What you need to know...
Cédric Bouchard is one of the best producers you've never heard of in Champagne.
He has two labels - Roses de Jeanne and Inflorescence.
He bottles only single vineyard, single varietal, single vintage cuveés.
The wines have great individuality and character, each expressing the vintage and their single vineyard nature.
Each wine is made from first press juice, and fermented with indigenous yeasts.
The yields are tiny and combine organic farming with picking at the last moment to ensure ripeness and balance.
There is a long, cool, second fermentation, which creates smaller, finer bubbles.
The wines are produced with very low, or no dosage, depending on the vintage, to allow the unique terroir of each wine to take center stage.
Simply put, these are individualistic, kaleidoscopic, Champagnes that every true wine lover should experience.
