Dominique Boulard Champagne
19th May 2014
You may not have heard of Dominique Boulard Champagne before. That’s because M. Boulard doesn’t let much of it out of France.
When you try it, you’ll understand why.
Every grape is picked by hand, so neither fruit nor vine is damaged. Each of the three classic Champagne grape varieties are grown on M. Boulard’s own land. His vines grow on a perfect south-facing slope of the Vallée de la Marne, in the Grand Cru village of Mailly, and in a hamlet called – aptly – Paradis.
To avoid the residue from pips and stalks that can end up in mainstream champagnes and cause that acid and bitter aftertaste, the grapes are lightly pressed to produce a clear, pure, delicious grape juice.
A well-rounded Champagne that is the perfect apéritif. Clean and fresh on the palate with surprising length, a fine, persistent mousse and citrus finish.
70% Pinot Meunier, 20% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay.
MAILLY GRAND CRU
The best Champagne grapes are grown in just 17 villages, one of which is Mailly-Champagne. Both nose and palate are subtle combinations of fruit, zest, honey and hazelnut. Delicate and complex.
90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay
Made the traditional way by macerating the skins from pinot noir grapes in Champagne. The result is a bright, salmon-pink Champagne with complex fruits and hints of caramel.
50% Pinot Noir, 50% Pinot Meunier
Champagne at its peak. Pale gold with a subtle mousse. A fresh attack rounds into a rich combination of candied fruit, hints of plum brandy and praline
Chardonnay 60%, Pinot Noir 30%, Pinot Meunier 10%
