My grandfather, Roger Pouillon, created the Domaine when he settled at Mareuil-sur-Aÿ in 1947. Symbolically, to mark the event, he planted a willow tree on the banks of the canal just behind the house. Today this venerable tree has spread its roots and its influence is felt all around the village.
Its evolution resembles that of our Domaine which has also grown considerably, developing on an international level. But, like the weeping willow, it has remained well rooted in its terroir. You can see that the tree and its roots form a kind of fingerprint, an identity mark. We are committed, by means of our parcel selection, to preserving the individual identity, or fingerprint, of each terroir in our champagnes, day after day. In choosing this emblem I wanted it to be as much a tribute to our family heritage, as a symbol of the philosophy that guides us at the Domaine.
