Viticulture "Every action has been adequately thought out. Of course our land is plowed and we also use weed control to limit disease. This vegetation cover avoids herbicides, insecticides and anti- rots. Everything begins with the soil. The fertilization is organic. They feed wildlife which in turn feeds flora and thus the soil is working. As a result the House Bérêche has one of the lowest treatment frequency index in the Champagne region. It is also among the first to be certified High Environmental Quality (level 3)."
Vinification Every year two-thirds of the wine in each barrel is drawn off and replaced with that from the latest vintage. Each parcel of vines is vinified and aged separately in barrel with its ambient yeasts. The wine spends 36 months sur lattes. All bottling occurs under natural cork. 6 grams/ liter dosage.
Aging Aged for at least 36 months on the lees.
Production approximately 4,000 bottles
Notes Drawn from a solera of 600 liter barrels begun in 1985 by Raphaël’s and Vincent’s father, Jean-Pierre.
