Based entirely on the 2009 vintage (indicated as V 09 on the back label) and disgorged in April 2016, Bouchard's NV Côte de Béchalin Blanc de Noir Pinot Noir displays a beautifully ripe, clear and elegant bouquet with raisin aromas and chalky flavors. Whereas the nose is enormously subtle and refined, the mouth-filling palate is full-flavored, round and intense—full of tension and expression. This Côte de Béchalin is enormously fresh and elegant, bloody young and powerful, but also very complex and mineral. A great Champagne with grip and ageing potential. I would keep it at least for another year. (RobertParker.com)



Cédric Bouchard began to produce haute couture Champagne in outlying village of Champagne called Celles-sur-Ource in Aube in 2000. Many of young producers are inspired by Jacque Selosse and they are proud of that, but Cédric Bouchard is not under the influence of Selosse(they respect each other though) and takes different approach to express the terroir and it is more like burgundy wines. He produces Champagne from single vineyard, single grape varietal and single vintage with extreme low yields. Bottle pressure is managed at 4.5 atmospheres to not cover delicacy of wines. (normally champagne has 6 atm). One of the most sought-after grower Champagne all over the world today.



Cédric Bouchard has only been making wine since 2000, yet his Champagnes are already among the most sought-after in the region. At his tiny Roses de Jeanne estate, named for his grandmother Janika, he produces polished, richly expressive Champagnes that are more Burgundian than classically Champenois in sensibility. Each wine is from a single grape variety, single vineyard and single vintage, involving no blending of any kind.

From a south-facing parcel of Pinot Noir, planted in 1974, this is rich and ripe, with a vibrant, mouthfilling depth of fruit. It’s exuberant without being at all blowsy, and is firmly pinned down by its zesty acidity and stoney, flinty minerality. (Decanter)



Cedric Bouchard remains at the forefront of innovation in Champagne. Yields are minuscule, even by the most exacting definition. The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts and are bottled unfined and unfiltered with no dosage. Bouchard is adamant that he wants to stay at a size where he alone can do all of the work.
