2012 Champagne

Marne Valley, Champagne, France

    Antoine Bouvet

  • What we love

    Mineral driven Champagne crafted from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, hailing from France’s most famous sparkling wine region. 40+ year vines give way to concentrated fruit, with crisp acidity and distinct minerality. Aged for six years before disgorgement adds complexity, leading to a ripe and toasty wine displaying flavors of yellow stone fruit, honey, almond, and abundant brioche notes, thanks to extensive contact with the lees.

About this Wine

Antoine Bouvet checks all the boxes for those seeking artisanal-scale Champagne: limited production, long lees aging, low dosage, loads of depth, terrific value. Only 70 cases made.

This is complex Champagne meant for the dinner table more so than the cocktail hour, though we certainly wouldn’t turn it away if someone offered it to us as an aperitif! Then again, there’s really no occasion, or meal, that’s not improved by good Champagne. Don’t you agree? Cheers!

Antoine Bouvet

Owner + Winemaker


Antoine Bouvet is a young winemaker who is already producing excellent Champagnes. After studying at the Lycée Viticole in Avize, Antoine began working for his grandparents’ estate before launching his own label in 2013.

For his entire portfolio, vinification takes place in oak barrels with the use of indigenous yeast and the wines undergo malolactic fermentation. There is no fining or filtering and each cuvée is allowed a period in contact with the fine lees. Farming practices adhere to strict organic and biodynamic methods, and annual production is around 6,000 bottles.
