The richness of the 2000 vintage is expressed through the selection of Grands and Premiers Crus grapes, offering a beautiful maturity and an exceptional intensity despite a contrasting weather during the year 2000. As always for Boizel Champagnes, only the purest juice – the first press – was used. The robe is brilliant golden yellow, with fine, creamy mousse and a delicate persistant cordon. The bouquet is intense, concentrated with fresh floral fragrances (hawthorn), magnificent and mature fruit aromas (pineapple, yellow peach, apricot) and delicate notes of pastry. Some rare vegetal hints (lemony verbena) appears with candied citrus and beautiful notes of dried fruits, almonds, hazelnuts and sweet spices (cinnamon). The texture is silky, supported by smooth and creamy effervescence. The mouth integrates with finesse the complex aromatic register. The fruit aromas are confirmed (pineapple, apricot, touch of candied angelica) and are enriched by subtle nuances of cassis, cherries and exquisite notes of orange with a light andwelcomed bitterness. The finish is long, reflecting the fine balance between purity, freshness, richness and complexity.
Founded in 1834, Champagne Boizel has cultivated excellence since its origins by respecting the values of authenticity and commitment to the best quality. In 180 years of existence, this family house has forged its reputation on the subtlety of its blends and the finesse of its different Champagnes. Then as now, each generation pursues the adventure by combining respect of tradition with a capacity for innovation to continue to produce Champagnes that are constantly more refined and more appealing. The involvement of the family in all stages of production, from the vine to the glass, and the family’s deep roots in Epernay, in the heart of Champagne, are two major strengths for the House. This love for Champagne and the passionate pursuit of finesse, character and elegance in the wines are authentic family values.
