Champagne Brut is an elegant and delicious sparkling wine, always related to celebrations, excitement and happiness. You can buy this wine in our online store with the assurance that you will find variety.
This champagne brut comes from France, specifically from the Champagne region, which gives it its name and in turn gives it the Protected Designation of Origin. The charming bubbling effect is acquired thanks to the second fermentation carried out in bottle, using the Champenoise Method. We can find this delight in its white and rosé versions, both excellent.
In our online store you can find a variety of exquisite champagnes, but this time we want to highlight Marie Clugny Champagne , because it is one of the most outstanding in our catalogue.
Made with a variety of 85% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay is one of the most excellent champagnes on the market. Its aging is about 36 months. The bottles are kept in the cellars for a minimum of 15 months in a horizontal position and then placed in the "sur pointe" position (upside down). This detail is only a part of its careful maturation process. This champagne is a real gem.
It refers specifically to the amount of added sugar contained in this drink, giving it more or less sweet touches.
For Champagne Brut, we found that it contains about 15 grams of sugar per liter, which puts it in the middle of the scale of these drinks. For some it is the perfect sweet, which enhances the flavors and aromas of this sparkling wine, without detracting from its elegance or overshadowing its qualities.
The grapes used to make these sparkling wines are Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Arbanne and Petit Meslier. These grapes have the qualities that provide those touches of flavor and exquisite aromas to give life to the best champagne.
As with wines, it all starts with the vintage which is the time when the level of sweetness of the liquor is adjusted. This happens when the bottle has completed the time of the second fermentation and the degüelle moment arrives, which consists of removing the lees from that second fermentation to get champagne bright and clean.
It is there that the expedition liqueur is added that contains wine, sugar and some ingredient that gives it additional touches, according to the personal formula of the creator of the drink. At that moment, if the amount of glucose is around 15 grams per liter, Champagne acquires the Brut category.
When we read the tasting notes of these sparkling wines we find that they’re described as sweet, but not too much, and moderately acidic. With astringent sensations that give them the category of dry wines or Semi-Dry wines, a characteristic they acquire given the fermentation time and the presence of tannins.
Its fruity and woody aromas sneak in between the floral ones that can be predominant along with spices, and sometimes with yeast tones. The same goes for the taste, which harmonizes with the smells and stays in the mouth long enough to leave a very refreshing sensation.
We find it in the Marie Clugny Champagne, made with 85% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay. After having 36 months of ageing it comes to your hands to offer you a unique experience, ideal to accompany you on any special occasion, making the moment unforgettable.
Champagne is served cold, between 8°C and 10°C and some experts recommend even between 5°C and 7°C. Ideally in a tulip glass, served at 2/3 to be able to enjoy its exquisite and intoxicating aroma. It should be made of glass or translucent, to observe its playful bubbles and the bright and vivid golden and pink tones.
