Since its inception in 2000, winemaker Cédric Bouchard and his domaine Roses de Jeanne had the foresight to embrace terroir-driven expressions of Champagne. Bouchard’s impact was immediate, and soon many began to join him in his philosophy of single vineyard, single variety, single vintage, and zero dosage Champagne. Today he now crafts 7 cuvées in this manner and continues to dramatically restrict yields and emphasize cooler second fermentations in the cellar to create a more vinous leaning style. 

Formerly known as Infloresence, Val Vilaine, is a blanc de noirs comes from a south-facing 1.49ha plot of vines in Polisy planted in 1974 owned by Cédric's father. If there's such a thing as an 'entry level' Champagne in Bouchard's lineup, this is it. Historically more approachable when young than Bouchard's other wines, Val de Vilaine, is now more tightly wound and concentrated as the already small yields were nearly halved to 26hl/ha bringing it in line with the other cuvées of Roses de Jeanne. Here you'll find a classic expression of Polisy terroir.
