Le Brun de Neuville stands as a prominent producer nestled within the limestone slopes of the Côte de Sézanne, a cherished southern sub-region of Champagne. Predominantly cultivating Chardonnay in their vineyards, they are steadfast in their commitment to sustainable viticulture, embracing increasingly eco-conscious practices. As a testament to their dedication, their wines proudly bear the 'Haute Valeur Environnementale' certification.

The vineyards themselves are a captivating sight, where only a delicate veneer of soil veils the remarkably chalk-rich earth beneath. Among their exceptional offerings, the Côte Blanche reigns supreme, an embodiment of their terroir. Crafted exclusively from 45-year-old Chardonnay vines, this cuvée's foundation lies in the 2016 harvest, complemented by 52% reserve wines that gracefully matured for 60 months on lees before reaching the pinnacle of their expression.

Upon pouring, a delicate, satiny mousse captures the eye, maintaining its elegant composure atop a pale straw-gold canvas. The bead, fine and unwavering, further exemplifies the wine's finesse. Aromatics gracefully unveil the quintessential essence of Champagne, with notes of freshly baked bread, hints of dried honey, the comforting embrace of yeast lees, brioche, and a subtle nuance of cashew—a truly captivating bouquet.

In the mouth, this Champagne reveals richness and expressive character, caressing the palate with a creamy texture that gracefully transitions to a dry, chalky finish. Flavors reminiscent of baked bread, ripe pear, yeast lees, and brioche unfold in full splendor, with citrus undertones and the subtle allure of roasted cashew in the backdrop. The wine's vivacious acidity leaves a lasting impression, while the finish lingers, showcasing a delightful interplay of bready notes and an oily, textured aftertaste.

Tasting Profile

The first nose reveals a flavour of hawthorn and acacia, wet chalk, peppermint, green apple, fresh grapes with a touch of anise. When aerated, it turns to notes of whipped cream, chives, lemon zests and yellow grapefruit with a pinch of nutmeg.
The approach in the palate is soft and fresh with a creamy and melted effervescence. The wine develops a sensation of citrus pulp, apple and pear flesh, enhanced by zesty aromas which bring freshness to the whole. The mid-palate is orchestrated with a very pure chalky minerality. The final is dressed with a fleshy fruity combined with the chalky elegance and a subtle dosage, to deliver an ultimate sensation of creamy and iodized melt.
