Cedric Bouchard Roses De Jeanne Blanc De Blancs La Boloree 2015

"""\""Very old and rare Pinot Blanc from a 0.217 hectare lieu-dit known as La Boloree. Bouchard was initially uninterested in the parcel, but it landed in his lap after he drew the shorter straw in a dual between growers. Today, it is perhaps his most cherished site. Extremely limited production. In the late 1990s, ex-sommelier and visionary Cedric Bouchard took over his father's vines in the Cote des Bar and established Champagne Roses de Jeanne in 2000. Since the took over his father's vines in the Cote des Bar and established Champagne Roses de Jeanne in 2000. Since the beginning, he embraced a revolutionary philosophy: single vineyard, single variety (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc), single vintage, zero dosage Champagnes.

His meticulous approach is maintained in the cellar. Only juice from the first pressing (free run) is used, and all fermentations are carried out with indigenous yeast. Long, slow and cool second fermentation creates smaller, finer bubbles, and helps to enhance the vinosity and precision of these delicious and singular Champagnes.\"" - Importer""" read more
