Champagne Bergere Origine Brut 375ml
Complex Chardonnay dominant, yeasty new bubbly from a great small producer; this wine rocks great flavours of creaminess, fresh baked bread and sourdough, all underpinned by smoky hints of mushrooms and an outstanding long finish.
Champagne Bergere is an exciting modern Champagne based in Ferebrianges, and with a building on the famous Avenue de Champagne in Epernay. The Bergere family has grown grapes since 1848 and the winery was founded in 1949 to release champagnes under the family name. Today the family owns 65 hectares of vineyards split between the prestigious Cote des Blancs, Vall?e du Petit Morin and the C?te de Sezanne, which themselves are the southern sector of the greater Cotes des Blancs region.
Current generation Adrien Bergere heads up the estate with a primary focus on Chardonnay, low dosage across the range, extended lees ageing and judicious use of oak barrels to tease out the full potential of the wines.
