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.
Smooth and creamy, this Grand Cru Champagne marries toasty complexity with freshness, texture and focus. Its rather wild, meaty bouquet of brioche, lime and lemon over lies a toasty, buttery aspect plus nuances of minerals and sherbet. It’s rich and creamy, with a long, chewy presence of fruit and a fine, crackly bead that finishes with lingering savoury and mineral aspects plus the merest hint of sweetness. Artfully made and balanced. Rating: 97 Points | 19.2/20 | Jeremy Oliver
Pale colour. Candied pear, lemon aromas with grapefruit, flinty tonic water nuances. Well concentrated wine with grapefruit, flinty flavours, light chalky textures, oyster shell nuances, and long fresh mineral length, Bitter lemon, flinty bone-dry finish. Wonderful wine. Generous and mouth-filling with creamy, fruit sweet flavours and bone-dry structure. Very impressive wine. Rating: 97 Points; Andrew Caillard MW
