Champagne Françoise Bedel et Fils

Champagne Françoise Bedel’s founder was born in the small village of Crouttes sur Marnes’, the Champagne region. This Champagne house has been around for 2 generations, with the 3rd about to join. Champagne Bedel has 7 hectares under vine, with Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay grapes, accounting for 78%, 9% and 13% of planting respectively. Our Champagnes are produced from all three varieties.Life and respect of nature are essential values for Françoise Bedel, her family and her friends. In order to leave a sound and living domain for her children, she introduced biodynamic viticulture in 1998, allowing her to achieve harmony with her job and personal life.This viticulture method precludes the use of any synthetic chemical products (fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or insecticides) and acknowledges the fact that the earth is a living organism. In this regard, our domain is considered a living body. Our goal is to make a well balanced, high quality and harmonious wines.The Champagne Françoise Bedel is domain produced, using traditional methods only, ranging from pressing of the grapes to ageing of the wines in cellars to manual remuage.
