Champagne Dom Godinot

The benefactor of Reims and champagne, Canon Jean Godinot, born in Reims in 1661, was the son of a tanner who died young, leaving behind seven children and a meagre fortune. Together with other monks they brought Champagne wines to life, adding that sparkle to the tiny bubbles which, in raised glasses all over the world, have come to symbolise celebration, shared joy, excitement and victory.
