Candied fruit and vanilla.
Aged in the traditional chalk cellars 15 metres underground for at least 10 years. Forget-Brimont are one of the lasts houses of Champagne to still continue digging its own cellars today.
50% Pinot Noir, 50 % Chardonnay, this wine is made exclusively with grapes from the 2007 vintage.
Forget-Brimont adopted a sustainable viticulture and minimal-intervention method 20 years ago which is respectful of the soil and the vine. All fertilisers used are natural and treatment is targeted and kept to a minimum. Grape hand-pickers are paid by the hour, not per kilogram to ensure perfect maturity of the grapes. Initial impression of Pinot Noir with balance provided by Chardonnay. Flavours of brioche and toasted bread with an undercurrent of dried fruits and nuts (hazelnuts, almonds). A mature round wine with a silky finish combining hints of candied fruit and vanilla.
