Information
 


Françoise Bedel - Pure Biodynamist.


Since 1979 when Ms.Francoise Bedel started to manage the estate, Champagne Bedel has continuously been improving and shifted to biodynamic. Bedel is the first qualified member of BIODYVIN* from Champagne region(2002). She met homeopathy in the process of seeking good way to cure Vincent(Francoise son)’s disease. She also had got an interest in Biodynamie which uses similar idea and methods. Then, she began to introduce Biodynamie to her vineyards(1998). Today Bedel is recognized as an icon of Biodynamic Champagne, and also finest producer of Pinot-Meunier.

One of the disadvantage of small producer is short ageing period. They cannot afford long ageing period therefore wines are relatively young. But Bedel took extremely long ageing period and then release the bottles. The wine acquires depth and integration.

*BIODYVIN is a group of pure biodynamist and established by Lalou Bize-LEROY and Anne-Claude LEFLAIVE.
