Winemaker since 1982, I managed the family estate Doquet Jeanmaire from 1995 to 2003, both in terms of the management of the vine and the development of cuvées.
More and more precise and biological work was then set up in the vineyard, aiming at the most complete expression of the different soils occupied by the plot.
Totally independent since 2004, after the purchase of the shares of the family company held by my sisters, I can deepen without constraint my will of experimentation and research of the most healthy and respectful cultivation methods of the soil and the consumer.
Since 2004, I market under the brand Pascal Doquet Mesnil Grand Cru vintages that I vinified according to my personal choices before the separation, as well as the cuvées developed since that same year from a vineyard in evolution towards organic viticulture.
Resolutely turned towards the search for cultural practices in harmony with nature and the planet, the techniques and materials used on the vines of the domain are in constant evolution.
This philosophy can be summed up by the term "sustainable viticulture", since long-term reproducibility is an essential factor in the choice and way in which customary work and new experiments will be carried out.
In order to validate this evolution with our customers, a certification in organic farming has been undertaken since 2007. The 2010 harvest is the first to benefit from the AB label. The vintages in which it will be assembled with the 2011 harvest will be marketed at the earliest from the end of 2013. A first cuvée "from grapes grown in conversion to organic farming" is available since the middle of the year. 'year 2012.
