LE BRUN DE NEUVILLE
For over 150 years, the Le Brun de Neuville family
has resided on the heights of B¨¦thon. The memory of
Lady Le Brun de Neuville, who owned the Chateau
until the 19th century, still lives in the hearts of
its tenants. Her noble heir to the Chateau and
founder of the Cave, Lady de Reviers, later
post-humorously awarded her the name ¡°Le Brun de
The Domain of LeBrun de Neuville covers 152 hectares
of vines, located in the dale of S¨¦zannais¡¯ knolls
in one of the Champagne region¡¯s cradles.
This territory hold very particular components: its
climate, soil, under-soil, and reliefs combine to
create a specific combination that draws out each
vine¡¯s very best. The Coast of S¨¦zanne rests on
affluent clay. This AOC vinery, supporting
reasonable culture, also benefits from a
micro-climate that protects its vines.
The cave turns 88% of its vines into Chardonnay, a
variety especially eminent in Champagne for its
finesse and typical floral aromas.
The Champagne ages within the B¨¦thon domain, a
continuous process beginning in tanks and
progressing to bottles in contact with dead yeast.
These bottles are stocked 18 metres underground, in
caves at 14 degrees, and age on wooden planks for
multiple years. The House of LeBrun de Neuville
imposes on its bottles a rest period of at least 36
months, far above the forced 15 months.
After long months of aging in the silence of the
domain¡¯s caves, the bottles are put to the final
steps of Champagne-making that will give them their
tones of noblesse.
Amongst the high-class clients of Le Brun de
Neuville are found numerous prestigious restaurants.
For many years, Marseille¡¯s Villa Massalia,
Chamali¨¨res¡¯ Le Radio, Paris¡¯ Le Lutetia and the
Georges V, Évian¡¯s La Verniaz, and Cucuron¡¯s La
Petite Maison have offered their international
clients Le Brun de Neuville selections.
