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.
A wonderfully complete, stylish and tightly focused accompaniment to cuisine, this pristine Champagne sports a high percentage of GC fruit. Lifted by a whiff of potpourri, its complex, creamy and faintly meaty bouquet of red cherries, raspberries and underbrush reveals undertones of orange rind and mushrooms. It’s long and crackly, with an austere but chewy palate of punchy pinot driven flavour extending long and faintly mineral over a fine, chalky spine towards a drying and savoury finish. Superb.

Pale salmon color. Generous grapefruit, lemon curd, strawberry aromas with grilled nut complexity. Rich and voluminous with plentiful fruit, yeasty complexity, creamy mouth filling bubbles and fine mineral acid cut, Slight chalky textures and lovely along acidity. Taché gives colour and some rounded red fruit notes. Rating: 96 Points; Andrew Caillard MW
