A tribute to Marie Stuart

Mary Stuart, a fascinating and mysterious historical figure, is one of the most astonishing characters from the Renaissance. An extraordinary woman, considered by her contemporaries as the greatest beauty in Europe, she is the very incarnation of woman in all her complexity and singularity.

A woman of many facets

She was Queen of Scotland and Queen of France, wife to Francis II and the rival of Queen Elizabeth I of England. The story of this monarch, her passionate and glamorous personality, her weaknesses and grandeurs, has always inspired artists, writers and poets of every age.

 

She was very fond of the Champagne region where she stayed with her aunt Renata of Lorraine, at the time Abbess of Saint-Pierre-les-Dames Abbey in Reims. There she won the hearts of the local population. A street in Reims was renamed in her honour (one of its buildings is currently home to the Union of Champagne Houses).

Sparkling, noble and charming, Mary Stuart’s personality is everything that makes champagne magical. A queen of a hundred faces, a woman of many facets.

The Champagne House

 

 

Established in Reims in 1867, La Maison de Champagne Marie Stuart belongs to the prestigious world of grand champagne houses. Its story began in 1867 in the heart of Reims, but its recent development dates back to the 1960s when it moved to 8, Place de la République.

Today on Rue des Moissons, it is recognised for its elegant and refreshing champagnes. With vines in the three major Champagne regions of the Montagne de Reims, the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs, the grapes are carefully selected from the best crus.

Singularity, feminity et subtlety

She is familiar with the particular story that connects champagne and women.

Originally from the Saint-Thierry uplands, she joined the winery in 2005 where she has continued to care for, create and blend champagnes in her own image: singular, feminine and subtle.
