Alexandre Le Brun
Grand Cru Fascination Extra Brut 2014 – Alexandre Le Brun
Golden pale-yellow with persistent bead on the side of the glass. This Chardonnay shows a light evolution and expresses the typical aromas from the long lees ageing. The nose is very complex with mineral, white flowers and yeasty notes. On the palate it’s fresh, and full bodied, with almond notes candid fruit flavours. The finish is long and persistent, and the complexity and elegant of this white wine is very distinctive. A classical Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs.
Did you know: Champagne is the world’s most famous sparkling wine, and takes its name from the Champagne region in north east France. There are currently 1.3 billion bottles ageing in the region’s cellars.

The first hints of life of Champagne “Le Brun” was founded in 1750 in Monthelon. Since then they perpetuate the tradition and Alexandre Le Brun represents the family’s 9th generation of winemaker. They work in a vaulted cellar dating back to 1822 and they grow the grapes they use to make their Champagne. They cultivate their vines with love and passion. “With healthy, quality grapes, it’s a breeze to make good champagnes” is Alexandre’s motto.
The grape harvest is only the first step in a very long process. His winemaking is original and atypical and he crafts very fine wines. Alexandre Le Brun is a récoltant manipulant meaning that he makes and markets his Champagne under his own label, from grapes exclusively sourced from his own vineyards and processed on his own premises. He cultivates just over three hectares of vines, with plots in Monthelon, Mancy, Morangis, Chavot-Courcourt, Grauves (1er cru), Sézanne, Chouilly (grand cru) and Epernay.
Those parcels allow a extraordinary alchemy of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties.
