2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Revelation" Brut Champagne

SKU #1178721

Le Brun was named Champagne Producer of the Year, 2015 International Wine & Spirit Competition. Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker in Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a ninth generation winemaker. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750, and their cellars were built in 1822. The Revelation is indeed that. A revelation! It is 100% Meunier with a low four grams per liter dosage. Based upon the 2009 vintage, with five years on the lees. It has a nice clean character with bright yellow and red fruits.

I had the honor of enjoying this champagne with Alexandre LeBrun himself over sushi after a recent in-store tasting he provided for our customers. It was incredible! The unique profile created by the Pinot Meunier can’t really be overstated: Persimmons, quince and a slight toastiness are rounded out to perfection by a modest dosage. This is a special wine that would highlight a special occasion excellently!

If you are a fan of Meunier based Champagne, trying this is a must. The Revelation is composed entirely of Meunier from vineyards of fifty years or older, only 1200 bottles of this incredible wine were made. The vines for this Champagne are in the very cool micro-climate of Monthelon, just south of Epernay, and thus have a far racier character than any of our other Meunier’s that come from the Western Valley of the Marne. With quince like fruit, subtle brioche and ample mineral drive, this serious wine has a finish that lasts like a blanc de blancs. It is dry at only four grams per liter of dosage, but not austere. A classic!
Drink from 2015 to 2039

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. 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.


- 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.
