Description

Champagne Forget Brimont Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut 1er Cru NV is a Champagne made only red grapes, in this case, it is 100% Pinot Noir.

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 company owns 15 hectares of vineyards in the Montage de Reims with Grand Cru vineyards at Mailly Champagne and Verzenay, and Premier Cru vineyards at Chigny-Les-Roses, Ludes and Villers-Allerand. Pinot Noir is the most predominantly planted grape variety.

Forget Brimont’s cellars are dug out of the chalky soils (that Champagne is famous for) to a depth of 15 metres. This means that the cellars are at a constant temperature of 10.5 degrees centigrade in both summer and winter, the optimum ageing conditions for Champagne. 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. Champagne Forget Brimont is a NM (Négociant Manipulant) producer of Champagne, which means, like most other producers they buy grapes in to make the wine.

Champagne Forget Brimont Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut 1er Cru is 100% Pinot Noir sourced from 1er Cru and Grand Cru vineyards in Montagne de Reims, a region recognised as being the best for Pinot Noir production in Champagne. The vineyards here rare marl and clay-limestone. The grapes are harvested by hand followed by whole bunch pressing, alcoholic fermentation at 17 ˚C and malolactic fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The Champagne then undergoes ageing in traditional chalk cellars for at least 54 months. The wines are left to rest an additional two months after dosage before they are shipped. Up to 50% reserve wines are added to the blend to maintain consistency of style.

Dosage is 5.5 g/L.

Tasting Notes

From Champagne Forget-Brimont:

Appearance: Golden colour delicately tinted with copper reflections.

Nose: Rich and complex, the nose develops aromas of dried fruits with toasted and pastry notes.

Taste: The ripeness of the fruit is combined with its crunchiness. Flavours of apricot and orange zest evolving into stewed notes. Subtle combination of structure, length and liveliness.

Food Pairing

Try with richer poultry dishes, wild duck or game, dishes with truffles and venison.
