Tasting notes - The nose is fresh and reminiscent of white flowers -hawthorns and acacias, followed by very delicate aromas of floral-flavoured honey and spice. A Champagne with a crisp initial impact on the palate, gives 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 of lemon and grapefruit.

Producer Note
Champagne Francoise Bedel, a three-generation family-estate is based at Crouttessur-
Marne, a pretty village on the edge of the Champagne region. The family own
8.4 hectares of vineyards with vines aged between 20 to 60 years. The parcels of
vineyard are spread along the banks of the river Marne over four areas: Crouttes-Sur-
Marne, Nanteuil-Sur-Marne, Charly-Sur-Marne, and Villiers-Saint-Denis. Bedel operates
using biodynamic principles which they believe make for high quality wines with their
own personality and reflect the unique elements of the terroir.
Vineyard
Biodynamic viticulture : Ploughing the soil, earthing up and unearthing.
Winemaking
Part of the harvest is vinified in oak barrels to create the right conditions for controlled
oxidation and to make the wines rounder and more opulent. The remainder goes
into enamelled tanks. Racking sessions and bottlings are timed to coincide with the
most auspicious days, according to Maria Thund's lunar calendar. Riddling and
disgorging operations are done by hand. The wine spends a minimum of six years
on the lees.
