Ley Riceys is an endearing town known for its location in an important viticultural area known to produce "Rose des Riceys" from the pinot noir grape. It also happens to be gorgeous! It is the only region in Champagne that is known to hold the appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC), which translates in English to "controlled designation of origin". Basically it is the French certification granted to certain French geographical indications for agricultural products certified by the French government. It is based on the concept of terrior mentioned previously. The tiny Champagne House Morize Père & Fils is located here.
