What to expect


Filled with cream, apricot, lemon preserve and ginger stem biscuit. The palate is rich with much depth, pulling on the tongue. Some very appealing fruit bitterness coupled with bright acidity and moreish oxidative character. Soft, yet punchy on the finish. This is a big wine, give it some time in your glass, or if you can, decant it.

Technical details

75% Chardonnay, (including 2,80% of solera) 25% Pinot Noir including 51% of reserve wine. Primary Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tank with NO Malolactic fermentation. Transferred to oak for several months and then to bottle for secondary fermentation entirely under cork. Bottling in June 2014, with 4 years on cork. Dosage: Brut 6 g/l

About the house

About the house


Journalist review

The Le Brun family resides by the village of Bethon, close to the town of Sézanne in the Marne. The memory of Madame Le Brun, who owned the castle in 1845, is still alive today. The house Le Brun de Neuville inherits its name thanks to the action of the noble heiress of the Château de Bethon, Madame de Reviers, one of the founders of the House. The vineyard Le Brun de Neuville is spread over 150 hectares, of which the majority has been planted for over 30 years on the undulating slopes of the Sézannais. Its vineyard is planted predominantly in Chardonnay, which represents 88% of the total. The Pinot Noir accounts for 11% and the Meunier just 1% of the vines. The supplies of Champagne Brun de Neuville come exclusively from the vines of its members.
