LE BRUN DE NEUVILLE
Since it’s foundation, Le Brun de Neuville has built itself around a history of men and women, the families of winegrowers with a common desire to equip themselves with effective tools, so that their knowledge combined with the rich product of their terroir enables them to produce Champagnes of the highest quality.
FOR OVER A 150 YEARS ,
.. the Le Brun family resides by the village of Bethon, close to the town of Sézanne in the Marne. The memory of Madame Le Brun who owned the castle in 1845 is still alive today. The house Le Brun de Neuville inherits its name thanks to the action of the noble heiress of the Château de Bethon, Madame de Reviers, one of the founders of the House.
In 1963, in the charming village of Bethon
Mr. André Vandier, Mrs de Reviers and 26 wine-growers passionate about their work, gather together to create « La Crayère » with a family spirit which will guide them through the years. United by their passion, nearly 170 wine-growers form today the «Le Brun de Neuville family», sharing their knowledge, their resources and their traditions to give birth to a highly prestigious range of champagnes.
THE VINEYARD LE BRUN DE NEUVILLE
IS SPREAD OVER 150 HECTARES,
Of which the essential has been planted for more 30 years and more on the undulating slopes of the Sézannais. Its vineyard is planted predominantly in Chardonnay, which represents 88% of the total. The Pinot Noir accounts for 11% and the Meunier just 1% of the vines. The supplies of Champagne Brun de Neuville come exclusively from the vines of its members.
THE “COTE DE SÉZANNE” rests on a bed of chalk
... covered with a few centimeters of earth and made up of granules of calcite. Its high porosity makes it a real reservoir of water ensuring the plant a sufficient supply, even in the driest summers. Our vineyard is planted on a hillside that allows it to accumulate large amounts of solar energy.
THE HOUSE IS COMMITTED
TO INEGRATED VITICULTURE
Throughout the vineyard cycle, we work to respect all the principles promoted by the Champagne committee.
90% of CHARDONNAY makes up Le Brun de Neuville’s vineyard
Le Brun de Neuville is the specialist of the famous "Blanc de Blancs" champagnes. Chardonnay wines are characterized by delicate aromas, floral notes, citrus, sometimes mineral. With a slow evolution, it is the ideal grape variety for ageing wines. Pinot noir will bring roundness, body and length on the palate.
