This 2015 vintage signed Bérat Schenk is a gourmet and powerful champagne.
The year 2015 in Champagne proved to be generally beneficial with a very hot and dry summer which could have posed problems without the arrival of beneficial rain at the end of the summer.
The Bérat Schenk vines are located along the Marne and were able to take advantage of optimal conditions, making it possible to produce a promising vintage.
This 2015 vintage signed Bérat Schenk is made from 3 great Champagne grape varieties:
30% Chardonnay, source of freshness and floral aromas
40% pinot noir, for power and persistence in the mouth
30% Pinot Meunier, source of fruity aromas
This champagne was fermented in stainless steel vats and aged for 12 months in oak barrels. Disgorging took place in September 2021 with a Brut dosage (6 g/L).
This long aging results in a champagne with complex notes. The notes of white fruits and flowers gradually give way to ripe yellow fruits (Mirabelle plum and apricot).
On the palate, this vintage reveals all its delicacy while retaining a freshness that reveals its potential on the finish.
A very great Champagne vintage at an incomparable price!

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"...
