STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The Bénard-Pitois family started to produce Champagne in 1878. Now the third generation Michelle and Laurent Bénard-Louis continue the tradition and manage the family Domaine. This wine is a premier cru growers Champagne made from a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. This blend ensures the wine is wonderfully rich and powerful. It has been highly recommended by a number of the Irish wine press.
The nose has alluring notes of toast, brioche, pear and baked apple. The palate is rich and powerful with layers of ripe fruit flavours. This wine has a wonderfully long finish.
Star rated Guide Hachette 2018.

“Fantastic value for money. This is a delightful generous Champagne with a creamy texture, red apple fruits and a mouth-watering, clean, dry finish.”
