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 30 percent reserve wine aging in demi-muid. Each parcel of vines is vinified and aged separately in fûts de chene using only native yeasts. The wine spends 36 months sur lattes under natural cork before disgorgement. 6 grams/ liter dosage.
Aging Aged sur-lattes for 36 months under natural cork.
Production 2,800 bottles.
Notes Drawn from a perpetual blending system of 600 liter barrels begun in 1985 by Raphaël’s and Vincent’s father, Jean-Pierre.
