The perfect champagne for any meal
The Besserat de Bellefon house was founded in 1832 by Edmond Besserat and has 25 hectares of vineyards, mostly located in the Marne Valley, the birthplace of the Pinot meunier grape.
In 1920, Edmond Besserat, grandson of the founder, and Yvonne de Méric de Bellefon joined forces. Together they began to work on the Champagne house that it is today.
In 1930, based on an anecdote that happened in the famous Parisian restaurant La Samaritaine de luxe, they began to produce creamier champagnes to accompany any meal. Thus was born in 1930 La Cuvée des Moines, a collection of Champagnes in which the liqueur de tirage was reduced to achieve a finer bubble. Moreover, these wines do not undergo malolactic fermentation, which allows the wines to retain all their purity and freshness over time and increase their ageing potential.
