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 wine shows a tinted gold/yellow/light green colour with strong lemon yellow tones. The first nose is a floral farandole with honeysuckle, white rose and wallflowers, together with hints of candid lemon, bergamot and toasted bread. When aerated, it turns towards notes of blackcurrant, biscuit, wet chalk, raspberry, and peach. The approach in the palate is soft and fresh with a creamy and melted effervescence.
The wine develops in a gentle and pulpy way, reminiscent of white, red, and black fruit, displaying a chalky minerality, a creamy texture, and an elegant patina. The finish is rich, with fruity, floral and Viennese pastry notes that reinforce the sensation of tenderness and fusion.
