The name Champagne Brimoncourt was last discovered on a wine label in the 1950s, before it disappeared for a long time. In a bold move, Alexandre Cornot revived the sleeping beauty in 2008. A native of Reims with a spirit of adventure, Cornot set out on a quest for the “perfect Champagne House” which, in his opinion, had yet to be discovered. He has achieved one of the most difficult tasks one can see themselves confronted with in the wine industry - that is to launch a new brand into the highly closed-off world of Champagne.
Champagne house based in Aÿ with notably smart packaging. Very tight, steady tiny bead. Light but taut nose. The back label promises this is peu dosé (lightly dosed with sugar) but actually it tastes pretty ripe and full to me before tightening up like a lemon mousse on the finish. Ambitious.

An exemplary aperitif-style Champagne whose toasty, floral fragrance of stone fruit, minerals and mushrooms reveals nuances of tobacco leaf and brine. It’s exceptionally long and creamy, with a restrained presence of fruit tightly wrapped in a vibrant, nervy acidity and culminating in a refreshing and mineral finish.

Pale colour. Fresh grapefruit, pear, grilled nut, light lanolin, flinty aromas. Mouth filling wine with generous grapefruit, lemon glacé, yeasty flavours, persistent creamy bead and underlying grilled, toasty, briny notes. Finishes chalky dry but long and minerally. Beautiful Champagne. Rating: 95 Points; Andrew Caillard MW
