Pascal started making wine at his family's estate in 1995 and established Champagne Pascal Doquet in 2004 when his father retired. He farms just under 9 hectares of vines including prime parcels in Vertus, Le Mont Aimé and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Natural farming and dedication to vineyard health is integral to Pascal and the domaine has been certified organic since 2010. Plant-based treatments are more commonly used as Pascal seeks to reduce his use of even copper and sulfur. He fully believes that his focus on vineyard management allows him to express subtleties of his terroir and to make honest wines. We think you can definitely taste the difference!
Champagne boasts some of the world’s greatest luxury brands with Krug, Cristal and, of course, Dom Perignon. But it’s also home to hundreds of small dynamic producers—farmers who grow their own grapes (often organically) and make (often with natural methods) tiny amounts of pure and absolutely delicious wine that reflect the individual personalities of their villages and terroirs. Toast with these wines, for sure. But also treat them like the great wines they are: taste, drink, explore!
