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.
Nose : The nose is fresh and reminiscent of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia). After agitation, it reveals very delicate aromas of floral-flavoured honey and spice bread.
Palate : A champagne with a crisp initial impact on the palate, giving way to rich and generous floral notes, enhanced by a touch of liquorice. The dosage is understated and perfectly integrated, thus allowing the true essence of the wine to come to the fore.
This finish is exuberant with a freshness accentuated by citrus aromas (lemon and grapefruit).
