Country: France
Appellation: Champagne


In 1878, Champagne appeared in the Bénard-Pitois family. Now, third generation winemakers in Mareuil-sur-Ay (only a few kilometers from Epernay), Michelle Laurent Benard and Louis perpetuate the traditions and have managed the family estate since 1991.

Since then, many additions and renovations combining tradition and modernity, punctuate the life of the field, which allows Laurent to produce an impressive range of terroir focused wines with only a hint of subtle oak allowed to add complexity and elegance. He vinifies his different vineyard parcels in small tanks which gives him better control of selecting his final blends.
