Champagne Brice -AOC - Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru - Extra Brut

VAT included

The Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru from Maison Brice is a Champagne that is both lively, refined, and generous, offering remarkable balance. It pairs well with both elegant aperitifs and gourmet dishes. It is a Champagne that is taut, elegant, flavorful, and perfectly balanced, ideal for both refined aperitifs and accompanying gourmet meals.

This Champagne is made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from the Grand Cru terroir of Bouzy, focusing on three specific plots: Les Chantereines, Les Grosses Pierres, and Les Cercets.

Crafted by Christophe Constant, the cellar master of Maison Brice, a significant portion of this Blanc de Noirs is aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve its freshness. A small quantity is also aged in 228-liter oak barrels to impart complexity and richness. Malolactic fermentation is avoided to maintain optimal tension.

It is Extra Brut (4g/l dosage), subtly emphasizing the aromatic expression and richness of this Blanc de Noirs.


Pairing: Ideal as an aperitif, alongside grilled fish, a fine white meat, or fatty fish.

Taste: The Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru Brice reveals pronounced aromas of ripe yellow fruits on the nose, complemented by delicate hints of bakery and subtle spices. On the palate, this Champagne stands out with a crisp and elegant attack, offering a delicate and silky texture. Palates will experience refreshing notes of fresh fruits and citrus mid-taste. The finish is both beautiful and dynamic, marked by a slight saline touch that quickly fades.

The Estate and the Vineyard

In 1945, René Brice took over the family estate, modernized it, and completed replantations following the phylloxera crisis. He expanded the family cellars and launched the first Champagne Brice cuvées, marking the tenth generation of the family.

In 1966, Jean-Paul Brice returned to the estate and developed the vineyards in the Aube department. In 1994, he injected new dynamism into the family by becoming a wine merchant and joining the Union des Maisons de Champagne. Since then, external grape supplies have complemented the family vineyards, allowing for increased production and marking the eleventh generation.

The Bouzy vineyard, classified as Grand Cru, has been owned by the Brice family since the late 17th century. The estate actively promotes biodiversity, cultivating vines without chemical pesticides or insecticides, and has been certified organic since the 2023 harvest.

The soils are tilled with a plow, and the vineyards primarily feature grape varieties from familial mass selections. The average age of the vines is 45 years, ensuring the quality and authenticity of the terroir.

To supplement their own grape production, the Brice family has fostered strong relationships with grape suppliers for 30 years. This includes sourcing from five hectares of premier crus, comprising two hectares of Chardonnay in Grauves and three hectares in Hautvillers, which have been undergoing organic conversion since 2023. These five hectares are fully managed by the Maison's viticultural team.

To ensure the best quality grapes during harvest, the family hosts a team of housed and fed harvesters. This meticulous approach allows for careful grape sorting and optimal harvesting times, respecting and attending to the vines' needs.

During harvest, grapes are collected by specific plots to select the best juices and accurately map the Bouzy terroir.
