The Brussels couple of modest means who gave birth on the 24th of June 1790 to the young Jean-Baptiste little suspected that they would become the parents of a talented figure destined to make a mark on the world.
His grandparents were farmers, so it was not simply down to chance that in around 1811, shortly after turning twenty and following extensive travels, the young Fleming left Belgium and went to live in France, in the fertile region of Saumur.
Jean Baptiste Ackerman, who had already learned all the secrets of champagne devised in the 18th century by the Benedictine monk Dom Pérignon, chose Saumur quite deliberately.
He chose Saumur firstly because of its favourable geological characteristics: the Saumur area, with its chalky soil dominated by tuffeau limestone, gives wines a natural tendency to develop effervescence; but it was also a combination of many other favourable factors such as the presence of waterways to facilitate transport and easy links with Touraine for supplying wine and a large workforce.
So it was that this fervent believer in the sciences and horticulture with a strong sense of commerce and business became the establisher in Saumur of the traditional method and the founder of the eponymous Ackerman company.
