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 1.45 hectare "lieu-dit" of Val Vilaine with vines 35 year old. 300-500 cases produced annually. The wine is bottled with a low sugar to yeast ratio giving a lower pressure champagne around 4.25 bars, compared to a typical 6 bars, so you get a softer mousse which is perfect for young champagnes with zero dosage. Bouchard prefers to go for fruit freshness and likes to keep lees contact much shorter than is typical in the region. This is from dominant vintage of 2019 and is identified on the back label with V19

Tasting Note: Cédric Bouchard's NV Blanc de Noirs Côte de Val Vilaine (2019) is beautiful, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, green apple, clear honey, fresh bread, almond paste, white flowers and mirabelle plum. Medium to full-bodied, layered and vinous, it's satiny and textural, with an enveloping core of fruit, superb concentration and incisive acids. Chiseled and penetrating, it concludes with a long, saline finish. - Tasting note by William Kelley

“Cédric Bouchard's NV Blanc de Noirs Côte de Val Vilaine (2019) is beautiful, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, green apple, clear honey, fresh bread, almond paste, white flowers and mirabelle plum. Medium to full-bodied, layered and vinous, it's satiny and textural, with an enveloping core of fruit, superb concentration and incisive acids. Chiseled and penetrating, it concludes with a long, saline finish. If the 2018 was immediate and demonstrative, this has structure to burn with age, charming though it is out of the gates, and I'm inclined to nominate it Bouchard's finest Val Vilaine to date.”

Antonio Galloni
“The 2019 Blanc de Noirs Val Vilaine is rich, ample and so expressive. The 2019 captures all of the radiance of the vintage in this open-knit, voluptuous expression. Pear, baked apple, dried flowers, chamomile and spice build into the racy, opulent finish. Don't miss it. No dosage. Disgorged: 2021.”
