The Carreau family has been associated with wine since 1543 when a distant ancestor was winemaker at the Abbey of Mores in the small community of Celles-sur-Ources. Celles-sur-Ource is in the southernmost part of Champagne which is known as La Côte des Bar.  The soil here is very different from the area further north nearer Reims, in fact geologically and geographically speaking, La Côte des Bar has more in common with Chablis than with the rest of Champagne except for the fact that  in La Côte des Bar Pinot Noir is the main grape varietal.  Lionel Carreau is a a Blanc de Noirs made from vines over 50 years old.
