producer winegrower in Couvrot
Bourcier, a family story since 1968
Our first vines were planted in 1968 by our Grandfather Léon Bourcier. And there our story of Champagne begins... We aquired our present site of just over one third of an acre in 1991 and instantly decided to extend our wine growing area with the addition of our Grandfather’s vines. All throughout that first year and in all weathers we worked diligently, with passion, care and love, to raise 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, respecting totally 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, after these artists of production have shared, with us, their talents, we find ourselves finally at the moment when the « crus, cépages and vin de réserve », like some secret ritual, are subtly blended together to create their own unique distinctive styles. Each one of the « cuvees » in our selection reveals not only its own character, but also its own differences, thereby offerering you, the consumer, a wide range of flavours and aromas, rich and various, reflecting nature’s work of art.
A high quality Champagne
We create all our cuvees with a lot of passion. We propose a wide range of wines to charm 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.
