Champagne Bellefon de Besserat
Besserat de Bellefon was founded in Aÿ in 1843 by Edmond Besserat, who originally hailed from Hautvillers. Over the years he became recognised for his skill in crafting exceptional cuvées that he supplied to the greatest hotels, restaurants and wine merchants of the day.
Following in Edmond’s footsteps, future generations continued the business. His grandsons, Victor and Edmond, became as passionate as their forebear about work well done and a commitment to excellence and quality. With complementary talents (one was an outstanding technician, the other a highly accomplished taster) they worked together in complete harmony. They were committed to developing Besserat de Bellefon’s renown and prestige. In 1920 Edmond married Yvonne de Méric de Bellefon, daughter of a noble Champagne family, giving the House a family crest, and the Besserat de Bellefon legend was born.
The Cuvée des Moines represents 80 years of a unique and singular process using a selection of the very best Champagne wines. The Cuvée des Moines is produced using a high percentage of Grands Crus and Premier Crus wines. The Besserat de Bellefon House uses less tirage liqueur. The foam that results is lighter, more ethereal. The deep and fresh cellars allow a slow second fermentation in the bottle, enhancing the development of an unctuous and persistent foam. The delicate bubbles and lightness of the effervescence give the Cuvée des Moines its creamy flavour. The Cuvée des Moines is the Champagne especially created to accompany the most extraordinary oenological and gastronomic experiences.It is in the tasting that you will thus discover the Besserat de Bellefon «Sensation».
