N/V Réserve Brut, Bérêche et Fils
35% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir,35% Chardonnay. The family team own 11 hectares, most of which are in the village of Ludes on the Montagne de Reims. They block malolactic fermentation so the wines have a tensile, chalky line running through them. The extended oak ageing they practice adds depth and power to the wines. 35% reserve wine from the previous two vintages and a dosage of 7g/l. This is an exemplary blend, and no wonder Antonio Gallonie said in his 2019 review: "I often find myself reaching for the [Bérêche] NV Brut Réserve, which is reliably one of the very finest Champagnes in its peer group."
