Le Brun de Neuville’s emblematic Tradition range expresses the freshness of the grape variety and the chalky minerality of our soil. Aged a minimum of 48 months on lees, these Champagnes are generous, with a mineral purity.


Tasting notes

The Champagne depicts a dress with a strong green yellow colour, with pale yellow hints. Of a rather fluid and shining aspect, it is lively with fine and vivid bubbles which create a delicate bottle-neck.

The first nose reveals a flavour of hawthorn and acacia, wet chalk, peppermint, green apple, fresh grapes with a touch of anise. When aerated, it turns to notes of whipped cream, chives, lemon zests and yellow grapefruit with a pinch of nutmeg.

Freshness and minerality

The approach in the palate is soft and fresh with a creamy and melted effervescence. The wine develops a sensation of citrus pulp, apple and pear flesh, enhanced by zesty aromas which bring freshness to the whole. The mid-palate is orchestrated with a very pure chalky minerality. The final is dressed with a fleshy fruity combined with a chalky elegance and a subtle dosage, to deliver an ultimate sensation of creamy and iodized melt.

Food pairings

Prawns in dill and lemon juice, Hake tartar with fennel seeds, thinly sliced Crab with whipped cream and fresh basil, salmon tartar, carpaccio of Scallops in variety olive oil, Sea Bass in creamy sauce with small spring vegetables, fresh Goat's cheese ...
