La storia

The Bèlon du Bèlon label expresses the experience and knowledge of two generations of attentive wine selectors. It was created in 2009 thanks to Paolo Perin's who wanted to produce a wine that expresses the terroir with the best features, the most coveted grapes, and the most sophisticated processing techniques.

Paolo Perin

With conviction and pride, I decided to follow the path taken by my father Umberto many years ago. The world of excellent wines has been part of my life and my experiences since childhood. This is why I see Bèlon du Bèlon as the spontaneous result of this path: it represents my passion for wine. My love of wine is reflected in constantly developing research into the best yield from individual grape varieties, and in meticulous processing that brings the pleasure of handed-down experience to each bottle.

Bèlon du Bèlon

Bèlon du Bèlon is temptation. It is irresistible attraction that only the most succulent and refined food can evoke: Bèlon is the best oyster in the world, the flat variety that is cultivated and harvested in the estuary of the River Bèlon, in the western part of Brittany.

Bèlon du Bèlon sparkling wine is simply the pearl of the most precious oyster, the quintessence of Franciacorta.

Nothing can more appropriately define the consistency and quality of wines that charm with their refined and persistent perlage. Thousands of tiny bubbles rise in a glass of Bèlon du Bèlon, just like delicate and precious “pearl necklaces”, evoking sparkling and magical atmospheres with each toast thanks to their vibrant appeal.

Franciacorta

In the hills steeped in nature and history between Brescia and Lake Iseo, the roots of vineyards have intertwined for centuries.

The entire history of this territory is closely linked to the essence of its wine: from archaeological finds that reveal the presence of the ancient art of viticulture to the activities, in medieval times, of Benedictine monks, whose communities known as “curtis francae” lend their name to Franciacorta, and to the boom in wineries in the 1960s.

A strong emphasis on sparkling wine, in particular, makes Franciacorta a national benchmark for Metodo Classico (classic method) production that is guaranteed by DOCG (controlled and guaranteed denomination of origin) Franciacorta production regulations, whose main characteristic is second fermentation in the bottle.

Method

The finest sparkling wines are made using the Metodo Classico. Bèlon du Bèlon makes this method unique and exclusive to obtain the best results: the secret lies in special attention.

After harvesting the grapes, the first essential step involves meticulous washing of the grape clusters to contribute to the final purity of the wines. Then, after pressing the grapes, most of the must is fermented in small French oak barrels while part of it is fermented in steel tanks.

During the bottling phase that follows, the “liqueur de tirage” is added, containing wine, selected yeasts and mineral substances. In the dark wine cellars, after months and years, the yeasts turn sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide, creating the “prise de mousse”, which gives sparkling wine its typical effervescence. Fermentation in the bottle is the distinctive feature of the Metodo Classico. The bottles used are the ones that will be served at the table of those who will taste the result of much painstaking work. For this reason, the process involves the delicate riddling (or remuage) phase in order to eliminate the sediment by conveying it to the neck of the bottle, from where it is removed. At this point, after the sediment has been removed, the so-called “liqueur d‘expedition” is added to fill the bottle. It is a “secret blend” with many characteristics that make Bèlon du Bèlon wines unique.

Hence, the complex method that involves over three years of waiting and painstaking processes, transforms the grape extract into the finest Franciacorta Bèlon du Bèlon sparkling wine.
