Founded in 1834 by a Champagne family passionate about the wines of its region, the Boizel House was established in Épernay, in the heart of the Champagne region. Even before the creation of the House, the Boizels cultivated vineyards in some of Champagne’s best-known crus such as Avize, Aÿ and Etoges. Detailed knowledge of Champagne’s terroir has been developed over generations. This allows Boizel access to grapes from the best crus of the region, essential in creating great Champagnes. From the vineyards to the cellars, decisions are made with respect for the natural qualities of the wine. Long lees aging, low dosage and the use of the first pressing only preserves the freshness and finesse apparent in each of the cuvées. Florent Roques-Boizel, the 6th generation and current CEO, maintains the traditional know-how, dynamism and modernity that have always been at the center of Boizel’s constant quest for excellence. Throughout Boizel’s history, a love for Champagne and the passionate pursuit of finesse, character and elegance are showcased in each of their special Champagnes. 92pts Wine Spectator 12/19 2008V 91pts Wine & Spirits 12/18 Year's Best Champagnes 2007VView all products by BoizelCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
