality organic cotton, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Is Rêveuse 'Natural' Champagne?
To be certified grower producer champagne ‘Récoltant Manipulant’ the grower producer must abide by strict regulations, farming the grapes and making the Champagne on their own property. Grower producers by nature, have small eco-systems in place that are biodynamic, taking care of their land for future generations. In addition, all grapes in the Champagne region must be harvested by hand.
And while the farming and production of Champagne is inherently natural, there is no official rule book on what defines a Champagne as natural. At Rêveuse we follow principles to ensure our Champagnes can be considered natural. We abide by Isabelle Legeron’s Raw Wine Charter of Quality. Isabelle is a highly regarded master of wine and champion of the Natural wine industry. Important aspects of the charter are:
1. No sulfite totals may exceed 70 mg/L regardless of color or style.
2. The Champagne is vegan – nothing coming from an animal is used at any stage in the production.
3. No ‘heavy-manipulation’ using winemaking gadgetry such as reverse osmosis
4. No sterile filtration or pasteurization.
In addition to the Raw Wine Charter of Quality we ensure the grower producers we work with are certified under France’s HEV – high environmental value certification system.
