World’s most expensive Champagnes come from this small estate which few have seen but that many speak about. Boërl & Kroff was founded by Stephane Sesé and Patrick Sabaté with only one vision, to create the best Champagnes ever made. The Champagnes are made exclusively on magnums (3000 bottles/year) with 1995 as the premiere vintage (an exception is the “B” range, produced in 6000 regular bottles in years when the B & K magnums are not). Thanks to the cooperation with Michel Drappier, Stephane Sesé and Patrick Sabaté have an exclusive access to grapes grown in Drappiers three prime vineyards – Les Égrillés, Le Montouillet and La Belle Haie – from which they extract an essence according to all quality standards. A small part is fermented in oak barrels and harvest yield is kept to a minimum to maintain the highest quality possible. The wines holds a high concentration and they are extremely intense and well-made.
