Champagne Brimoncourt Brut Rosé NV
- Light, fruity
These Brimoncourt Champagnes don’t hold back in terms of flavour and complexity. If you’re after a bottle of bubbly nothingness to fade gently into the background while you politely sit through endless speeches, this is not the one. Determined to live up to its Grand Cru designation, this is as much an experience as a wine. Luscious berries, yeasty richness, incredible length and driving acidity, it’s more than a match for a number of courses at the table, and offers so much more than just pleasant sipping.
“A wonderfully complete, stylish and tightly focused accompaniment to cuisine, this pristine Champagne sports a high percentage of GC fruit. Lifted by a whiff of potpourri, its complex, creamy and faintly meaty bouquet of red cherries, raspberries and underbrush reveals undertones of orange rind and mushrooms. It’s long and crackly, with an austere but chewy palate of punchy pinot driven flavour extending long and faintly mineral over a fine, chalky spine towards a drying and savoury finish. Superb.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Champagne is not generic sparkling wine, it's a region. There I said it. Get it right people. The reason the French get their lingerie in a twizzle when we call Trilogy 'Champoyne' is the history, the money and the angst that have all gone into making Champagne what it is today: a bureaucratic, strictly controlled, marketing-driven behemoth, that still manages to pump out some of the world's finest and most consistent wines. Adding bubbles to wine was a masterstroke of genius, and makes wine from marginal regions not only palatable, but unique and eminently desirable. But it's the way the grapes are grown, the land they're grown in, and the way the bubbles are generated that makes traditional method sparkling (which all Champagne is) special. There will always be alternatives, but none have the history and marketing power of the luxury Champagne powerhouses. You're not buying wine; you're buying a brand name. And that's ok.
