Besserat de Bellefon Champagne
The Champagne Producer Besserat de Bellefon was founded in 1843 in Épernay. Its cuvée is the Cuvée des Moines.
Besserat de Bellefon belongs to the group of Boizel Chanoine Champagne.
In 1843, Edmond Besserat settled in Aÿ, originally from the Hautvillers originated. Over the years, he became known for his skill in producing exceptional cuvées, which he supplied to the biggest hotels, restaurants and wine merchants of the day. He decided to market his own champagne under the Besserat brand name. His son, Victor Besserat and his two grandsons took over the business and increased the prestige and reputation of the House of Besserat. With complementary talents (one was an excellent technician, the other a top-class taster), they worked together in complete harmony. They were committed to developing the reputation and prestige of Besserat de Bellefon. In 1927, Edmond Besserat, the grandson, married Yvonne de Méric de Bellefon: the Besserat de Bellefon brand was born. Victor Besserat created in the thirties a white Crémant wine, a Sparkling wine, for a renowned Parisian restaurateur who wanted a finely sparkling champagne for his clientele that would harmonize with all the courses of a menu, from aperitif to dessert. The jewel of the house Besserat de Bellefon, la Cuvée des Moines, was born. The brand later evolved and internationalised before joining the Marne & Champagne group, founded by Gaston Burtin in 1933, in 1972. Marie-Laurence Mora, heiress of this talented man, devotes all her attention to the new cuvée and has brought back into fashion the fine bottle with elongated neck, whose origin dates back to the 18th century. This famous and excellent champagne is immediately recognizable by this exclusive bottle.
