Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Benoit is a 5th generation winemaker turning to very innovative and anything-but-conventional methods at his family domaine. The conversion to organics and biodynamics aside, his vineyard practice employs horses and aromatherapy, and to walk around the cellar you’ll find barrels painted purple and small Buddhas perched as if to watch over the room. It is easy to tell he takes great care in every step of what he does, in hopes, and execution, of finding balance not just in his winemaking, but also in life.
Bouzy is a Grand Cru Village located in the Montagne de Reims region of Champagne, located on the western side of Ambonnay. Benoit farms two parcels that are less than 3 acres combined. The wine sees barrels aging between two and nine years and finished with little to no sulfur depending on the vintage.
