Bacquaert Brut

Méthode Traditionnelle, Brut

Bacquaert Brut consists of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The alcohol percentage is 12%. It is a gastronomic sparkling wine that is not only ideal as an aperitif but also goes along perfectly with starters.

The name of this cuvée derives from the Bacquaert family’s tradition to produce sparkling wines. Until a decade ago, Champagne Bacquaert was produced by Françoise Bacquaert. This tradition then continued on the wine estate Entre-Deux-Monts and this is how the Bacquaert Brut from Heuvelland was born.
