What is a "Dame Chevalier des The Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne"?

The Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne is the official fraternity of the major Champagne brands. Its mission is to promote the variety, versatility, taste and other unique characteristics that make Champagne wines synonymous with success and celebration everywhere.

 

Unlike other champagne wine fraternities, which confine themselves to the promotion of a particular “cru” or variety of grape, the very special feature of the ORDRE DES COTEAUX DE CHAMPAGNE is that it extols the wines of Champagne in general and in their diversity.
