Bouchard embraces a revolutionary philosophy of bottling single vineyard, single variety (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc), and single vintage cuveés. Rather than blending different sources and vintages to make a single cuvée, as is the long-standing norm in Champagne, Bouchard prefers to make a wine that is representative of the vintage and place of origin. He seeks to create individual wines of great character each year from his single vineyard bottlings. Each wine is made only from juice from the first pressing, fermented only with indigenous yeast and handled meticulously in the cellar to guarantee the finest wines possible. He 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 produced with no dosage and with the goal of allowing the unique terroir of each wine to take center stage.Bouchard began his career in 2000 with only 1.37 hectares of vines in the village of Celles-sur-Ource in the Côte des Bar region of Champagne. His approach in the vineyards seeks to maximize quality every step of the way. Additionally, he farms organically, dramatically restricts yields (among the lowest in Champagne) and places extra emphasis on picking at the optimum moment. Bouchard has grown his initial holdings by working 1.47 hectares of vines owned by his father, which he farms with the same meticulous care as his own parcels. Although his father's holdings were originally bottled under the Inflorescence label, beginning in 2014 all cuvées are now bottled under the Roses de Jeanne label.Roses de Jeanne Val Vilaine - 100% Pinot Noir from the 1.5 hectare lieu-dit of Val Vilaine. 300-500 cases produced annually.
