Forget Brimont Brut NV
Firm and focused by racy acidity, this is lightly chalky in texture, offering tightly knit flavors of ripe Gala apple, anise, black currant candy, fresh ginger and biscuit. Shows fine balance. Drink now through 2018. 16,500 cases made.
This producer's nonvintage cuvée comes entirely from premier cru vineyards on the Montagne de Reims. It is a well-balanced wine, taut, crisp and with white fruit in the background. This bottling seems a little young and would be best from 2019.
