Tasting notes for the Champagne "Inflorescence" Blanc de Noirs 2008 - Cédric Bouchard / Roses de Jeanne

  • EYE: Deep and shiny golden color with amber-ish reflections. The fine and persistent bubbles elegantly rise in the glass.
  • NOSE: Remarkable complexity on the nose. Intense aromas of ripe red fruits, such as cherry, along with a hint of plum, blend with spicy notes of black pepper and licorice. Nuances of toasted bread, nuts, and dark chocolate can also be discerned, a result of extended aging on the lees.
  • MOUTH: A velvety texture delicately caresses the palate. The rich flavors of the fruits unfold with intensity, offering remarkable depth and complexity. Notes of cocoa, coffee, and licorice add gourmet and spicy nuances. A beautiful acidity brings freshness and balance, while the structure is elegant and harmonious. The finish is long and persistent, leaving a pleasant and slightly spicy sensation.

 

In short: The Champagne "Inflorescence" Blanc de Noirs 2008, produced by Cédric Bouchard under his Roses de Jeanne label, is a champagne of great expressiveness and exceptional quality. Made exclusively from black grapes, it offers a complex aromatic profile and a remarkable structure. Its extended aging provides it with unique depth and elegance. It is an ideal champagne for lovers of characterful wines, who will appreciate its intense aromas and velvety texture. It pairs perfectly with rich dishes such as game, roasted meats, and aged cheeses.

A rebirth of Champagne

 

The Champagne house "Les Roses de Jeanne", founded by Cédric Bouchard in honor of his grandmother, is fairly young. This estate and its less than 2 hectares of vineyard were created in the year 2000, on the commune of Celles-sur-Ource, in the Côte des Bar. Cédric has always been on a mission: to produce the purest champagne possible. The man is not very fond of bubbles, so you won't find too much of them in his bottles. He also wants to reduce the impact of wooden barrel aging on his vintages, to make sure that the taste of wine is not altered. In his eyes, precision and strength are key.

Cédric Bouchard is a very discreet man but his champagnes have made quite the bang when they were first released. He became one of the most iconic winemakers in the region overnight, with his particular style going against everything the bigger Champagne houses are currently trying to do. He recently switched to biodynamics, which reduces his already low output. Only 3,600 bottles are made every year by this tiny estate. Needless to say, champagne buffs are fighting tooth and nail to acquire one of his famous cuvées.
