Champagne Bauchet – Cuvée Signature Premier Cru

Guide VERON des Champagnes 2016

(around 20 euros per bottle)

Sober and elegant look.

Aspect :

·        Golden and bright.
·        Particularly fine bubbles.
·        Delicate bead of foam, persistent.

Nose :

·        Radiant and sensual.
·        Subtle fragrances of citrus fruits, nice ripe apple and pear, almond, hazelnut and white flowers, underlined by a breath of freshness, signatures of the Chardonnay (80%), chosen in Grauves and Bisseuil, interlace the generous scents of Pinot Noir (20%) selected in Bisseuil, with its notes of red and black fruits (cassis, raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry) and soft spices, in a heady harmony.
·        Later, the cuvée reveals its emerging maturity, with touches of caramel and toast, results of the ageing on laths of the bottles before disgorgement.

Palate :

·        Neat attack thanks to the judicious selection of the first juices (cuvée) during the soft pressing of the grapes harvested by hand.
·        The mouth is then slowly revealed, sensual, reinforced by the judicious fulfillment of the malolactic fermentation of the base wines and the accurate dosage with 8 g/L of sugar added at disgorgement, enhanced by the creamy effervescence.
·        Tasty and balanced finish.
·        Remarkable length on the palate.

Bruno Charlemagne, Chef de Cave of the Champagne House Bauchet, was able to blend with talent different vintages (79% from 2012 and 21% from 2011) to compose a high-level Cuvée Signature Premier Cru, touching interpretation of the Premier Cru terroirs of Bisseuil and Grauves.

To taste from aperitif to meal, to accompany a steamed gilthead bream, for example.

Fourth generation of artisan wine growers settled in Bisseuil in the Mountain of Reims, the Champagne House Bauchet passionately cultivates its vineyard of 34 hectares planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. A controlled oenology, in the deep respect of the champenois traditions, gives birth to around 250,000 bottles of great quality Champagnes each year, variations inspired around the seven terroirs of the House.
