"Smooth and creamy, this Grand Cru Champagne marries toasty complexity with freshness, texture and focus. Its rather wild 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." - Jeremy Oliver
"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." - Andrew Caillard MW
"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, in 6 villages classified as Grand Cru. After 6 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. It is also ideal with shellfish and iodine flavours. It will complement Japanese and Korean cuisine particularly well just as it will enhance spicy undertones." - Mind Spirits & Co
