The 2012 Vintage Cuvee by Bérat Schenk is a generous and powerful champagne.
2012 was particularly good for the estate as it combined quality and quantity, particularly for the Pinot Noir, a grape variety that makes up 100% of this vintage.
Three years in oak barrels mixed with the unique know-how of the Bérat Schenk property make it a vintage of great quality, representing the soul of the Bérat Schenk Champagne.
Aspect: Amber gold
Palate: Powerful aromas of red currant fruit with a toasted bread finish.

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"...
