About

Passion & Tradition

Champagne Jean Boucton is born out of close ties within the same family of producers, bringing together the knowledge and ‘savoir faire’ of different wine makers of our family to create a unique and exclusive range of high end Vintage and Cuvée Champagnes. Jean Boucton celebrates the traditional, bringing a history and a timeless heritage to today’s modern marketplace.



Our History

A timeless elegance

Jean Boucton originated in the village of Berru close to Reims with evidence of the Boucton family’s winemaking tradition dating back to as early as 1607 in the local Archives at a time when the region was producing still wines. Like many families in the Champagne region,  who had their vineyards decimated by the phylloxera outbreak or destroyed by the war, our vineyards were replanted during the middle of last century. Still based in the same village, we have been cultivating our land and traditions in the region for generations.

VINEYARD, BLENDING & SAVOIR FAIRE

It is rare that a wine coming from a single terroir and grape variety presents the sufficient balance between aroma, sugar and acidity necessary for the creation of elegant Champagne. Also, Blending is central to the Champagne making process.
We pay particular attention to the quality of the wines, the blend characteristics and the vintages used in the composition of the Jean Boucton Cuvees.
We work on an elegant range of four premium Champagnes:
- Jean Boucton Cuvée Blanc de Blancs, blended exclusively with Chardonnay,
- Jean Boucton Réserve Rosé,
- Jean Boucton Première Cuvée, blended largely with chardonnay, but also pinot noir and meunier, and is released on vintage years only,
- Jean Boucton 'Grand Heritage', a vintage Cuvée blended from grapes harvested on plots of land selected for the age of their vines and the quality of the soil. It is fermented in oak barrels and matured until it reaches its peak and can fully express its terroir.
These Champagnes are aged in the cellar for a minimum of four to five years for the Blanc de Blancs, Réserve Rosé and Première Cuvée and up to ten years or more for our ‘Grand Héritage’.
They come in bottle, magnum and jeroboam size depending on the Cuvee. 
Our range also includes a Ratafia de Champagne (Solera method - 1998).
