History of Champagne Jeepers
In 2009, Nicolas and Myriam Dubois, both winemakers and true Champenois, took over the brand and infused it with a powerful new ambition. They wanted to cement its position in the traditional champagne market by creating a new bottle, unique to Jeeper.
2013 heralded a decisive encounter with Michel Reybier. Always in search of excellence products, Reybier family is known internationally and particularly in the wine world for their properties in the Cos d’Estournel (listed Grand Cru of Saint-Estèphe) and their Tokaj estates in Hungary. The Dubois family, current owner of Les domaines Jeeper, registered in the winemaking tradition since 1764, has always had at its heart the production of high-quality champagnes. Sharing this passion and this ambition for excellence has linked these two families. Together, they pulled out all the stops to breathe new life into Jeeper Champagnes and build a solid, long-lasting brand.
The culmination of this hard work came in 2014, with the arrival of Jeeper’s «next generation» champagnes. These for non-vintage champagnes are the distilled essence of the brand’s philosophy and unique flavour. They are the embodiment of the Jeeper Taste.
History of the Name
A winemaking dynasty since the 18th century, the Goutorbe family produces high-quality champagne in the village of Damery, in the heart of the Marne valley. Armand Goutorbe, the heir to the family business, passed a major milestone in the brand’s history in the 1940’s.
As an intelligence officer for the French Army during the Second World War, the young winemaker was taken prisoner. He stayed strong and did not divulge any military secrets, eventually helping save American and other allied soldiers from certain death.
Armand returned to his native Champagne disabled, but received a Willy’s Jeep from the US Army to enable him to work the vines and give him the chance to get his life and business back on track.
It was in memory of his story and the desire to stand out from the various other Goutorbes in the region that led Armand Goutorbe to rename his champagne “Jeeper” in 1949.
As a real entrepreneur, the “Jeeper Man”, as friendly nicknamed by the people of the region, developed his business. This was the birth of the Jeeper brand: truly excellent champagnes, created in a spirit of audacity, modernity and accessibility.
