Born in 1977, Jérôme Bourgeois-Diaz is the worthy representative of the fourth generation of winegrowers on his father's side. And as tradition is in his blood, he felt the need to go beyond it. His Spanish maternal origins pushed him to take a different path from that of his colleagues. His wife, Charlotte, joined the estate in 2016, and today plays an important role, supervising the estate, and helping to develop the quality of the Champagnes. “Of our 6.80 hectares of vines, 3.5 hectares are planted with Pinot Meunier, 2 with Pinot Noir and 1.3 with Chardonnay. Our vines are 40 years old on average, and draw their vitality from their clay and chalky soils.”
Pesticide-free since 2009 and certified organic and biodynamic since 2014, Jérôme's mantra is to let the wine express itself at its own pace.
At the estate, nature is in charge, and Jérôme wants to be at its service. He thus willingly accepts the vacillations of the seasons, he learns humility little by little.
Champagne Bourgeois Diaz has been producing six champagnes and one red wine on the Champagne hillside since 2018. The majority of champagnes age between two and three years in the bottle, with the vintage more than five years. We obviously find the classic blends in BD3C, the different whites of blacks (BDN) and whites of meuniers (BDM. A white of whites with BDB. But also rarer and more confidential expressions of exceptional vintages like in Les Justice and Les Bien Aimées .
