Description & Technical Information
-
Founded in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger on the Côte des Blancs in 1958, this single estate moved to Vertus in 2004. Marie Doyard (founder member of the CIVC Maurice Doyard was her great grandfather) and brother Benoit then took over. Benoit and his father run the winemaking and viticulture and Marie is very much the public face. The estate is one of the largest for a grower – 24ha, with over 200 parcels; 2ha in the Aisne, 2ha in the Aube, 4ha in Vertus and no fewer than 16ha in Le Mesnil, a huge holding for one domaine in this prestigious Grand Cru. Some 80% of production is exported. Vineyard work cultivates the soil and is as organic as possible. Two spanking Coquard PAI presses and over 200 barrels (nearly everything is barrel fermented) define the winemaking. MLF is routinely blocked on all cuvées. All the wines are Blanc de Blancs (except the rosé). A member of the Passion Chardonnay grouping.
