A 5th generation champagne house that also owns the landmark Barnaut shop in the village where an array of wines, including their famous Bouzy rosé can be bought.

Philippe Secondé produces champagnes using a ‘perpetual blend’. He alludes to this in the short film clip above. This literally means that with each bottling, half of what is produced is added to a multiyear blend that sustains a deepening complexity from ageing. The young wine is then blended with the perpetual blend to create a champagne with richness and depth. It is a similar approach to the ‘solera’ method. 

Champagne Edmond Barnaut is already a very popular champagne in the UK that is sold through the high street merchant, Lea and Sandeman.
