A nice surprise in the vineyards

Thanks to a particular grape variety, Bernard Bosseau has been able to make a name for himself in the region and beyond.

When Bernard Bosseau took over the Domaine de la Planta in 1997, he carried out a small inspection of the vines in the spring, when the vines started to grow. On his plot of Pinot Noir, he noticed that the leaves of his vines were covered with a fine whitish down. Convinced that he had made a mistake in treatment, he rushed to the estate where he met a winegrower and friend of the region. When he shows him a leaf, the latter reassures him by confirming that it is simply a specific variety: Pinot Meunier. "I didn't know that there was this grape variety on the farm! This Pinot is the grape variety that cannot be ignored on the coast of Reims in Champagne, it is used to produce Blanc de Noirs". As soon as he heard the good news, Bernard Bosseau knew he would be bottling sparkling wine. Thus, the first bubbles started to sparkle in 1998. In 2001, he won the Great Gold Medal in Verona for his first vintage. "Champagne has really helped me to make a name for myself and to position myself in the market."
