1.5 Liters. Roses de Jeanne. "Grower Champagne" The 2010 Blanc de Noirs Les Ursules is all about textural breadth and volume. Gracious, silky and impeccably polished throughout, the Ursules stands out for its exceptional balance and harmony. White flowers, pears, mint and almonds meld into darker tonalities that become more prominent on the finish, where more red, Pinot-inflected nuances take center stage. This is the first release in which Les Ursules is a declared vintage Champagne. 94 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Magnum 1.5 Liters
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.
Cédric Bouchard is one of the fastest rising stars of Champagne. Having only started his own label in 2000, he has quickly earned a reputation as Champagne’s most talented new wine producer, and was awarded the title of Champagne’s finest winemaker for the year 2008 by the Gault Millau.
