From: Champagne, France
Tasting Notes: Primary notes of brioche, toasted hazelnuts and honey are followed by fresh fruit aromas of warm apples, fresh blackcurrant, and pomegranate. On the palate, the wine gives an impression of freshness with a soft creamy effervescence.
Pairing: Gastronomic Champagne is the goal of Leclerc Briant, and all of their wines are intended to accompany fine cuisine. This Champagne is superb with full-flavored dishes of considerable weight such as lobster or crayfish served with toasted brioche or sautéed turbot with puréed root vegetables. A classic rabbit with a mustard sauce or roasted chicken would both match the weight of this texturally rich Champagne.
Leclerc Briant is a trailblazing Champagne house producing wines of singular energy and nerve. Lucien Leclerc founded the winery with four hectares of vineyards in Cumières in 1872. The business moved to Épernay in 1955 when Bertrand Leclerc married Jacqueline Briant and formed the négociant firm which still carries their name. Leclerc Briant was an early adopter of organic practices beginning in the 1960s and was one of the first to bottle single-vineyard Champagnes starting in the 1970s. In the late 1980s, Bertrand and Jacqueline’s son, Pascal, began integrating biodynamic principles and part of the production has been Demeter certified since 2003. Today, enologist Hervé Jestin continues the legacy of this visionary house.
