The Binet champagne house was founded in Reims in 1849 and at the turn of the century operated as one of the numerous “widow businesses” under the name “Veuve Binet Fils & Co.” The winery is located in the municipality of Rilly-la-Montagne, south of Reims. At the beginning of the 1880s, family member Armand Walfard-Binet developed the patented cold disgorgement, a special form of Dégorgements invented, which is mostly used today. The company is one of the typical representatives of champagne from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; Pinot Meunier is not used. The wines were served on the transatlantic passenger ship "Mary Queen" (Cunard Line), among others. There will be three different ones Cuvée de Prestige produced, that is "Binet Elite Rosé" (90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay), "Binet Elite Blanc de Noirs" (Pinot Noir) and the Millésime "Médaillon Binet Rouge" (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay).
