Le Brun de Neuville "Authentique" Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1301163

All of the "Authentique" range from Le Brun de Neuville comes exclusively from Bethon in the Sezanne, and is aged on the lees on a cork rather than a crown cap. This is kept for three years on the lees and is composed of 67% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Noir, of which 17% is red wine to give the Champagne its rosé color and flavor. It benefits from 5% of oak aged wines and over 1/3 reserve wines. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

In general, I don't drink a lot of rose champagnes, but this is one major exception. When we tasted this wine with the staff, I knew there was a big difference here, and hearing more about the wine-making process from Gary, I quickly saw why I was falling in love with this bottle. This is a drier expression of rose champagne, with plenty of rich, red fruit, and lots of texture, weight, and nuttiness from aging on the cork. Its really an ideal food wine, and I can easily see pairing this with main dishes, whether that's poultry, pork, mushroom-based veggie dishes, or anything you might pair a good Pinot with.

I fell instantly in love with LeBrun de Neuville’s “Authentique” Rosé. The blend, two thirds Chardonnay and one third Pinot Noir, has the best of both worlds: rich and vibrant red fruit flavors along with soft delicate notes of flowers and stone fruit. The acid keeps the blend energetic and the chalkiness of the Sezanne area it is grown in is undeniable.

I'm a big fan of this relative newcomer to our stable of DI Champagnes, so I was excited to have the opportunity to taste their rose. Containing 67% Chard and 33% Pinot Noir, there is a bit less PN than in the Brut bottling; this wine's color actually comes from a 17% portion of Pinot vinified as red wine. A creamy nose of red cherries leads to delicious flavors and texture on the palate - as much a testament to 3.5 years on the lees and ageing on cork as it is to distinguished, chalky soils and an excellent terroir.

This is everything I like my Brut Rose to be. Bright red fruits with raspberry and cranberry, chalky minerality and a creamy mouth feel. The little details of the wine making process add up to a big difference in the way this wine tastes. The smallest amount of oak barrel aging and allowing the wine to age on a cork versus a crown cap give it a slightly nutty complexity that makes this wine taste like it should cost more than it does. As they say, the devil is in the details!

Over 2 dozen wine growers come together to combine their knowledge, passion and the fruit of their vineyards to bring us the wines of Le Brun de Neuville. The Authentique Rose is a wonderful and creamy textured rose, showing beautiful dry red fruits, chalky notes and a long creamy texture. perhaps the best deal in rose we have, this was a hands down winner for me at our last Champagne tasting!
Top Value!

To be under the "Authentique" label from the Le Brun de Neuville, the wine needs to be aged on the cork (instead of bottle cap) for at least 3 years (the rose is 3.5), and to be a majority of Chardonnay. This rose is about 2/3 Chard and 1/3 Pinot Noir. A portion of that Pinot Noir brings us the beautiful pink color and fresh raspberry flavors. The Chardonnay keeps is lifted with notes of citrus zest while a small barrel fermented portion adds a touch of spice and nuttiness. Layered with complexity, the rose screams quality and elegance.

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
