Tasting Notes

From Grand Cru vineyards in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Pascal Doquet produces beautiful and elegant Chardonnay base Champagne. The base for this wine is from 2009. This is a generous, showy style of Champagne with a brioche nose and rich fruit flavors that carry through to the palate.

Staff Pick Notes

A winemaker since 1982, Pascal Doquet managed the family domaine from 1995 to 2003. In 2004, he became independent after buying his sister's share of the family domaine and then began to produce champagne under his own label: Pascal Doquet. Pascal works his 8.66 hectares vineyard using organic farming practices, and he has been certified since 2010. His champagnes are elegant and deep, expressing the vintage and the land. The Diapason Grand Cru is gorgeous -- it shows complexity in the form of fresh baked croissant, chocolate pastry, and late harvest grape flavors. A champagne "de Grande Classe," if you ask me.
