Champagne Francoise Bedel, a three-generation family estate, is based at Crouttes-sur-Marne, a pretty village on the edge of the Champagne region. The vineyard's parcels of 8.4 hectares of vines aged 20 to 60 years are spread in the banks of the Marne river, over four areas : Nanteuil-Sur- Marne, Charly-Sur-Marne, and Villiers-Saint-Denis. Bedel operates on Biodynamic principles.

A pleasing round and fruity bouquet marries yellow fruits (apricots and peaches), and dried fruits (raisins and dried apricots). When swirled the rich alcohol notes of cognac and Armagnac waft up. The pleasingly supple palate of dried fruit notes reflects the bouquet. The finish shines with maturity and freshness. This last lends it a pleasant thirst-quenching quality.
