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:
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.
