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 Bérêche rosé, Campania Remensis, uses the Roman name for the countryside around Reims. It also comes from a single terroir, the village of Ormes, just west of Reims in the Petite Montagne. It is two-thirds Pinot Noir—including a small percentage of still wine for color—with the balance Chardonnay. It is, like all the domaine’s wines, a Champagne of unusual originality and elegance thanks to its unique site and the approach of its makers.
