In the Brugnon Family, since 4 generations, assembling the soils has been a constance and a necessity. Wines from Ecueil assure their quality by the assembly of Pinot Noir from Ecueil, major wine used in the assembly, completed by two other soils, Pinot Meunier in Mont Saint Père and Chardonnays in Rilly La Montagne. Alain composes his wines by taking into account the sensorial specificities of each wines, which is what makes the difference and shows Champagne Brugnon's particular balance and what Alain Brugnon brings to it.
The knowledge of assembling associated to the growth of the wine older than 3 years in a Cave participates to it's unique taste.

The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes lend a golden straw color with hints of red fruit to this powerful bouquet. The BRUT is appropriate for all occasions: cocktails, receptions and selected menus.

The Brut Vintage always results of blending Chardonnays of Rilly La Montagne (2/3) and Pinot Noir of d’Ecueil (1/3). A more mature wine, perfect as an aperitif, he also goes extremely well with see food, fresh aromas and all delicate plates. To mark rarer occasions!
La vendange 2010 a fait suite à un mois d’août très pluvieux, et seuls nos raisins blancs sont arrivés à maturité en excellent état. Il convenait donc de les mettre en valeur.
En résulte cette cuvée millésimée, 100% Chardonnay, inhabituelle pour la maison. Elle se caractérise par une belle acidité et de la fraîcheur, mais aussi une longueur généreuse.
The same wine as the BRUT with 40 grams of sugar ; the BRUT contains only 10. The sugar amplifies the aromas resulting in a more voluminous mouth , a wine perfect for deserts and sweets.
