Champagne A. Bergère

A. Bergère

Champagne A Bergère is the most exciting new producer to arrive in the UK for several years. A grower Champagne based in Fèrebrianges, and with a building on the famous Avenue de Champagne in Epernay, the Bergere family have been growing grapes since 1848, with the winery founded in 1949 to release champagnes under the family name. Today they own 65 hectares of vineyards split between the prestigious Côte des Blancs, Vallée du Petit Morin and the Côte de Sezanne, which themselves are the southern sector of the greater Cotes des Blancs region.  They work only with their own fruit. Current generation Adrien Bergère heads up the estate with a primary focus on Chardonnay, low dosage across the range, extended lees ageing and judicious use of oak barrels to tease out the full potential of the wines.
