Wine Region: Champagne - France
Tasting notes: The Chardonnay grapes come from five plots from the historic heart of Mesnil sur Oger. A compressed bouquet rich in finesse, notes of slate, almonds and butter pastry, floral touch, and linden blossom. Enormously complex on the palate, perfectly balanced, very subtle, graceful and gripping. A champagne of extra class!
About the winery:
With holdings of old vines in some of the greatest terroirs in the Cote des Blancs, Pascal Doquet has emerged over the last decade as one of the premier vignerons in Champagne. After he took over his family estate, Doquet-Jeanmaire, in 1995 when his father retired, Pascal established his eponymous Domaine in 2004. Today he farms just under 9 hectares of vines including prime parcels in Vertus, Le Mont Aime, and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Natural farming and dedication to vineyard health is the driving force for Pascal. The Domaine has been certified Organic since 2010.
