Roses de Jeanne Coteaux Champenois


I think that this might be one of the most beautiful photos I've ever taken in my life. It was purely by chance, a quick snapshot in poor lighting just before we got down to actually tasting this wine yesterday.

This is one of two barrels of Roses de Jeanne 2008 Coteaux Champenois from Les Ursules—the stuff you see there that looks like flor is, actually, flor. Normal people tend to avoid this like the plague when making pinot noir, but then, Cédric Bouchard isn't exactly "normal", now, is he? He's left this barrel sitting there untouched, still on its lees from fermentation, and is entirely unconcerned about the growth on its surface. In fact, he says that it's helped to naturally protect the wine from oxidation, and considering how vibrant, vivid and pure the flavors of this wine are, it's difficult to argue. This is going to be exciting—this wine won't be released for a while, of course, but it will definitely be worth keeping an eye out for.

Great picture, Peter. Good angle and lots of curiosity for the viewer to take a close look.

Can’t wait to taste this, if I am lucky enough to obtain a bottle or two ;-).

Best,

/Thomas

Peter Liem said...

Thanks, Thomas.

Yeah, I like how wabi sabi it turned out. Fits in well with the aesthetic of Cédric's wines.

Will said...

Beautiful. I've never heard of such a thing.

ned said...

Really, a nice photo, and not only as an image but also for the added interest of the subject.

I've never seen a Coteaux Champenois in CA. sigh...

vinosseur said...

You are right Peter. The photo, and the subject matter, are really unique!

cheers

Jeremy said...

Hi Peter, great photo and quite interesting of Cedric to let that flor develop. Flor ferments ethanol into aldehydes, which initially might add to the complexity, but would carry a risk long term.
We routinely get small flor developments, but post malo, are quite determined to avoid them.

I look forward to trying this Coteaux Champenois. I'm only sorry that it's going to come at the cost of 600 less bottles of Roses de Jeanne Champagne in a really great vintage...
