A 14ha Family Estate, wine growing since 1687. Based in Oeuilly, inside of La Vallée de la Marne, this Domaine has been part of the expansion of Champagne. Today the Three last Generations lead the Domaine: Mélanie, Benoît and Jean-Mary their father, whose experience has made of him a leader in all that matters concerning respect for, and the protection of, the environment.
We are very proud to represent their long History and to spread their work with their extremely precise wines!
Based in Ludes, inside la Montagne de Reims, the Family Estate Bérêche & Fils represents a clear translator of the great values of the Terroirs of Champagne.
By the hands of Raphaël and Vincent Bérêche, two brothers united to lead the domaine since 2004. Keeping the Historical family values they represent in several cuvées the Identity of their multiple Parcels and soils. With a dedicated work in the vineyards led by Vincent and a very precise winemaking led by Raphaël in the Cellars. Outstanding Wines that i have been following for more than 10 years and i am eager to bring them to Portugal!
In The heart of Trepail, are settled the 3ha farmed Organically and Biodynamically by David Léclapart. A strong believer on this type of viticulture that has been doing so since 1996 when he took over. His Wines are delicate and subtile as himself. Such a kind, generous and precise winemaker, elaborating in his small Family Estate extremely vibrant wines! I thank David, Carole and their Sons to be so supportive and we are delighted to bring soon to Portugal, a few of his Champagnes and also some of his new adventure in the south of Spain... More to come soon!
Only 2,5 ha represent Emmanuel's Vineyard. He was lucky to take over this Parcel of the Mont Benoit, planted with the 3 main Varieties by his father. Since 1998 he slowly started to age his first few bottles. Today, 20 years have gone along, and Emmanuel is making some of the most elegant organic wines in this side of the South of Reims. An extremely small production (7000-8000 bottles) so it is such a Joy to be able to bring a few cases to Portugal in 2018!
Athénaïs de Béru, a brilliant and endearing winemaker. One of a kind, Athénaïs, against all odds chose to drop her initial carrer, move back to her family Estate. Learned and took over the Vineyards starting from scratch the Winemaking of this beautiful Terroirs of Chablis planted by her father around 1987. Since 2006 she has started to bring out the different identities of her Terroirs with a strong will and clear vision of a fully Organic and Biodynamic Estate. Extremely precise on understanding the pruning, the natural biodiversity and enhance the depth of her wines with long agings. Such and incredible Joy to be able to bring you her vision and her outstanding Wines that have something really Unique to discover in the very well known site of Chablis!
François, got back in 2007 to the family roots where his great grand father had the family vineyard. For long sold to the near Co-opeartive, François has started slowly to take over the vineyard work first and certify his full work organically and do some parcel micro-cuvées. In the heart of Nevy sur Seille, a small town in the Vallée des Reculées, his family estate is installed very close to Château Chalon. Today François has been making clearly outstanding oxidative wines with a clear image of moderate and long oxydations that convey as for Chardonnay or Savagnin a beautiful structure after more than 6 years in barrels "sous voile" in his great Grand father's cellar. His master of this aging but also his very precise stil non oxidatives wines have made me a very big follower of his vision of Jura Wines. It is a huge joy to be able to start with him as my first Jura partner. Like after all this years working together i strongly believe on his work and his intention of making this outstanding wines!
