Grower Champagne Tasting: Bourgeois Diaz Rose and Brut Distingue

Grower Champagne Tasting: Bourgeois Diaz Rose and Brut Distingue

Join us alongside Michel Abood, sales representative for Vinotas Selections for a Grower Champagne Tasting: Bourgeois Diaz Rose and Brut Distingue on Monday, December 29th from 5 to 8 PM.

Champagne Bourgeois-Diaz is a tiny family-owned estate farming their own 7 hectares (17.29 acres), scattered in the hills around the town of Crouttes-sur-Marne, west-south-west of Reims. The vineyards are planted on clay and chalk soils, and composed of 55% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay and have a south-west exposition. All the wines are made using a traditional Coquard basket press, with a minimal dosage (5-9g/l for the Brut). 2/3 of the Cuvée Brut Distingué and Brut Rosé is fermented in stainless steel, the balance in barrel. The higher end bottlings see some more barrel ageing.
Jérome Bourgeois, the young winemaker, believes in showcasing his terroirs, and this is evident in the final product, which is both reflective of the high quality fruit he gets and a platform for the land’s characteristics.
As of 2009, the winery began treating its lands using biodynamic principles, and was fully certified in 2011.
