Event description

Description

The Champagne House, Besserat de Bellefon, was founded in 1843 by Edmond Besserat in Aÿ-Champagne. This would spur a long, rich family history of winemakers skilled in the crafting of cuvees. Fast forward 174 years and Besserat de Bellefon is now a legend known for making champagne bubbles 30% finer than traditional champagne. How did Besserat de Bellefon achieve all this? It all started with a challenge. In 1930, director of the Samaritaine de Lux, a very distinguished restaurant, challenged Victor to create a champagne that would be the perfect accompaniment to an entire meal. Not to back down from a challenge, Victor created a creamy flavored champagne that was specific for fine dining. This was the beginning of what was to become the legend of Besserat de Bellefon. Since then the Champagne House has done nothing but go above and beyond the typical standards of traditional champagne.
