Since its foundation, Le Brun de Neuville has built itself around a history of men and women: the families of winegrowers, with a common desire to equip themselves with effective tools, so that their knowledge — combined with the rich product of their terroir — enables them to produce Champagnes of the highest quality.
The Le Brun family resides by the village of Bethon, close to the town of Sézanne in the Marne. The memory of Madame Le Brun, who owned the castle in 1845, is still alive today. The house Le Brun de Neuville inherits its name thanks to the action of the noble heiress of the Château de Bethon, Madame de Reviers, one of the founders of the House.
The vineyard Le Brun de Neuville is spread over 150 hectares, of which the majority has been planted for over 30 years on the undulating slopes of the Sézannais. Its vineyard is planted predominantly in Chardonnay, which represents 88% of the total. The Pinot Noir accounts for 11% and the Meunier just 1% of the vines. The supplies of Champagne Brun de Neuville come exclusively from the vines of its members.
Notes and Reviews
This Champagne shows a pale yellow-gold dress and light green-yellow hints with silver shades. The rather dense disc makes fine and light bubbles bloom, creating a persisting neck label.
The first nose is reminiscent of linden, cherry, gooseberry, pear, and red apple. When aerated, it turns to notes of honeysuckle, blackcurrant, Sichuan pepper, muscatel fresh grape, and lily, with smoked, balsamic, and iodised accents.
The approach in the palate is soft and fresh with a creamy and melted effervescence. The wine develops with some fleshy density of white, red, and black fruits, enhanced with peppered aromas. The final takes over the aromas and the tactile footprint of pulpy fruits, with much greediness and sap in an ultimate saline vibration, is very palatable.
