Barzy-sur-Marne is located some 15 km east by north-east of Château-Thierry and 35 km south-west of Rheims. It can be accessed on the D320 road from Jaulgonne in the west passing through the commune and the village curving south to Passy-sur-Marne. Apart from the village there are two hamlets: Marcilly, and Rosay both located on the D320 road. Some 70% of the commune in the north is heavily forested with the balance consisting of farmland.
The commune lies within the Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) zone for "Champagne of Aisne".
In 1923 the capital of the commune of Barzy-sur-Marne was transferred from Barzy-sur-Marne to the hamlet of Marcilly which became the capital of the commune but this transfer was done without changing the name of the commune following the Decree of 23 October 1923.

From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
