Bezannes

Bezannes (postcode 51430), is a commune with 1,692 inhabitants (as of 2016). The village is located in France, in the Champagne Region Montagne de Rheims. Bezannes is directly adjacent to Reims to the southwest. Since 1985, the commune carries the status of Champagne classification, as a Premier Cru place. The grapes are rated with 90%. The vineyards are limited to only 6 hectares (status 2019), which are completely planted with Chardonnay vines. The vineyards are insignificant, both in terms of area and quality. Why Bezannes received the Premier Cru status in 1985, with the reclassification of the vineyards in the Champagne region, is unclear.
