    "A gorgeous grower Champagne offering excellent value either solo for a virant apéritif, or for gastro pairings for its pretty red fruit, cocoa butter and brioche notes. Smoked salmon mousse perhaps, or beef carpaccio with Parmesan Aoife Carrigy - 11th December 2021 

    "This elegant premier cru Champagne is streets ahead of several big names costing almost twice the price. Lovely bottle age and complexity, and a bargain even at its full price of €39" Tom Doorley - 17th July 2021

    Perhaps you're familiar with Champagne, but have you heard of Grower Champagne? Allow us to introduce this unique type of Champagne. 

    Grower Champagne is a unique and artisanal expression of the Champagne region.

    Made by small-scale producers who own their own vineyards and grow their own grapes, grower Champagne is a direct reflection of the vineyard's unique characteristics, allowing you to experience the nuances of terroir and small-batch production. Unlike blended Champagnes, which may include grapes from multiple vineyards and appellations, grower Champagne is sourced from a single vineyard or a small number of vineyards, resulting in a more specific and unique flavor profile.

    At Bénard-Pitois, a family of Champagne makers dating back to 1878, Michelle and Laurent Bénard-Louis continue the family tradition of working the soil and the vine with respect and precision. Their passion for their work is reflected in the high-quality Champagne they produce, appreciated both in France and abroad, and exclusively imported in Ireland by Whelehans wines.

    With a vineyard of 9.5 hectares located on the hills of 6 villages in the Great Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs, their Classified Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards are perfect for exploring the terroir of Champagne.

    For a true taste of luxury, why not try our direct import Bernard Pitois Carte Blanche Champagne? Pair it with the award-winning handmade chocolates from Chez Emily & Lorge, two of Ireland's premier chocolatiers, and experience the ultimate in artisanal indulgence, as the perfectly rich and creamy texture of chocolate complement the lovely effervescence of Champagne, creating a delightful balance of flavors.
