Entre Ciel et Terre Brut, Champagne Francoise Bedel NV

Tasting Note

The nose is fresh and reminiscent of white flowers - hawthorns and acacias, followed by very delicate aromas of floral-flavoured honey and spice. A Champagne with a crisp initial impact on the palate, gives way to rich and generous floral notes, enhanced by a touch of liquorice. The dosage is understated and perfectly integrated, thus allowing the true essence of the wine to come to the fore. This finish is exuberant with a freshness accentuated by citrus aromas of lemon and grapefruit.

Producer Note

Champagne Francoise Bedel, a three-generation family-estate is based at Crouttes-sur-Marne, a pretty village on the edge of the Champagne region. The family own 8.4 hectares of vineyards with vines aged between 20 to 60 years. The parcels of vineyard are spread along the banks of the river Marne over four areas: Crouttes-Sur Marne, Nanteuil-Sur-Marne, Charly-Sur-Marne, and Villiers-Saint-Denis. Bedel operates using biodynamic principles which they believe make for high quality wines with their own personality and reflect the unique elements of the terroir.

Vineyard

Biodynamic viticulture: Ploughing the soil, earthing up and unearthing.

Winemaking

Part of the harvest is vinified in oak barrels to create the right conditions for controlled oxidation and to make the wines rounder and more opulent. The remainder goes into enamelled tanks. Racking sessions and bottlings are timed to coincide with the most auspicious days, according to Maria Thund's lunar calendar. Riddling and disgorging operations are done by hand. The wine spends 7 years on the lees.

Serving Suggestion

Wonderful paired with pork ribs, duck breast, and even a Sunday roast chicken.

Grape

Pinot Meunier 80%, Pinot Noir 20%
