CEDRIC BOUCHARD (11) INFLORESCENCE BRUT BLANC DE NOIRS VAL VILAINE

Cedric Bouchard’s policy of “one variety, one parcel, one harvest” certainly puts him in the vanguard of the young Turks that are challenging Champagne’s traditional norms. All of Cedric’s wines are exciting and original; unfortunately the Val Vilaine is only cuvée of his that is plentiful enough for us to feature. It is composed of 100% Pinot Noir from the three and a half acre, south-facing Val Vailane vineyard situated in the Aube district near the village of Polisy. Like the rest of the Bouchard line-up this Blanc de Noirs was neither fined or filtered and received no dosage. It is a singularly attractive Champagne that charms the senses with a very floral bouquet suggestive of lavender and dusty rose petals. The palate proffers wonderfully pure and beautifully rendered yellow plum, red currant, and brown spice flavors that glide gently over the tongue. Despite the lack of dosage, this Champagne’s overall impression is one of profound purity rather than of austerity. A gratifying experience and one that should not be missed.
