Bérêche et Fils has been producing Champagne since the mid-19th century and has steadily built its reputation as being among the finest producers in the entire region. Sourcing from a deep well of traditional winemaking, it’s been the modern layers introduced by the current winemakers at the helm, the brothers Raphaël and Vincent Bérêche, that have continued to keep this estate in such a highly reputable and esteemed position. The brothers shifted their approach to single vineyard plots with minimal dosages to allow for the vines on their prized territories to speak for themselves. Since they do not allow for malolactic fermentation, their house style can certainly be described as racy.
The Les Beaux Regards blanc de blancs is sourced from two extraordinary plots of old-vine Chardonnay in Ludes, where the domaine is based on the Montagne des Reims. These are the lieux-dits Les Beauxregards, planted in 1902 by Raphaël’s great- grandfather, and Les Clos, planted in 1970 by massale sélection. These ancient vines give Les Beaux Regards its deep concentration and intensely chalky minerality.
