Aromas of fresh baguette, almonds, dried flowers and thyme are underpinned by floral notes, pear and hints of red fruit. Supple and lively on the palate, with notes of small red fruits and a suggestion of biscuits. Lovely structure and balanced with a long, round finish.
When most Champagne wine-growers own on average 2.5 hectares of vineyards, the Bauchet family estate covers 34 hectares spread out on 7 different terroirs. The vineyards are located on the Côte des Blancs, the Montagne de Reims and in the Côte des Bar, and are planted exclusively with noble grape varieties.9 hectares of Premier Cru are located in Grauves (Côte des Blancs), and in Bisseuil (Montagne de Reims). The Chardonnay grapes cover the whole of the Grauves vineyards and the majority of the Bisseuil area, leaving a few areas for the Pinot Noir.25 hectares, with mostly Pinot Noir, grow in the Côte des Bar in Bar sur Seine, Bragelone-Beauvoir (near the Riceys), in Saulcy, in Vitry le Croisé and in Bligny. The partial replanting of vines which is done each year, allows the Domaine to have strong and healthy vines which are on average 20 years old.
