The plot selection is at the heart of the wine-making process to reveal all the potential of its terroir. To get perfectly ripe grapes, Hélène and Benoît follow up each plot individually before the harvest.
Without beautiful grapes, it would be impossible to Benoît to guarantee a wine up to his expectations. A meticulous process that is necessary to get the balance right between the typicality of the terroir and the unique style of the Champagne Benoît Cocteaux.
Faithful to our know-how, our cuvées are the fruit of a long process. Different steps in which blending and matters have a prominent place. Clear wines are vinified according to their aromatic profile to achieve a high level of quality. French oak barrels, stainless steel vats and casks are used in turns in our champagne production. The perfect alliance between modernity and tradition.
Then comes the essential step of blendings. We taste, we imagine, we taste again. We doubt … And everything becomes clear. Everything makes sense, becomes logical. We have to anticipate ageing years. To imagine the potential of each wine, with no certainty. Since five generations, our family estate has been perpetuating a style, of which precision, elegance and balance are the keywords.
Tasting our champagnes is catching a part of our history. The Champagne Benoît Cocteaux history.
