Francis Boulard

Francis Boulard

Francis Boulard is a champagne producer whose champagne house is relatively young and at the same time, as a descendant of a winemaking family going back 6 generations, has many years of experience.

Founded in 2009 by Francis Boulard together with his wife and daughter, after his brothers choice for different career paths resulted in the closing of his father's, Raymond Boulard,winery, Francis Boulard then focused on the implementation of organic viticulture on his estate, a rarity in Champagne, which has only a very small proportion of organic wineries.

Today the whole estate is certified organic and in parts also biodynamically, in total 3 hectares of vineyards are cultivated, these are divided into 1.6 hectares located in the Saint-Thierry massif, 0.5 hectares in Mailly (both belonging to the Montagne de Reims) and 1.2 hectares, which are old family property and the historical heart of the vineyards, are situated in the Vallée de la Marne.

This distribution allows the winery to benefit from three key terroirs, namley the heavier, richer soils of the Marne, which grow Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay; the siliceous limestone soils of the Saint Thierry massif and the Mally Pinot Noir.

The vineyards are managed organically and additionally methods of biodynamic viticulture are used, e.g. the use of biodynamic preparations (plant teas or similar) or the lunar calendar is used to determine important working steps such as bottling or batonnage (stirring up the yeast in wooden barrels).

Another unique feature of the estate is that the grapes are picked fully ripe, which results in base wines that strongly ressemble still wines - the champagnes from Francis Boullard et Fille therefore show a particularly vinous style, and are also characterized by very low or no dosages at all.

Delphine Boulard took over from her father in 2016 and introduced changes regarding the process of fermentation and maturation, which has since been carried out in used Burgundy casks and a few large casks (Foudres), while her father used a wider range of wooden cask sizes for these steps.

The wines are separated according to origin and variety, fermented spontaneously, which means with the  yeasts naturally occurring in cellar and vineyard, in order to preserve and develop the individuality of each location and each terroir as best as possible.

Facts: R.M., Faverolles-et-Coemy, Vallée de la Marne, 3,3 ha, 25.000 bottles/year

Organic certification: FR-BIO-01
