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 35% of wine comes from a perpetual blending system. 60% of vinification occurs in neutral french oak demi-muids and 40% in small vats. The second alcoholic fermentation "Prise de mousse" occurs under cork. Aging sur lattes 24-36 months. Disgorgement: January, July and October. Dosage: 7g/l.
Aging Aged sur-lattes for 24 to 36 months before disgorgement.
Notes This wine is produced from 3 different grape varieties, 1/3 of each. The strongest identities of each terroir are only selected to get a very balanced blending. The cold flexibility of the Pinot Meunier from the Vallée de la Marne combined with the mineral precision from the terroir of Ludes and the Pinots from sandy-limestone terroirs from Ormes give complexity, richness and length to this cuvée. The 35% of reserve wines (perpetual blending system) ensure the style and the wine’s maturation process while respecting the base year.
