Les Justices - 2018 - Jerôme Bourgeois
A few words from Maison Bourgeois-Diaz: "An evolved nose, reminiscent of Jura vins jaunes. On the palate, this oxidation is much more subtle, giving the wine superb complexity, combined with great sapidity and finesse, leaving a very fresh, long finish."

100% Pinot Meunier from biodynamically-grown vines, a massal selection planted in 1963 on clay-limestone soils. This is a vintage Champagne, using only the 2018 harvest, with grapes harvested by hand at high ripeness. Direct pressing in a traditional Coquard press, vinification in 3hl sandstone egg-shaped vats, malolactic fermentation, ageing on laths, aged under cork and disgorged on the 9th of May 2023, without dosage. The string is attached after disgorging, just a micro-dose of sulfur.

Jérôme took over the vines at the beginning of the 2000s from his parents, who had never bottled much wine...All wines
