“A harmonious blend of Chardonnay with Pinot Noir, this gorgeous Champagne instantly appeals the eyes with a striking pale salmon hue. The nose continues to entice with freshly cut roses, and vibrant raspberries enlaced in graceful citrus tones, with a baker’s yeast note enhancing the backdrop. The mouthfeel is boldly fizzy while refreshing, with a delicious core of red fruits. Rich, supple and vibrant flavors of blood orange, red Bartlett pear, honey crisp apple, strawberries and cream, brioche, watermelon and spice linger on the seamless finish with a touch of pleasant almond skin counterpoint. It manages to stay delicious, clean, pure, elegant, savory, powerful and brilliant, all at the same time, venturing way past its humble cost.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
Champagne Bouquin Dupont began in 1929 through the acquisition of Paul Gaston Emile Dupont a vignoblle located on the land of Grand Crus of the Côte des Blancs. Dupont began winemaking in 1934. Today his grandson Dominique (3rd generation) does the farming and winemaking, and their holdings are currently spread over 4 Grand Cru villages of the Côte des Blancs; Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Cramant. Coming only from cherished sites, the grapes are carefully sorted, then pressed in the traditional way to collect the noblest juice. Each lot is fermented in small vats to respect the identity of soils. The aging of the wines on the lees is between 4-10 years in their cellars which carved out of chalk. After blending the wines are cellared for months for utmost satisfaction.
