Champagne Forget Brimont is a small producer of Champagne located in Craon de Ludes. 6th Generation Champenoise Michel Forget is the current owner and winemaker and the estate can trace it roots back to the early nineteenth century when his ancestor, Louis, first created vineyards in the area. The Champagne Forget Brimont brand was established in 1920 by another relative, Eugène.
The non-vintage Champagnes are a blend of three different vintages of wine (allowing them to maintain a house style) and are aged a minimum of two years prior to release. Brimont's Vintage Champagnes are aged between three and ten years prior to release, this ensures that the Champagnes arrive at perfect maturity for immediate drinking, although they can be cellared for longer if required.
Great value Champagne perfect for parties and celebrations. Awarded Silver Medal at International Wine Challenge 2009. Fresh creamy sweet fruit nose with light toast. Full ripe appley fruit crisp with a touch of brioche on the palate. Good mousse with balanced acidity.
"The NV Brut Premier Cru is a very pretty wine laced with expressive notes of citrus, lemon, white peaches and flowers. This mid-weight, floral Champagne will make an excellent aperitif, but it can also stand up to lighter-bodied foods. It is a beautifully balanced wine with plenty of Chardonnay character."
