Our house champagne is one we import exclusively into Australia, Champagne Doyard. Nestled in the chardonnay village of Vertus in the Côtes des Blancs with ten hectares of vines, Champagne Doyard has a family history of viticulture dating backto 1677. Yannick Doyard has been making wine since he was 18 and since 1981 he has guided the fortunes of this small qualityminded grower Champagne house.
Small, obsessively fastidious and thoughtful Champagne producers like Doyard are rare and treasured, as he has a wine growing philosophy based on producing the best wines possible even if it contravenes fiscal sensibilities.
Meticulous care is taken in the vineyards and to ensure high quality fruit, 50% of the harvest is sold off. Only the first portionof the press is used and Doyard avoids chaptalisation, resulting in artisan wines that offer wonderful expression and a unique glimpse of what Champagne should be.
Doyard is a small, quality focused and highly sought-after grower estate. Exclusive import of City Wine Shop, this pours with a gentle, rolling bubble, letting the ripe white peach flavours and briny, chalky freshness shine through.
Made entirely from chardonnay with an impressive addition of 50% reserve wines for depth and richness. Slightly lower in pressure, it’s elegant and fine bead glides across the palate thanks to extended lees aging (a minimum of 48 months) performed on all cuvées.
