This charming village produces premier cru champagne, with three different grape varieties produced in an area covering 275ha. The village's attractive narrow streets are adorned with 140 forged-iron signs, hand-painted in traditional fashion, which illustrate the trade or activity carried out in the house to which they are attached. The old abbey church preserves the pious memory of Dom Pérignon (1639-1715), who fine-tuned production methods for making champagne.
