Champagne Brimoncourt Brut Régence

Who makes it?

Champagne Brimoncourt is still a relatively new Champagne maker with a history. You can read more about its history here in Brimoncourt, France’s new Champagne House has its roots in history. However, the brand is one that is not ‘new’ but newly reinvigorated by Alexandre Cornot, a dedicated local with a pure Champenois heart. 

This Champagne Brimoncourt Brut Régence is their cuvee designed to embody ‘Brimoncourt’s spirit and signature’. Undoubtedly, it is a very amiable fizz and has a very elegant style.

How do they make it?

Brut Regence is a Chardonnay dominant blend with 80% of the wine being Chardonnay and just 20% Pinot Noir.  It has had 48 months on lees before release for sale.  There has been no oak maturation for this wine to retain its pristine fruitiness. It really is all about the fruit.

What does it taste like?

There is a fragrant floral lilt to the citrus and apple fruit here. Then comes a soft nougat toasty cream flourish. That soft nougat also adds some fruit weight to the palate and rounds it out. It is dry and the flavours linger with a soft sweep of fruit at the finish. It is a wine that you instinctively reach to refill your glass with.

What to drink it with?

Enjoy the Champagne Brimoncourt Brut Regence with lighter styled dishes starting from appetisers through to chicken salad, or a cheese roulade filled with bacon or mushrooms. 

Cheese

It is good with hard cheeses such as Parmesan and Manchego. Also with a good wodge of bloomy cheese, either Brie or Camembert or even Epoisses, or fresh cheese such as feta, chevre.
