In 1878, Champagne appeared in the Bénard-Pitois family. Now, third generation winemakers in Mareuil-sur-Ay (only a few kilometers from Epernay), Michelle Laurent Benard and Louis perpetuate the traditions and have managed the family estate since 1991.
Since then, many additions and renovations combining tradition and modernity, punctuate the life of the field, which allows Laurent to produce an impressive range of terroir focused wines with only a hint of subtle oak allowed to add complexity and elegance. He vinifies his different vineyard parcels in small tanks which gives him better control of selecting his final blends.

Nobility assembled - the reference of the house. One for all occasions.
A Gourmand Champagne - bubbles with great finesse
Purity personified - Fresh and vivacious
Excellent maturity opening with elegant aromas
"this is a classic maturing Blanc de Blancs, with elegant concentrated brioche and biscuity flavours" John Wilson, The Irish Times, December 2015
Rich and expressive with aromas of red grapefruit and a hint of raspberry.
