the “Timeless”
signature

Inspiration Notes

Our Cellarmaster, Cédric Thiébault, historically sources the grapes for our Besserat de Bellefon Bleu Brut in the best villages of Champagne.

This cuvee is the fruit of a unique and very specific method of champagne making that has been perpetuated by Besserat de Bellefon since 1930. This consists of adding less “liqueur de tirage” (a mix of sugar, yeast and must) at the moment of bottling which creates a lighter, more diaphanous formation of effervescence. The mousse is smooth, creamy and persistent. A distinctive feature of our Bleu Brut is the absence of malolactic fermentation.

“Its dazzling clarity, imbued with minerality, reveals the depth of its original balance. Brimming with fruit, spices and immense energy, Bleu Brut shimmers with luminous coppery highlights and offers magnificent depth. A timeless signature. A first step into the world of BB.”

Inspiration Notes

Our Cellarmaster, Cédric Thiébault, historically sources the grapes for our Besserat de Bellefon Rosé Brut from the best villages of Champagne.

This cuvee is the fruit of a unique and very specific method of champagne making that has been perpetuated by Besserat de Bellefon since 1930. This consists of adding less “liqueur de tirage” (a mix of sugar, yeast and must) at the moment of bottling which creates a lighter, more diaphanous formation of effervescence. The mousse is smooth, creamy and persistent. A distinctive feature of our Rose Brut is the absence of malolactic fermentation.

“The Rose Brut cuvee is a celebration in the mouth. Delicate and gossamer light, its robe of pink muslin is like a sensual embrace. The nose is generous, intense and refined, studded with small red berries, with notes of redcurrant jelly and sweet almond. The finish is mouth-watering, bright and lightly spicy.”

Inspiration Notes

Our Cellarmaster, Cédric Thiébault, historically sources the grapes for our Besserat de Bellefon Extra Brut in the best villages of Champagne; mainly Mesnil-sur-Oger, Mareuil, Bisseuil, Mailly and Rilly-la-Montagne.

This cuvee is the fruit of a unique and very specific method of champagne making that has been perpetuated by Besserat de Bellefon since 1930. This consists of adding less “liqueur de tirage” (a mix of sugar, yeast and must) at the moment of bottling which creates a lighter, more diaphanous formation of effervescence. The mousse is smooth, creamy and persistent. A distinctive feature of our Extra Brut is the absence of malolactic fermentation.

“To the eye it is pure and bright, gleaming pale gold in colour with coppery highlights. The nose is mineral, precise and lightly citrusy, evolving to saline and toasted notes. Fresh and finely chiselled in the mouth. Extra Brut is a low dosed champagne which enables it to be paired in all simplicity with seafood, pan-fried scallops with lime or dishes with Asian citrus fruits. A revelation…”
