Derived from the 2019 vintage, Boréal is derived from north-facing holdings bringing the lean side of Pinot Noir. Wafting from the glass with scents of crisp pear, citrus oil, white flowers and buttery pasty, it’s medium to full-bodied, pillowy and chiselled, its fleshy core of fruit girdled by racy acids.

Originally from Beaune, Benoît Doussot arrived in Champagne in 2015 after a stint at Domaine Fichet in Meursault. Working at Vouette & Sorbée, he perceived that organic growers were selling their fruit to big houses and the local cooperatives for no premium, and he set out to change that. Today, Doussot works with some 12 hectares of vines, farmed by nine different vignerons, divided among 18 parcels. In sourcing, he’s looking for the second terrace of Kimmeridgian limestone; and all his cuvées are derived from a single vintage, a single grape variety and this same terrace, differentiated by their different expositions.
