Alice and Quentin Beaufort

is a domaine created in 2007.

Burgundy: it all started  when Alice and Quentin Beaufort took  over a vineyard at Prusly sur Ource, in Cote d'Or, in Bourgogne. The terroir there, only a few miles from Champagne, is particularly suited for Pinot Noir and the climatic conditions of Prusly recall those of Polisy, a little village in Champagne-Ardenne, in the north east of France.

Champagne: Quentin Beaufort‘s Champagne is timeless. A composer of wine, able to make difficult things pleasant, Quentin Beaufort is an emerging artist, reminding the great unappreciated and his winery is located in Polisy, in the Aube department.

Terroirs:
Burgundy: rich of clay and limestone. Marine soils
Champagne: clay and limestone

Grape varieties:
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay

Age:  
Burgundy: vineyards planted between 1996 and 2003
Champagne:

  • Pinot Noir: 1972
  • Pinot Noir: 1992
  • Chardonnay: 2003-2004-2020

Area: 
Burgundy:
a distinc ventilation and organic properties characterize the middle land between Burgundy and Champagne. The vineyards there are exposed to east, south, south-west both in Burgundy and in Burgundy Reserve, and south-east in le Petit Beaufort. The land is very beautiful and quiet, geologically renowned and far from the public eye.
Champagne: the area, with its south-east facing hills and good ventilation, is particularly suitable for wine-growing, protected as it is by the warmth of the sun at the end of the day. Le Jardinot and Saint Firmin are plots in Policy,close to Cote d'Ore and Chablis.

Target:
the main concern of the domaine is both to rediscover the aura of taste, moving up the idea of the industrial product, and to nourish the land with sincere passion respecting the course of nature and painting wines that taste of sea.
