Champagne France

Small in size ... the wines from this family-owned estate can rival some of the top wines in all of Champagne.


Description

Leon and Albert Bereche founded the family estate in 1847 with only 2.5 hectares of vineyard land in Ludes, Champagne. The family mostly produced grapes to sell to larger houses. Beginning in the 1950s, successive generations expanded the property and acquired land in the Vallee de la Marne. Today, the estate has 9.5 hectares spread over 21 parcels in three areas of the Montagne de Reims and the Vallee de la Marne.

Although the family has been producing their own wines since the 1970s, it was the fifth generation of winemakers and the current owners, brothers Raphael and Vincent Bereche, that refocused the estate on production of their own wines and brought international fame and recognition for the impressive results. The brothers studied vineyard management and oenology and practiced their craft in various traineeships. They joined the estate in the early 2000s and quickly established a reputation as talented grower-producers. Through their leadership, the estate has shifted toward naturalistic growing methods that respect the land on which the wines are born.
