"Dis, “Vin Secret” Extra Brut showcases the delicate fruitiness of Pinot Meunier grown on heavier silts and clays then aged sur latte to the point where the primary fruit is in perfect harmony with the aged, autolytic expression of the wine. While frequently released as a 100% bottling of Pinot Meunier, there are some years that Vincent will add up to 10% Pinot Noir and/or Chardonnay." - Distributor Notes

Françoise Bedel Description

"...there is no mistaking that Françoise makes darn good examples of Meunier-based Champagne, as does her son, Vincent Deseaubeau now that he runs the estate under his mother’s watchful eye...Based in Crouttes-sur-Marne, a sleepy hamlet in the far western edge of the Valée de la Marne, Vincent farms 8.4 hectares here and in the neighboring villages of Nanteuil-sur-Marne, Charly-sur-Marne and Villiers-St-Denis. The Valée de la Marne is known for Pinot Meunier and about 78% of the vineyards at Bedel are planted with this variety while Chardonnay (13%) and Pinot Noir (9%) play a minor, supporting role. The cellar work is meticulous with wines resting in bottle many years before release with increasingly lower dosage than in past releases. This are vinous Champagnes that reward decanting."- Distributor Notes
