Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Vielles Vignes Cuvée Dom – Champagne Bouquin-Dupont.
A while ago we published an overview of some of the wines imported by a young French entrepreneur in the Netherlands: Ad Libitum Vins. In this review we highlight one of the wines out of that selection, a top of class Champagne by Champagne Bouquin Dupont.
About the Winery
Since the beginning of Champagne, Bouquin-Dupont Fils Champagnes (est. 1929) have enjoyed great notoriety throughout France. This artisanal producer does not hesitate to put out different cuvées made by their champagne house in Avize to the delight of Chardonnay Grands Crus lovers.
The family’s work started with Paul Emile Gaston Dupont’s acquisition of a vineyard located on the avid terroir “Grand Cru de la Côté des Blancs”.
About the Wine
This Champagne is the family’s pinnacle. A Grand Cru from Avize, made from old vines, showcasing the best this village has to offer.
A quote from our Nadine:
As a real champagne lover this one left a little space in my heart. It had everything an outstanding Champagne needs to have!
This Grand Cru Blanc des Blancs possesses an in-depth and wide palette of numerous flavors that bounce around on your tongue. From hazelnut and almond to brioche and fresh morning toast, the complex finish of lemon butter makes it an amazing glass of champagne. The crispy and yet citrusy first taste with the very much in dept smell of hazelnuts and brioche. The smell of fresh brioche and toast with apricot marmalade takes you directly to the Champagne region.
We award this excellent Grand Cru with a 93-point DWA score.
This Champagne by Bouquin-Dupont Fils is imported in the Netherlands by Ad Libitum Vins. You can order it directly on their website. This wine is reviewed by our own Nadine Massen.
