When you see Bérêche on the list, you feel like you entered a cheat code and this bottle, disgorged 11/2021, underscores yet again the incredible value presented by the “Brut Réserve”. It’s a beautiful golden color in the glass with persistent mousse and lovely weight and viscosity in the palate. This is so rich with an abundance of fruit and yet so balanced with remarkable acidity. It’s a perfect aperitif but would play an excellent partner to any meal as well. These wines are truly special and becoming more and more elusive. I’m taking advantage while I can.

Popped and poured; no formal notes. A very pretty straw color with a persistent mousse. Lemon meringue, raspberries, almond croissant, and pink flowers. Powerful. The finish is rich and long. Particularly lovely with a little air and some food. These wines from Bérêche…wow. Disgorged 7/2019.

Pale gold; medium intensity aromas of pink grapefruit, white peach, lemon pith, lime zest, tangerine, white pepper, subtle autolytic notes of brioche; dry, high acid, medium alcohol, medium body, medium intensity flavors of grapefruit, underripe peach, citrus pith, subtle white pepper and biscuit; flavors not very concentrated; good

An all-time fave Champagne. Can you believe they still hand-disgorge+recork?! Fab to get these in 375ml.

Few better ways to ring in the weekend than with #champagne. Bereche's winning combo of nutty richness plus currents of bright acidity and stoney minerality = stalwart happy maker.

Really love this Champagne. Crisp yellow apples, pears, baking spices. Delicate but not lacking in weight.
