Description & Technical Information
-
Champagne Domaine La Borderie was created in 2013 by Simon and Marie Normand. As brother and sister, they took over the family estate of 11.5 hectares, located around Bar-sur-Seine in the Côte des Bar. This is 160kms south of Reims and if you drive a further 162kms south you are in Beaune! For over 100 years the family sold their grapes to the big brands then in 2013 they produced 6000 bottles and now they are making over 20,000 bottles. Important to the family has been conservation of biodiversity their area in 2013 classified as "High Environmental Value" and additionally certified "Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne."

In the vineyard they are constantly looking for small yields and a high degree of ripeness of the grapes giving a high concentration of fruit in the champagnes. The winery is ultra modern, gravity fed and with each batch vinified separately. A little oak is used typically 5-15% of oak-fermented wines, the stainless steel fermented wines go through the malolactic fermentation whereas in barrels it is avoided. Oxidative style is not to Simon’s liking, tension and fruitiness very much are.

Vinification:The rose colour comes from maceration of the grapes in stainless steel tanks and as soon as the colour is obtained, some 36 to 48 hours, then the juice is removed. The malolactic fermentation continues in stainless steel tanks.

Weather: 2015 is remembered for its classic growth cycle. The particularly mild winter gave way to a varied spring with a period of freezing temperatures followed by intense heat. The vines reached full bloom at the usual times, during a sunny and dry month of June. It was a glorious summer with plenty of sunshine and little rain. The ripening of the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays was given a boost at the end of August by some long-awaited rainfall. The crops were harvested in mid-September under the cool autumnal skies, giving rise to elegant, fresh and fruity wines, worthy of labelling as true “classics”.

Nick Baker
“The rose is made in the saignee method, so the red grapes skins are in contact with the juice for 36 to 48 hours to gain the desired colour and fruit. Fermented in stainless steel the champagne has red fruit purity and a strong rose colour. You see fruits like raspberry, blackcurrant, morello cherry, dark plum and a really expressive nose that broadens on the palate, it has a creamy texture, all the fruits combine with a chalky mineral element from the soils and a freshness from the acidity. Delicious with or without food. ”

    Domaine La Borderie Cuvee Douce Folie Rose

    July 4, 2022

    La Borderie began as a small champagne producer in 2013 when Simon and his sister Marie Normand took over the family vineyards deciding to stop selling their grapes and create their own champagne label. Winemaker Simon makes champagne with fruit expression and purity, all small lots with great vineyard character and low dosage. Located nearer Burgundy than Reims they benefit from slightly warmer climate than most of Champagne and Pinot Noir thrives here.
