Récoltants-manipulants. This is a classification for Champagne producers who only vinify, make and market champagne from their own grapes. It is recognisable by the RM mention on the label.
This classification is a sign of independence, and enables control of every stage of the production, as well as the quality of the champagnes.
Suggested food and wine pairing: As an aperitif, with rich foods like foie gras or lobster.
