    About Doyard

    The Doyard family can trace their vinous roots to at least 1677. A marriage licence from that year lists Jean-Baptiste Doyard’s occupation as “winegrower”, and the family have had a presence in the Côte de Blancs village of Vertus ever since.

    It was not until 1927, however, that Maurice Doyard broke new ground for the family and crafted Champagne under their own label, thus signifying the official creation of Champagne Doyard almost a century ago. Four generations have now toiled amongst the most beautiful Chardonnay (and to a lesser extent Pinot Noir) vines in Grands and 1er Crus such as Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, Avize and Vertus itself as both winegrowers and winemakers.

    Guillaume Doyard currently helms his family estate following the tragic death of his older brother Charles in 2017 at the age of just 31. Recognised as an energetic and hugely talented vigneron, the young maestro crafts from his hallowed ancestral vineyards.

    Viniculture

    10 hectares in total, all of which are Grand or 1er Cru level, are farmed with strictly biodynamic processes including some diligent and ever-trusty Shire horses in lieu of tractors. This respect for the terroir is undoubtedly the first step in the long and painstaking process which results in incredible Champagnes of unfathomable concentration, complexity and depth. This house style has garnered Doyard one of the most zealous and consistent followings amongst those in the know.

    In the cellar, state-of-the-art Coquard PAI presses are employed to extract the cleanest and most delicate juice from individual parcels, which are all vinified separately in barrels. Extraordinarily, and a testament to the relentless drive for perfection, every single cuvée undergoes a minimum 48 months of lees ageing prior to disgorgement, developing the beguiling characteristics which can only be achieved using this method.

    With a total production of 40,000 bottles per vintage across all cuvées (compared to 500,000 by the mighty Krug), collectors can begin to understand why they may not have heard of such sensational Champagnes before today – those who have but are yet to succeed in securing them may also understand!

    Doyard Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Grand Cru 2012 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (97)

    Disgorged in May 2020 with two grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is fabulous, bursting from the glass with notes of smoky pear, white flowers, walnuts and baking spices. Derived predominantly from holdings in Avize, it's full-bodied, layered and immensely concentrated, with a tightly wound, structured core and racy acid spine that mark it out as emphatically built for the long haul. Deep and vinous, I suspect that it will surpass the 2008 rendition at maturity.

    Doyard Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Non Dose Revolution NV (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (94+)

    The forthcoming release of Doyard's NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Non Dosé Révolution is based on the 2013 vintage and was disgorged in May 2020. Unfurling in the glass with scents of pear, warm pastry, apricot, toasted almonds and citrus oil, it's full-bodied, layered and elegantly muscular, with a deep and multidimensional core, racy acids and a long, precise finish. This is an especially elegant, refined rendition of Révolution, and it will be well worth following over time.

    Doyard Extra-Brut Premier Cru Clos de l'Abbaye 2015 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (96+)

    Disgorged in January 2021 with two grams per liter dosage, the 2015 Extra-Brut Premier Cru Clos de l'Abbaye has turned out brilliantly. Wafting from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, warm bread and honeycomb that are still a little reserved after its recent disgorgement, this is a full-bodied, layered and concentrated Champagne that's vinous and textural, displaying notable depth and mid-palate amplitude that's framed by lively acids and an enlivening pinpoint mousse, concluding with a long resonant finish. As I've written before, this cuvée derives from a walled 0.4-hectare plot of 60-year-old cordon-pruned vines just behind the winery in Vertus, and only the first and second "serres" of the press are used.

    Wine Advocate (98)

    Disgorged over a year ago with 0.8 grams per liter dosage, the 2008 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Les Lumières is a striking Champagne, unwinding in the glass with scents of pear, citrus oil, freshly baked bread, mandarin orange, almonds and buttery pastry. Full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it's layered and muscular, with an immensely concentrated core of fruit, racy acids and a long, resonant finish. As I've written before, this cuvée is a blend of first-press juice: two-thirds Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger and one-third Pinot Noir from prime holdings in Aÿ.
