Leclerc Briant is a trailblazing Champagne house producing wines of singular energy and nerve. Lucien Leclerc founded the winery with four hectares of vineyards in Cumieres in 1872. The business moved to ?pernay in 1955 when Bertrand Leclerc married Jacqueline Briant and formed the negociant firm which still carries their name. Leclerc Briant was an early adopter of organic practices beginning in the 1960?s and was one of the first to bottle single-vineyard Champagnes starting in the 1970?s. In the late 1980?s, Bertrand and Jacqueline?s son, Pascal, began integrating biodynamic principles and part of the production has been Demeter certified since 2003. Today, enologist Herve Jestin continues the legacy of this visionary house.
?This is soft and creamy in texture, with a subtle, mouthwatering quality that enlivens rich notes of saffron, baked quince, chalky mineral and pickled ginger. Well-knit and elegant, with a lingering, spiced finish. Disgorged April 2017. Drink now through 2021. 4,000 cases made
