Winery Details

    The name Champagne Brimoncourt was last discovered on a wine label in the 1950s, before it disappeared for a long time. In a bold move, Alexandre Cornot revived the sleeping beauty in 2008. A native of Reims with a spirit of adventure, Cornot set out on a quest for the “perfect Champagne House” which, in his opinion, had yet to be discovered. He has achieved one of the most difficult tasks one can see themselves confronted with in the wine industry - that is to launch a new brand into the highly closed-off world of Champagne. Read more

Press Review

    Brimoncourt Extra Brut NV

    80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay from Aÿ, Bouzy Ambonnay, Cramant, Mesnil and Oger. Dosage is just 2 g/l. Very nervy, bright nose with good balance considering the low dosage. Not austere at all, though it’s a tad chewy. Pretty flirtatious and I must assume some age compensates for the low dosage - though it tastes extremely fresh. Maybe just particularly ripe grapes? Very appetising.

    Brimoncourt Extra Brut NV

    Smooth and creamy, this Grand Cru Champagne marries toasty complexity with freshness, texture and focus. Its rather wild, meaty bouquet of brioche, lime and lemon over lies a toasty, buttery aspect plus nuances of minerals and sherbet. It’s rich and creamy, with a long, chewy presence of fruit and a fine, crackly bead that finishes with lingering savoury and mineral aspects plus the merest hint of sweetness. Artfully made and balanced.

    Pale colour. Candied pear, lemon aromas with grapefruit, flinty tonic water nuances. Well concentrated wine with grapefruit, flinty flavours, light chalky textures, oyster shell nuances, and long fresh mineral length, Bitter lemon, flinty bone-dry finish. Wonderful wine. Generous and mouth-filling with creamy, fruit sweet flavours and bone-dry structure. Very impressive wine.

    Brimoncourt Extra Brut NV

    Bright lemon in colour with green hues and a light string of fine bubbles. A complex nose of nectarine, dried fruits and ginger with some hints of mint. The palate is ample but with plenty of freshness. In the mouth, aromas of pink grapefruit with an elegant finish. Ideal with a roasted turbot with a crayfish sauce.

    Brimoncourt Extra Brut NV

    Light yellow colour, with a toasty developed bouquet showing some real aged complexity. A hint of parsnip as it warmed. The palate is full and rich and yet also very drying, savoury and crisply cleansing on the finish. The aftertaste lingers on. The acidity and dryness are ultra-refreshing. (Made solely from Grand Cru terroirs and liqueured at 2 grams/litre)

    Medium to light straw colour and quiet aldehydic bouquet, with almost a sherry-like touch. It’s soft and dry, round and smooth on the tongue, nougats flavours and again yeasty, flor like notes. It’s very clean and dry on the finish and yet soft. It seems like a low­dosed wine. I like this.

    Brimoncourt Extra Brut NV

    The impressive nose is driven by pinot noir, showing musk and toast. It’s very dry, as expected, but has considerable palate strength. A good choice for those who like their champagne bone dry.
