About Brimoncourt Champagne House

Back in 2008, Alexandre Cornot bought the rights to the Brimoncourt name. This boutique house has a modest but high quality selection of fresh, youthful Champagnes. Their outlook for the brand is modern, progressive and self-described as ‘free spirited’. These qualities are unmistakably present in their wines whose taste profiles would be best described as bright, structured and bold.

This house has made significant inroads into the Asian Pacific market in a short space of time. We will be watching with keen interest in the future as their aged wine reserves grow and this depth may be used to add further complexity to their range.
