Besserat de Bellefon Bleu Brut NV Champagne cuvee is produced from a blend of 45% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir grape varietals. Cellarmaster, Cédric Thiébault, sources the grapes from the best villages of Champagne: Avize, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Louvois, Bisseuil, Vertus, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Grauves and Cumières. 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. A distinctive feature of this Bleu Brut is the absence of malolactic fermentation. Aged for 3 years on lees, a minimum of six months after disgorgement. Residual sugar: 9g/l. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Beautifully expansive and sumptuous with notes of lime, honeysuckle and acacia blossoms. Subtle whiffs of hazelnut and brioche buns.

Palate: Elegance and balance are outstanding. A harmonious combination of lemon peel and lime with hints of vanilla and mirabelle plums on the mid-palate.

Finish: Beautiful soft small bubbles allow the flavour of hazelnuts, shortbread biscuits and brioche buns to come through and linger a little bit.
