Edouard Brun Vintage Brut 2008

£50.00 GBP

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, which is why we love showcasing them here in the UK.  

Prolonged lees and bottle age are a hallmark of Brun's vintage wines, bringing autolytic and secondary flavours to the fore. The 2008 was disgorged in 2017, so spent nearly a decade integrating rich brioche and caramel aromas into the wine. The extra bottle ageing has seen the fruit character evolving into something mature and tropical. 

That fruit character is generous and complex, since this wine is a 50-50 blend of Grand Cru Chardonnay and Premier Cru Pinot Noir grapes. So in the mouth, it's full-bodied and round but also dry, pure and lemon-fresh.

Incredible verve and finesse. Textbook Brun brilliance.
