Chablis with bubbles. Floral, apple, pear and flinty notes team up with a crisp, firm structure in this ethereal blanc de blancs. The flavors verge on gingerbread and vanilla on the finish. Drink now through 2004.
Edmond Besserat founded Besserat Champagne in 1843. After Edmond, his grandsons continued to build the reputation of the house. In 1927, Edmond Besserat, a grandson of the founder, married Yvonne de Meric de Bellefon, who came from another prestigious Champagne family, and the house of Besserat de Bellefon Champagne was born. The historic Bellefon Chateau is on the world-renowned Avenue de Champagne, Epernay, in the heart of the Champagne region. Besserat de Bellefon has continued to be a leading European Champagne brand for over 150 years. Today, Besserat de Bellefon is part of the Bruno Paillard portfolio of prestigeous Champagnes and produces about 40,000 cases of the Cuvee des Moines range. The brand includes a Brut, Brut Rose, Blancs de Blanc, Vintage 2002, and an Extra Brut. Each is produced with a lower dosage, resulting in a Champagne with lower atmospheric pressure. This style is quite ideal for consumption with food.
