Tasting notes: The Pinot Meunier of this cuvée was grown organically and vinified in barrels before being aged for 36 months. With its low dosage, it has a particularly vinous profile, persistence, intensity, and a particularly seductive delicacy.
Food pairing: Enjoy it as an aperitif or it is also perfect with fine fish or white meat
The Domain: Bérêche et Fils has been a well-established Maison since the 19th century. The Bérêche brothers, Raphaël (winemaker) and Vincent (head of the vineyard) strive to produce champagne with personality, from top plot selections and the most natural winemaking possible. The family domain has existed since the 18th century, but it is these two brothers who have raised it to the top of the Champagne vineyards. In addition to the Bérêche et fils family domain, the two brothers have created a trading structure called Raphaël and Vincent Bérêche. This division is very rare in Champagne where the Maisons usually mix the lands and their own purchases. The grapes are selected with the greatest attention: the soils are ploughed, substances are banned and barrel aging is proudly supported. The range is around the Côte, Montagne and Vallée in the name of the three great sub-regions of Champagne followed by the name of the terroir. The two brothers have tasted hundreds of samples to achieve 6 cuvées of excellence. A domain that is a point of reference and a safe bet.
