Raphaël and Vincent Bérêche are the young innovators behind this old family domaine founded in 1847. The fifth generation to head the estate (Raphaël joined his father in 2004), they are unceasingly curious and meticulous, garnering immense attention in France and now in the US. The estate's vineyards are planted with roughly equal parts of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. They have been turning their attention to natural viticulture, having completely stopped using chemical herbicides in 2003, and converting to biodynamic since 2007. They have slowly been increasing the percentage of oak used in the cellar, and today about three-quarters of the production is vinified in barrel. Disgorging is still done entirely by hand, and they use a traditional liqueur for dosage. The “Campania Remensis” is their rosé cuvée, and is made from 60% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay, 5% pinot meunier, and 5% coteaux Champenois from old vines in Ormes in Montagne de Reims West. It is bright with red and strawberry fruit with streaks of flowers and tobacco. It is persistent with impeccable balance and structure with fine focus and grip. Biodynamically grown.
