Edmond Besserat founded Besserat Champagne in 1843. The historic Bellefon Château is world-renowned, in Épernay, in the heart of the Champagne region.
Edmond Besserat, a grandson of the founder, married Yvonne de Meric de Bellefon, who came from another prestigious Champagne family, and the house of Besserat de Bellefon Champagne was born.
This classic (non-vintage) Champagne is produced from wines from a combination of the current vintage and previous vintages (reserve wines), rather than a single year. This wine has a long sur lie aging on the lees that give a lovely toasty oak and brioche quality. The art of blending wines from several vintage years ensures that there is consistently a high-quality, elegant wine in every bottle.
