Story

Story

The founding idea of Brimoncourt is to get back to the original DNA of champagne, to the time when it was a light and joyful wine for celebration, a wine to be shared with people but not in a formal way.

For three centuries, Champagne has been synonym of fine tables, subtlety and inspired savoir-vivre… Brimoncourt is our tribute to these for-ever Champagne values: elegance, independence, sharing and lightness.

A Daring Move – This signature is that of a charming dissenter: Alexandre Cornot. Passionate being, admirer of the terroir and Champagne lover, he breathes character and exigency into each and every one of the House’s creations.

A Joyful Expression – At Brimoncourt, we are proud of developing a lively and creative brand with strong personalities who share a common vision and passion for this wonderful wine that is Champagne. More than just a great wine, Brimoncourt is a way of being, inspired by free spirits: it is a chivalrous desire, a sophisticated response to convenience and boredom.

Cradle of Champagne – Our wines are born in Aÿ, in the historical heart of the Champagne vineyard, in nearly bicentenary buildings and gardens. This anchorage in Aÿ is also a promise and compels us to bring a special care to the selection of vines and grapes when creating the Brimoncourt wines.

Tasting by Gérard Basset MW – Best sommelier of the World

Eye
lts very light yellow robe sparkles with delicate bubbles gathering into a persistent string of pearls of great purity.

Nose
Fine and intense nose with notes of citrus and white fruits.

Mouth
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.

James Suckling – 93 points

A generous and harmonious Extra Brut with an expansive bouquet of mirabelle and a touch of toasted brioche. In spite of almost no dosage, the lemony acidity is not a jot too sharp. Long, elegant finish. 100% from Grand Cru vineyards. Drink now
