“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

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Disgorged in April 2014, Cédric Bouchard’s NV Blanc de Noirs Les Ursules (2010) is showing brilliantly, soaring from the glass with scents of mandarin, pear, smoke and clear honey. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, ample and layered, with chewy extract and considerable concentration, its vinous profile and evident maturity of fruit tempered, as ever, by lively acids that lend the wine unerring precision, even when it’s served at room temperature. Bouchard owns a 0.97-hectare parcel in the north-facing lieu-dit of Les Ursules, and it was this site in the 2000 vintage that he launched his then-fledgling label.
