Situated just 15 km from the Abbey of Clairvaux and separate from the village, the Monial estate invites you to discover its Champagne and history dating back to the 12th century, where you will find the remains of the former pressing centre used by Cistercian monks.The majestic stained-glass window of the chapel is also sure to catch your eye. As you tour the estate, you will discover how the family, which has owned this estate for four generations, continues to use the same expertise and traditions, combined with a touch of modernity, particularly in the vat room. The highlight of the tour is always the 600 m² wine cellar, the only one of its kind in the Champagne region, listed as a historical monument. The two oculi (openings in the top of the vaults) bear witness to the ancestral methods used by the monks. Pressing was carried out on the ground floor and the must was poured directly into the cellars via these openings.
