Pascal Doquet took over the management of the parental winery in 1995. Chardonnay and some Pinot Noir are mainly grown here. The plots are spread over different locations with different soils: a little over 5 hectares in the Côte des Blancs, 1.67 hectares in the Grand Cru locations of Mesnil-sur-Oger (very chalky soils), over 2 hectares in Vertus and Bergères- les-Vertus (deeper soils with a higher proportion of clay), 1.2 hectares on Le Mont Aimé (yellow chalk, flint and sand) and about 3.5 hectares in Bassuet and Bassu (gray clay and chalk).
Pascal has been working organically since 2004, the winery is certified. He is convinced that this gave the wines a harmony and length that was not available before organic cultivation. Barrels have also been used to mature the wines since 2004; today 1/3 of the wines mature in oak. Before bottling, the wines are lightly filtered, but neither fined nor macerated cold. After the second fermentation, the wines mature on the yeast for a relatively long time compared to other winegrowers. Even the simple Blanc de Blancs is only released after three years, the vintage wines mature seven or more years.
Doquet champagnes are among the best on the Côte des Blancs and are characterized by an intense terroir expression and an elegant, mature harmony. Each cuvée represents its own terroir. Here you can perfectly discover the respective locations and the terroir of the Côte des Blancs and explore their differences.
