Champagne Doyard's roots trace back to the 17th century in the small village of Vertus in the Cotes des Blancs appellation of Champagne. Yannick Doyard took the helm in 1979 and his son Guiillaume has since taken over. They farm from the family's original domaine in Vertus, as well as sourcing their fruit from several Grand Cru villages. The family's focus on viticulture includes biodynamic farming. Plots are worked by horse and the yields are kept low making for a wine intense in style. Their Champagnes also spend at least 48 months on their lees The goal of Champagne Doyard is to make the most expressive terroir-driven wines possible. For this, we love their attention to detail.
Sourced from 45 year old vines strewn from many of the family's plots in the Cotes de Blancs. Several of the vineyards come from Grand Cru villages in Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, and Cramant. Almost half of the wine is aged in older Burgundy barrels, then ages on its lees for five years before its release for additional intensity.
