THE LABEL

 

Bèlon du Bèlon is the label founded in 2000 by Paolo Perin as an expression of the strong passion for excellent wines, inherited from his father. Ambition is the heart of the company: to produce a wine capable of interpreting one of the richest terroir in the world in the best possible way, perfectly working only the best grapes. By managing to blend the knowledge of tradition with the most innovative techniques.

The irresistible attraction that only the most tasty and refined food can evoke: Bèlon is the best oyster in the world, the variety that is aged and harvested in the estuary of the Bèlon river, in western Brittany.

 

Nothing more appropriate can define the consistency and quality of our wines, which appeal for their fine and persistent perlage.


Thousands of small rising bubbles come to life in the Bèlon du Bèlon glasses, just as delicate and precious as “pearl necklaces”. Lively suggestions to evoke magical and effervescent atmospheres at every toast.

The Bèlon du Bèlon label was founded in 2000 from the ambition of Paolo Perin to offer a wine capable of perfectly expressing the characteristics of the terroir of Franciacorta and its best grapes. The meticulous attention to processing and the search for the best yield, aiming at the continuous improvement of the result, are the guarantee of superior quality.

Bèlon du Bèlon is a label that rewards the most demanding palates because it embodies the love, experience and knowledge of two generations of careful wine selectors.

The history of Bèlon du Bèlon is sewn around Paolo’s memories, his childhood. When all the children dreamed of going to the moon, he dreamed of being able to stay on earth. That rich land of Franciacorta, steeped in the scents of vineyards and cellars, when even the pressing of the grapes was just a game.

BÈLON METHOD

In the Bèlon Method, the secret is the care dedicated to each phase of the production process: enhancing the terroir and the vine is the ultimate goal, but it can only be achieved if you care about every single step.

The way the grapes are handled when they are picked and put in the boxes, are classified, cooled and selected, makes the difference. We know it. This is why we choose delicacy and attention, also reserving it for the washing process, because it is the basis of the purity of the wines we will obtain. Nothing is left to chance.

The pressing takes place in the absence of oxygen. The must obtained is then fermented in small French oak barrels and in steel tanks.

During the bottling phases, where each bottle is uniquely marked to guarantee its traceability, we proceed with the addition of the liqueur de tirage, a blend of wine, selected yeasts and mineral substances, to continue the fermentation process that takes place in the dark of the cellars, with controlled atmosphere.

Over the months and years, the yeasts transform the natural sugars of the grapes into alcohol and carbon dioxide, thus generating the “foaming”, which gives the sparkling wine its typical effervescence.

Indeed, the Classic Method is characterized by the second fermentation. For this, the final processing includes the delicate phase of remouage, in which we eliminate the sediment making it flow towards the neck of the bottle with a delicate rotating movement. At this point, we proceed with disgorging and with the subsequent refilling, the so-called liqueur d’expedition, a “secret blend” on which many of the characteristics that make Bèlon du Bèlon wines depend.

It takes years for this alchemical process to come to an end. The scrupulous processing is in harmony with the passage of time and the love reserved for every detail; this is the only way to compose the harmony of bubbles, truly unforgettable on the palate, that characterizes every bottle of Bèlon.

Rich and multifaceted bouquets, velvety accents and persistent freshness for a vivid and versatile collection.
Brut, Saten and Rosé from the Instinct collection tell all the nuances of Franciacorta, for an intense and aromatic sensory journey.

A toast, and it’s immediately a Party, the liveliest and most flamboyant collection, designed for convivial and fashionable occasions. The labels are colored to make the aromatic experience and the fresh persistence of Bèlon du Bèlon sparkling wines lively and festive.

The peak of purity in the maximum expression of the territory. The Blanc and Noir collection elegantly gives the emotion of the most sophisticated sparkling wines. Intense and precious Pas Dosè that elegantly express the flavor of Franciacorta.

When the maturity is revealed on the palate in its complexity of aromas, bringing with it softness with a very fine perlage, the wine experience becomes sublime. This is Vintage, the most precious collection, dedicated to evolved spirits, in search of the maximum expression of intensity.

From the refined and centuries-old Bèlon du Bèlon vineyards, where the precious qualities of the hilly area of Franciacorta meet the brezze of Lake Iseo and the refreshing alpine currents, the new Still collection of still wines is born.

Two different origins characterize the precious olives from which our refined Extra Virgin Olive Oil is born.
They are selected by hand and are cold pressed. They grow in two unique and precious territories due to the characteristics and properties of the land.
