"This is made of roughly equal parts chardonnay, pinot noir and meunier, and 70 percent of it was vinified in barrel. It’s ample in body, its creamy notes of stone fruits, orange citrus and green apple underlined by stony minerality, and it finishes with excellent length and depth.
While Bérêche’s Brut Réserve is always a solid buy, this version is particularly compelling." Peter Liem
These are two brothers Raphael and Vincent Bérêche who have taken over the family estate. For this wine they use a third each of variety chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier with 30% reserve wine coming from solera. This is a perpetual reserve going back to 1985 and includes every vintage from then.
Their production method includes, natural fermentation using wild yeasts, non-malolactic fermentation to preserve acidity, aged on lees in barrel before going into bottle and the cellar for 24 months to age further in bottle.
