In Champagne culture, a special place is reserved for brut champagne. Since Champagne making's infancy, Brut has been considered a sure sign of the excellence of its origins, and this is probably on of the things that makes this variety of bubbly so revered. A best-selling Champagne, this Champagne signature is the staple of every house, and also one which provides some of the greatest competition.
As an aperitif, champagne brut excels. Fresh and fruity, it's the ideal accompaniment to a number of appetizers and something with enough character and intrigue to be alluring to all wine lovers.
The epitome of finesse and elegance, Champagne Blanc de Blancs – made purely from Chardonnay grapes – is generous in floral notes and diverse in its interaction with food. Cocktails match wonderfully with the Brut, as does fish and a number of seafood dishes.
Champagne Blanc de Noirs, on the other hand, is a different animal entirely. More vinous and powerful, it is a drink rich in fruity aromas, and one that offers a special attraction when paired-up with an excellent meal.
