Why you’ll love it?
The story of modern Champagne Brimoncourt starts with founder Alexandre Cornet, who rescued the name from oblivion and released his first wine in 2014. Prior to this rescue operation, the last time a Brimoncourt Champagne hit the shelves was in the 1950s. This Champagne has been made exclusively from 6 Grand Cru terroirs and dosed with only 2 grams of sugar per litre. Composed of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, the Extra-Brut cuvée is the result of a rigorous selection of the best grapes from outstanding years.
After 4 years spent maturing in the cellar, this 2g wine is the purest expression of the Maison Brimoncourt’s know how. Its very light yellow robe sparkles with delicate bubbles gathering into a persistent string of pearls of great purity. Fine and intense nose with notes of citrus and white fruits. The attack is forthright, frank and full. The aromas of citrus fruits are in perfect harmony with the minerality of the wine and they go on in a splendid lingering finish. With its outstanding freshness, this wine is excellent for aperitif.
