Cedric Bouchard, Roses de Jeanne Cote de Bechalin Brut 2011
Like the Val Vilaine, this wine comes from 35 year old vines on south-west facing slopes with a limestone clay base on the Cote de Bechalin, a lieu-dit in Celles-sur-Ource. Disgorged with zero dosage (like all of Cedric's champagnes) after six years bottle age in April 2018. There is a great purity to the wine, it's incredibly fresh, feels very close to the grape, with lovely minty notes, beautifully textures and long with gentle bitters on the finish. Best carafed. For drinking now to 2023.
100% Pinot Noir
