Cedric Bouchard

Champagne, France | website

Cedric Bouchard is one of Champagnes rising stars. In a revolutionary approach for Champagne, Bouchard creates unique wines with great character, drawing inspiration from the top Burgundy producers, as well as contemporaries in Champagne. Each cuvee is made from a single vineyard, single variety and single vintage, and is closer to Burgundy in character than Champagne – small, fine bubbles, bottles at lower pressure with no dosage, rich full flavors expressing the terroir of each plot.

Cedric Bouchard Cote de Bechalin 2008

$95.00

Sold out

"The clear highlight among these new releases, the 2008 Blanc de Noirs Côte de Béchalin is deep, powerful and beautifully layered in the glass. Resonant and generous yet with remarkable translucence, the 2008 is impeccable in its balance. There is plenty of nuance in the orchard fruit flavors, but above all else, the 2008 impresses with its total sense of harmony and proportion. The exuberant, racy finish only adds to the wine's inviting personality. Disgorged: April 2015." Antonio Galloni

Cedric Bouchard Cote de Val Vilaine

$80.00

"Slate, pear, crushed rocks and mint are some of the notes that inform Bouchard's NV (2012) Côte de Val Vilaine. A very classic, Burgundian-inflected element of reduction is present in the aromatics, so the 2012 needs to be opened at least an hour or two in advance. With time in the glass, the flavors become more precise as the textures open up. This is the most vibrant of Bouchard's Pinot Noir Champagnes." Antonio Galloni

650 bts only made – 3 rows of vines, crushed by foot

"Bouchard's 2011 Blanc de Noirs Creux d'Enfer Rosé is fabulous. Lifted and gracious in the glass, the 2011 offers up a compelling mélange of orange peel, cranberry, autumn leaves, white pepper, blood orange and savory herbs. In 2011, the Creux d'Enfer is intensely aromatic, but also quite restrained next to some of the more overt vintages. The Creux d'Enfer is 100% Pinot Noir, crushed by foot and aged in steel. Like all the Bouchard Champagnes, the Creux d'Enfer is bottled with no fining, filtration and zero dosage. It remains one of the most compelling wines in all of Champagne. Disgorged: April 2015."
