en vie d'éphémère
... brings together the legendary reputation of the king of wines with a casual and unconventional lifestyle.
Champagne is considered the king of wines and is often associated with grand occasions and decadence.
We understand champagne not as an expression of prestige, but as an enjoyable way to appreciate the beautiful moments of life.
"Don't wait for the special moment, make the small moment special" (Linda Barbosa Fortes).
...and then we just opened a bottle en vie - remember?
"en vie d'éphémère" loosely translated means "liveliness of transience".
The name refers to nature and life. Cycles, correlations, cycles. Seasons in the vineyard, the transience of the moments of life. .
A champenoise-cologne cooperation
Together with a French winemaker, Linda Barbosa Fortes of Cologne developed the first variety of en vie d'éphémère.
The rules of making champagne are binding. But there are differences - a loving and individual production is noticeable in the taste and clearly stands out from the mass-produced goods. Already in the eighth generation, our experienced winemaker Yves now runs his family business. He is considered a "vigneron indépendent" - an independent business that does everything itself, from cultivation to labeling. With his three employees, he takes care of 7 hectares of vineyards in the middle of the Montagne de Reims with individual care and dedication.
He makes our champagne exclusively for en vie d'éphémère. We have been on the market since 2019 and since then we have been able to attract more and more pleasure-loving explorers to our special drop.
