The champagne of the Tradition Bérat Schenk cuvee is a “blanc de noirs” wine characterized by its strength, roundness and fruity bouquet. This makes it a perfect champagne for an aperitif. These qualities are linked to its large proportion of Pinot Meunier (70%), supplemented by Pinot Noir (30%).
In this House, all the musts are obtained with a traditional oak wood press, a tool that has almost disappeared from Champagne. However, it is still used by some winegrowers for its pressing quality.
This Bérat Schenk champagne is exclusively made from grapes from the village of Boursault (Marne Valley). The blend is composed of 60% of the 2015 harvest and 40% of the reserve wine from the 2014 harvest.
All cuvees are aged for at least 3 years.
This champagne is remarkable for its excellent value for money.

History of the Bérat Schenk champagne. Created in 1950 from family inherited land, the Bérat Schenk House is located in the heart of the Marne Valley. Today, Roger Bérat (from the third generation), assisted by his wife and his son Frédéric (fourth generation), has taken over the family business.
Far from the image of the bigger Champagne Houses, Bérat Schenk embodies the independent winegrower who contributes to the richness of the Champagne terroir and its traditions.
The use of one of the last traditional champagne presses and the practice of ageing in oak barrels bear witness to this. The 4 hectares of vines of the Bérat Schenk House produce an average of 25,000 bottles.
The Bérats have specialized in two famous grape varieties of the Marne Valley: Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. Thanks to these grape varieties, they produce a champagne called "blanc de noirs"...
