Meet the Maker Dinner series “Les Champagnes Jeeper”& Autumn Celebration Menu by Romain Bapst

Following the great success of our last dinners we welcome Les Champagnes Jeeper for a first at Lutèce and new in Australia with a great history behind.

The Jeeper Story

Wine growers since the 18th century, the Maison Jeeper story truly began in 1949.

It was then that Armand Goutorbe, son of Victor Goutorbe, on his return from the Second World War, decide to produce and sell his Champagne.

Armand Goutorbe christened his brand Champagne JEEPER, with an eye to making himself stand out from the many wine growers of the region also named Goutorbe, and in reference to the Jeep bestowed upon him by the local authorities to help him ascend the vineyard slopes with ease.

As part of its winery investments in the Bordeaux region and in Tokaji, Hungary, the Reybier group has just joined forces with Nicolas Dubois, current Chief Executive, to take over the firm “Les Domaines Jeeper”. Under the leadership of this group, the house of Champagne Jeeper is now consolidated and possesses the means necessary for its development, as well as for its desire to transform its offering into a premium product.

A few figures about Champagne Jeeper: 40 hectares of land owned, 160 hectares of grapes supplied under a multi-annual contract with wine-growing partners in the region, approximately 2,500,000 bottles produced each year under full ownership.

Mainly distributed in France (70%), and in search of new footholds, our sales momentum is also demonstrating a pitch perfect development in terms of exports.

Romain Bapst will celebrate Autumn in true French style with the Guinea fowl Pie, the Moreton Bay bug, the duck au poivre & the Doyenne du Comice Pear.
