The House of Champagne Bérêche Père et Fils dates back to 1847 when this Hungarian emigrant settled in the Champagne region. Today, the House is managed by the fifth generation with Vincent and Raphaël assisted by five employees and benefiting from the assistance of their parents. Initially, the Bérêche family was a supplier of grapes for the Canard Duchêne House. It is from the 1920's that Albert Bérêche starts to produce his own wine, a raw wine of Champagne then not sparkling. It is his grandson Pierre Bérêche who will totally extract himself from the House Canard Duchêne and produce, bottle and market at the Domain.
Geographical location of the Maison Bérêche Père et fils
From an initial surface of 3 hectares, the surface of the exploitation did not stop growing, doubling then tripling with the passing of years. Today, the Maison Bérêche has a surface of about 10 hectares in the heart of the Champagne region. The soils are limestone and clay-limestone. In 2003, Jean-Pierre and Catherine Bérêche decided to stop treating the vines with herbicides to prepare the transition to organic farming. From now on, the Maison Bérêche makes a solid pact with the organic farming. The treatment of the vines and the soil is done with meticulousness. This property is also one of the few to have the High Environmental Value level 3 certification. It must be said that the 10 hectares of the House are in a way divided into two large parts. Thus, on 6.5 hectares, we find the Pinot Meunier occupying 67% of the surface and the Pinot Noir which occupies 43%. Chardonnay is grown on the remaining 3.5 hectares. The vinification is done through a slow and spontaneous fermentation and an ageing on lees. The objective is to offer the most refined style possible.
