Photographer's Note

The village of Verzenay, in the mountain of Rheims, framed on the left by the lighthouse and on the right the mill.

A Lighthouse in champagne? Although it dominates a sea of vines, one can wonder what it does there. It is the son of the founder of the stores Goulet-Turpin who had the idea into 1909 to set up this monument with a purely advertising aim. The mill, as for him, was built in 1820 and is currently the property of the Mumm Champagne. This part of the mountain of Rheims is one of those where the grape is the best to make champagne, we are in great vintage.
