Besserat De Bellefon Champagne Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru
This champagne, dressed in a pure vibrant yellow, offers a citrus nose combined with floral notes of honeysuckle and acacia. It is well structured and well-rounded in the mouth. Chardonnay provides mineral notes that blend perfectly with the hints of dried fruits, apricot in particular, before giving way to honey flavours. The finish is fresh, light and persistent. A very good value for money champagne!

The house of Besserat de Bellefon was founded in 1843 near Ay in Champagne, and is now based in Epernay. The hallmark of the house is the lower than normal pressure that the wine is kept at under cork. This lower than normal pressure does not reduce the effervescence, but softens it, allowing the wine to partner better with food.
