Cédric Bouchard's 2013 Blanc de Noirs "Les Ursules" is pure Pinot Noir from a north-facing 0.97-hectare vineyard planted on clay limestone in 1974. The 2013 is concentrated on the nose, with lots of quinces and red fruits. On the palate, this is a mouth-filling, generously rich and concentrated yet fine and elegant Les Ursules with lots of energy and persistent mineral tension. The finish is very long and intense yet delicate, with no aggression at all. The acidity lifts the ripeness in a fascinating way here. There is great finesse and purity here but also fruitiness and endless salinity! Just beautiful! Total production: 2,800 bottles plus 400 magnums. (RobertParker. com)

The 2013 Roses de Jeanne Blanc de Noirs Les Ursules is one of the most accessible of these wines today. Creamy, open-knit and gracious, the Ursules is graced with tremendous purity in its fruit and soft contours that make the wine easy to drink and enjoy, even at this early stage. It is hugely enjoyable right now. (Antonio Galloni/Vinous)



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.
