Roses de Jeanne, Blanc de Noirs. "Grower Champagne" The 2010 Roses de Jeanne Blanc de Noirs Côte de Béchalin is terrific. Finely cut and lifted, the 2010 is full of character. Mirabelle, kirsch, hard candy and sweet floral notes give the wine its exotic personality. As is often the case, the Côte de Béchalin is a wine of crystalline purity and tension. The 2010 is a bit quirky, but it is also delicious. Disgorged in April 2017 with no dosage. 93 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous December 2017
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 beginning, he embraced a revolutionary philosophy: single vineyard, single variety (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc), single vintage, zero dosage Champagnes.
Bouchard farms organically, dramatically restricts yields (among the lowest in Champagne), and places extra emphasis on picking at the optimum moment.
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.
