Cédric Bouchard/Roses de Jeanne

Celles-sur-Ource, Champagne • France

Having started his own label only in 2000, Cédric Bouchard has quickly earned a reputation as Champagne’s most talented new wine producer. In 2008, he was awarded the title of Champagne’s finest winemaker of the year by the Gault Millau.

As Antonio Galloni noted in Vinous in March 2020:

I have been a huge fan of Cédric Bouchard’s Champagnes since I first tasted them in the 2004 vintage. I especially remember the Haute-Lemblée that year, which I gave a stellar write up to, along with a correspondingly high score. That review caused a minor uproar.…Back then high scores in Champagne were reserved for the likes of Krug, Dom Pérignon and Roederer. “How can a grower Champagne get such a high score?” I heard from readers. Well, these are quite simply some of the most singular wines made anywhere in the world, that’s how. Even since that moment, I have bought as much of these Champagnes as I can find and afford every year.

Cédric embraces a revolutionary philosophy of bottling single-vineyard, single-varietal (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, or Pinot Blanc), and single-vintage cuvées. Each wine is made only from juice from the first pressing and fermented only with indigenous yeast. Cédric believes in a long, slow, and cool second fermentation, which creates smaller, finer bubbles and helps to enhance the vinosity of the underlying wine. The wines are all produced with no dosage and with the goal of allowing the unique terroir of each wine to take center stage.
