2.45ha. under vine
Laurent Bénard, an engineer, has a personal approach to Champagne reflecting his sensitivity and his values. It was obvious that the champagne should be named after him!
"With our way of working we obtain rich and concentrated grapes.
Our traditional plowing makes the vine root as deep as possible to find nutrients.
In this way, the exchange between the vine and the soil is more important which makes the grapes richer and adds a delicious balance to the wine.
A natural and static settling allows us to maintain a maximum of natural yeast.
We do not add sulphites and our wines are matured in oak barrels in order to enjoy what the wood can add to the wine" .
