Description & Technical Information
-
Roses de Jeanne is the range made from Cédric Bouchard's own vines, rather than his fathers vineyards which he also manages. He promotes low yields which results in an extremely complex, full flavoured champagne. The vineyards are farmed bio-dynamic with hand labour and horses. The Cote des Bar is typically quite different soils to the more northerly regions, more Kimmeridgian soil so a blend of limestone and clay, these more clay rich soils and the slightly warmer temperatures tend to bring broader and fuller champagnes.

A single vineyard champagne from a 1.5 hectare "lieu-dit" of Val Vilaine. 300-500 cases produced annually.

“Roses de Jeanne is the range made from Cédric Bouchard's own, particularly low-yielding vines, rather than his father's vineyards, which he also manages. The vineyards are farmed biodynamically by hand and horse. The soils here in the Côte des Bar, richer in clay in a slightly warmer climate than further north. This is a single-vineyard champagne from the 1.5-ha Val Vilaine lieu-dit with vines aged 35+ years. Only 300 to 500 cases are produced annually. Cédric Bouchard created his own Champagne house as recently as 2000. 100% Pinot Noir aged for three years on the lees. Disgorged April 2019. Zero dosage.
Engaging and intense mature aroma soared out of the bottle as soon as it was opened. Remarkably little mousse. But an intense perfume in the floral spectrum of Pinot Noir. Nice, neat, rather rich palate – amazing since this is relatively young and there is zero dosage! Testament to how ripe these grapes get. Perhaps this is a champagne to savour during or even after a meal rather than as a zesty aperitif. Bone-dry, long finish. Very Pinot and rather flirtatious.”
