Few would argue that Krug is the one of the finest of all Champagnes - the reason it is so good is because it is one of the very few Champagnes to be matured in wooden casks (99% of all Champagne is produced in stainless steel vats) However, over the past 7 years Raymond Boulard Champagnes have been maturing more and more of their production in wooden casks, producing those luscious old fashioned complex Champagnes that we would all like to drink but can seldom (if ever) afford!
So why isn’t it more expensive? Mr Boulard would like it to be the same price as the Grande Marques, but he is not as well known and doesn’t have the marketing budget of the Champagne giants!
The Boulard family use no artificial fertilisers or insecticides, & most of the production is organic (At the moment they actually plant and pick according to the phases of the moon!)
The real difference comes from the pressing - the grapes are very lightly pressed and squeezed to produce a clearer, purer grape juice, with none of the residue from pips and stalks etc.
Most Champagne is then adjusted with a sweet liqueur, but not Boulard’s. The wine is so good, it is bottled without additional sweetening. This is the desirable – nature – so favoured in top French restaurants.
