Bernard Gaucher

 

 During the end of the nineteenth century, Paul Gaucher, married the daughter of a winemaker and moved to Arconville. He had dreams of growing a vineyard so it could be passed down for future generations to enjoy. His son, George would later purchase new plots and continue to chase after this dream. Soon vigneron became a trade passed down from father to son for 5 generations of the Gaucher family. Currently Georges' son Bernard Gaucher has taken the steps in order to grow their family made brand, from obtaining press, to developing the winery and expanding their cellars. Bernard took charge and currently runs everything from planting to labeling of the Champagne. 

In keeping with tradition of their Grower Champagne, and in an effort to maintain quality, most vine care is done by hand. Arconville, located South of the Champagne region, sits on clay and limestone which allows the Gaucher family to plant superior Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 

 The Champagne is matured in oak casts with weekly batonnage and partial malolactic fermentation then allowed to rest for six months after disgorgement to be aged to perfect maturity. With the Brut known for its personality and vivacious rich, round flavors it is soon to be a modern classic.
