Champagne Dumangin is one of the last producers to make this specialty. The base is half brandy made from Champagne grapes and half grape juice from the region, aged for seven years in a combination of old oak and other vessels, via the Ratafia method. It involves four stages: first, in oak casks from Crozes-Hermitage (Alain Graillot).
