Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Forget Brimont, Brut, 1er Cru, NV

Coming exclusively from 1er Cru Vineyards in the Montagne de Reims, Forget Brimont Brut NV is a classically structured, pure, biscuity blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay. The style here is all about drinkability and freshness with textbook crisp berry, brioche and citrus notes, and an exceptionally well balanced acidity. It is a hard act to beat at this price.

12%
88/100
Josh Raynolds, Vinous
(40% pinot noir, 40% pinot meunier and 20% chardonnay): Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon zest, redcurrant and white pepper. Dry, sharply focused citrus and red berry flavors are incisive and refreshingly bitter, a late note of quinine adding bite. Closes firm, spicy and long. Decidedly uncompromising Champagne that some may find austere.

Forget Brimont

Michel Forget inherited a strong family vinegrowing and winemaking tradition that spans six generations. Based in the town of Craon de Ludes, he owns nine hectares of prime Pinot Noir vineyards, planted mainly on the Grand Cru rated sites of Mailly-Champagne and Verzenay in the Montagne de Reims region. All the steps of the production process, from vineyard to cellar, are geared towards expressive, individual wines that offer outstanding value for money. The standard non-vintage blend is dominated by Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with a small percentage of Chardonnay and is rested on its ‘lees’ for three years before ‘dégorgement’
