“A passionate and dedicated perfectionist, Cédric Bouchard has only been making wine since 2000, yet his champagnes have already become some of the most sought-after in the region.”

One parcel, one variety, one vintage, this is the essence of Bouchard’s philosophy.
Early on he produced wines under a label called Inflorescence, this no longer exists. The vines that bore the first for these wines, came from Cédric’s father, who had a very different approach. He now owns these vineyards and farms them in the same way as all the other Roses de Jeanne wines. The estate is named with homage to his Polish grandmother, Janika.
Roses de Jeanne parcels are trained in Cordon du Royat for pinot noir and Chablis for chardonnay, and are always harvested exceptionally low, at 4,000 kg/ha (26 hl/ha). This helps deliver the extreme concentration, minerality and precision found in Cédric’s wines.

Tasting Notes

96 Points Vinous
The 2010 Blanc de Blancs La Haute-Lemblée offers shades of the magnificent 2004 in its finely-cut, chiseled fruit and crystalline purity. A stunner of a wine, the 2010 pulses with energy, delineation and class. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chalk wrap around the taut, super-expressive finish. There is so much to look forward to here once the wine softens up in another year or two.
