When to drink
|Ideal champagne for aperitifs.|
|It is nicely sparkling when you serve it, and will reveal a classic fresh pale gold robe. Its nose is fine and suggests red fruits and brioche. In the mouth, the attack is fresh and prolongs with a pleasant light acidity and discrete tastes of red fruits.|

“Because the vines are living organisms, it is not treated but cared for.”
Coming from several generations of growers, Aude and Boris Bression joined their know-how in 2006 to create Champagne Bression-Lourdeaux. Their estate, located in the village of Try, in the heart of the Marne valley, covers 6,25 ha (14.83 acres) of vineyard. The Meunier grape varietal accounts for 90% of the vineyard, while Chardonnay and Pinot Noir 5% each.
“80% of our vineyard is grassy et valued through the work we do on the soils. We reduce the impact of fertilizers, water and air by adding our own compost. Because the vines are living organisms, it is not treated but cared for.”
The grapes grow using reasoned viticulture, which preserves the natural environment while maintaining a diverse fauna. The balance and regeneration of our soils is essential to be able to hand over our heritage to the next generation.
