The Bouquin Dupont Fils estate has origins as far back as 1929, when Paul Emile Gaston Dupont acquired a vineyard located in the prestigious terroir of Avize, known as the “Grand Cru de la Côte des Blancs”. The winemaking of their own grapes began in 1934. After him, his daughter Lillianne continued this tradition in 1968, working closely with her husband Michel Bouquin and producing wines under the Bouquin-Dupont label. Their champagne production is rooted in a family tradition, without resorting to artificial interventions or harmful substances.
It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine essentially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it has in common with the rest of the wines) takes place in fermentation vats; the second, however, takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second process, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles upon uncorking).
Intense straw yellow color with a golden hue. On the nose a complex floral bouquet with notes of orange blossom and citrus scents that recall mandarins, grapefruit and yellow orange. Added to this are spicy nuances of white pepper and aromas of aromatic herbs such as sage and rosemary, while the finish offers sensations of custard, butter and toasted almonds.
It can be accompanied by fish, shellfish, cheeses, appetizers and desserts. Furthermore, it is perfect for celebrating special occasions or for an informal toast with friends.
