Edouard Brun is a small, family-owned Champagne House in the revered Grand Cru village of Aÿ. Founded in 1898, the House has stepped out of the shadow of history in recent years, evolving from a very traditional approach to a modern and fruit-driven style. The wines are all the better for it.
This half-bottle of the Cuvée Speciale captures all the richness and depth of the house style. Brun uses old oak to ferment a portion of its Pinot Noir grapes, leading to softness, roundness and elegant red cherry fruit on the palate. The acidity is clean and crisp, balanced by bright, lively fruit and brioche-and-biscuit lees complexity.
