Champagne Forget Brimont Grand Reserve Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is a Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes sourced from Grand Cru rated vineyards.

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 Montagne 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.

Champagne 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. Although Champagne Forget Brimont own their own vineyards, they also buy grapes in to make wine so they are classed a NM (Négociant Manipulant) producer of Champagne.

The 100% Chardonnay grapes for the Champagne Forget Brimont Grand Reserve Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru are sourced from the villages of Avize, Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oge, all highly regards for Chardonnay production. The grapes for are sourced from over 100 parcels of Brimont’s own 16 hectares of 1er cru vineyards. The grapes are harvested by hand followed by whole bunch pressing, alcoholic fermentation at 17C and malolactic fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The Champagne then undergoes ageing in traditional chalk cellars for at least 30 months. The wines are left to rest an additional two months after dosage before they are shipped. Between 20 and 40% of reserve wines used in the cuvee to ensure consistency.

The dosage of Champagne Forget Brimont Grand Reserve Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is 10 g/L.
