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.
