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.
80% of the blend is Chardonnay. This is the signature blend of this ambitious, well-backed house. Tiny bead. Very light nose. Flirtatious texture and not a trace of astringency nor excess acidity. Brisk and appetising. Easy to like with real lift. Jancis Robinson MW
Very fine and elegant, with deep layers of flavour and texture, this savoury and near-dry Champagne has a creamy, waxy bouquet whose scents of floral notes, citrus oil and brioche reveal undertones of mushrooms and honey. It’s long and shapely, with a round, nutty core of flavour that extends long and lively towards a focused and persistent finish of freshness, shape and harmony.

From a producer who’s relatively new to the Australian market, this chardonnay dominant cuvee is more about a lifted freshness than more challenging funky character, which sits well in the glass here, fruit driven with grapefruit and lemon senses, perhaps a citrus curd and baked good/yeast bun feel, too, then those salivating tonic bitters that drives the palate to desire. It drinks with such ease, light, lifted and quite ethereal. Tony Love, The Advertiser
