The Boulachin-Chaput brand is relatively recent but we come from a long line of winegrowers.
So in 1799, Joseph Boulachin got married and settled in Colombé la Fosse to work some vineyards. Until then, he was a wine worker in Arconville (Aube).
It was his grandson Paul who developed the Boulachin brand and even won a gold medal in Troyes in 1924 in recognition of the quality of his work. One of his sons, Marceau perpetuates the Paul Boulachin brand.
When he died in 1986, his son, Albert, after a military career in the air force, took over part of the champagne business. He created the brand Boulachin Chaput in 1996 with his wife Sylvette Chaput.
The Chaput family settled in Arrentières in 1862 with Ferdinand Chaput.
In 1934, Armand Chaput created his brand of champagnes “Grand Cru des Rochottes”.
