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 The grapes are macerated for 8 to 10 days with 70% being whole-cluster and 30% de-stemmed. A slow fermentation occurs in neutral french oak barrels. The wine is aged in the barrels for 18 months. Bottled without fining or filtration.
