Bérêche et Fils - Champagne Brut Réserve NV (Magnum)
OUT OF STOCK
Jean-Pierre Bérêche was one of the first growers to establish an independent reputation, and his sons Raphaël and Vincent have built on that work to craft some of today’s most distinctive Champagnes. With roughly equal plantings of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier spread over multiple villages, the brothers have an incredible diversity of sources within their ~10 hectares. All Champagne base wines - except for part of the Brut Réserve - are fermented and aged in neutral wood. The brothers use no artificial fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides in the vineyards. They plow the soil and then allow a cover crop to control vigor and to limit disease pressure.
Brut Réserve, a blend of 70% wines from the base year with the balance reserve wines, composed from approximately one-third each of the three major varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier from the estate's assorted holdings). A model of harmony, nuance and verve, it is a pure expression of the domaine’s varied terroirs that demonstrates both the Bérêche brother’s great skill and their originality.
The base wine is supplemented by ~35% reserve wine. Aged 2-3 years before disgorgement, and dosed around 7g/l.
