What to expect


This is a blend mainly pinot meunier (45%) with chardonnay (30%) and pinot noir (25%) with the rosé element coming from 12% of red wine pinot noir from a region in the south of Champagne known as Les Riceys, famed for great rosé wines. Expect lifted red fruits of wild raspberry and redcurrant supported by the classic Besserat creamy and smooth mouthfeel. This is more savoury in style, with no malo-lactic fermentation, which preserves the acidity.

About the House

About the House


Food suggestion

A charming house based in Epernay and owned by the Lanson BCC family of producers. The indefatigable Godefroy Baijot, who is the Global Export Manager, and talented winemaker Cedric Thiebault lead this maison. The most distinctive asset to this house is that all of their wines are made using low bar pressure. For those of you who may not have come across this, most champagne is made at 6 bar of pressure where as Besserat make it at 4.5 bar. How does this make the wines different? The good news is that there aren't any less bubbles, instead, the approach of the bubble on the palate is more delicate, which makes them especially suited to pairing with foods of all kinds.

Food suggestion


This rosé could be served at any time of the day and it work equally well with savoury or subtly sweet dishes. Try skewers of marinated beef and a sundried tomato salsa on a lazy afternoon!
