Description

Champagne André Beaufort
Réserve

The Champagne Brut Réserve by André Beaufort is the result of the blending of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from vineyards near Ambonnay, located south-east of the prestigious Montagne de Reims area. This Cuvée is produced according to the principles of natural viticulture, and is the result of the work in the vineyard with traditional techniques, followed by vinification in cellar with only indigenous yeasts and natural sugars such as grape must and concentrated grape juice respectively for tirage and dosage - making it a Brut in this case. All this is followed by the aging on yeasts for 24 months.

The Champagne Brut Réserve immediately shows its character: a varied and complex smell to the nose, rich in floral aromas, ripe white fruits, citrus fruits and then yeasts gives way to a mouth full of elegance and richness. The perlage is present but subtle, acidity is balanced by natural sweetness and yet a very persistent finish. Excellent to pair at the end of a meal with plateau de fromages (cheese selection).

Champagne André Beaufort

The 6.5-hectare vineyards Beaufort have not been receiving any chemical treatments since 1969, when the owner Jacques decided to embrace the bio-philosophy, after discovering an allergy to synthetic compounds. In 1994 the domaine officially enters the official bio certifications. Beaufort does not eliminate all insects that conventional agriculture considers damaging, but it keeps the balance between them and its vineyards. Moreover, in order to limit the impact of allowed fungicides (copper and sulfur), the domaine has been experimenting homeopathy and aromatherapy, using plants and essential oils of own production. The vineyards are located in Ambonnay, in the region named Montagne de Reims, classified as Grand Cru. The vinification starts with a traditional pressing, shortly after the harvest, and a spontaneous decanting lasting some hours. The alcoholic fermentation is obtained through local yeasts and vins clairs are also treated with malolactic fermentation. The tirage is carried out between spring and summer following the harvest. The yeast refining of Brut Reserve lasts at least 24 months, while the vintage ones can rest sur lattes many years, with a degorgement happening shortly before the commercialization. The process end with the so called degorgement à la volée, which is hand-made and not per folklore: "I want all bottles to breath on more time - explains Beaufort - so I can turn my Cuvée into perfection". The dosage (adding liqueur d'expedition finale) is around 10gr/lt, whereas the sweet Demi Sec Champagnes have a content of 45gr - in countertrend with the philosophy: a unique experience seducing everyone!
