winegrower & producer in Couvrot
Bourcier, a family affair since 1968
Our first vines were planted in 1968 by our Grandfather Léon Bourcier. And so begins our story in the Champagne...
We aquired our present site of just over one third of an acre in 1991 and instantly decided to extend our wine growing area by exploiting our Grandfather’s vines. All throughout the year and in all weathers we work diligently, with passion, care and love, to grow our Chardonnay grapes whilst giving total respect to the « terroir ».
Our champagne domain
In 2013, in collaboration with four expert wine growers and an experienced local farmer, we created the « Pressoir de Gravelines », a new pressing centre where we now press not only our own grapes, but also those of other growers.
Our passion at your disposal
The grape juice is transported to our co-operatives who take our wines through the next delect step of fermentation and processing prior to being bottled and distributed to our wine merchants. By blending together ancient techniques and new modern technology we are able to ensure that each stage of this process is strictly supervised and controlled in fine detail, with the utmost respect for the age-old tradition of the « Méthode Champenoise ».
The harmonising of all these procedures truly expresses the spirit of « Les Maisons de Champagne ».
Each passing year, like artists sharing their talents, we all gather at the same time and subtly blend together the vintages, grape varieties and reserve wines in order to create their own unique distinctive styles that reflect nature’s work.
Through these ritual-like exchanges, each one of the “cuvees” in our selection reveals not only its own character, but also its own differences, offering you a wide range of rich and various flavours & aromas.
A high quality Champagne
We create all our cuvees with a lot of passion. We propose a wide range of wines to please your taste buds: from rosé to demi-brut, not to mention the famous Ratafia de Champagne, you will easily find the Champagne that suits you.
You can visit us at our domain all year long. We are located in the heart of the vineyards from Vitry-le-François, named "coteaux vitryats". We will be pleased to welcome you and we will present our work, our products around a good tasting session! We are selling our products directly at our showroom. Obviously, if you can't move to our domain, it is possible to order some boxes. If you are interested, please send us an email with your order form. We remain at your disposal should you need any advice.
In order to certify our efforts in the promotion of wine tourism and quality, we have joined the label « Vignobles et découvertes » created by Atout France, the French tourist office. It helps visitors aknowledge tourist activities around wine, which will make you understand this specific sector by meeting wine producers. We are thus able to certify all our professionalism with our products and services. Moreover, we are also certified as "Sustainable Winegrower in Champagne" and “High Environmental Value” for the quality of our grapes and our approach in wine-growing.
