Authentique Brut Champagne NV
Following the Champagne tradition of the past centuries, the Le Brun de Neuville Authentique cuvees have been grown and been raised under cork for many years.
This particular breeding favours the micro-oxygenation of the wine and develops the power and finesse of its aromas.
This “cork staple” sealing technique requires manual work; especially during disgorgement.
The Le Brun Neuville Authentique Champagne NV is presented in a square ring bottle, the sign of the ageing process with the cork. It shows a tinted gold yellow light green dress with strong lemon yellow tones.
The nose is floral with honeysuckle, white rose, wallflowers, together with hints of candied lemon, bergamot and toasted bread. When aerated, it turns towards notes of blackcurrant , biscuit, wet chalk, raspberry and peach.
The approach on the palate is soft and fresh with a creamy mousse. The wine is elegant with refreshing chalky minerality. The finish of the Le Brun Neuville Authentique is long and rich, with fresh fruit, floral and pastry notes.
Food pairings: Parmesan cheese wrapped in pastry, guinea fowl or halibut in a creamy coconut sauce.
Vinification: Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation incomplete. Bottled in July 2015.
Le Brun Neuville Authentique Brut Champagne: the producer
Since it’s 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.
For over a 150 years, 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 of Le Brun Neuville Authentique is spread over 150 hectares, of which the essential has been planted for more 30 years and more 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.
Le Brun Neuville Authentique Brut Champagne: the history
A small and very well-run co-operative in Champagne, in the Sézanne area of the Marne. Founded in 1963 by 20 producers it now has 150 members. The name derives from the Le Brun de Neuville family who had a long history of winemaking in the region and who, in the 19th century, established the house that has become the cooperative.
The 150 members farm 150 hectares between them, almost 90% of which is chardonnay, and the co-operative urges all of them to farm sustainably. The vineyards themselves include crus at Villenauxe-la Grande, Fontaine-Denis, Barbonne-Fayel, Chantemerl and La-Celle-sous-Chantemerle.
