Brut Champagne

See Brut Champagne producers See a list of Brut Champagne wines

Brut denotes a dry style of Champagne (less than 15g/l). Most Champagne is non-vintage, produced from a blend from difererent years. The non-vintage blend is always based predominately on wines made from the current harvest, enriched with aged wines (their proportion and age varies by brand) from earlier harvests, which impart an additional level of complexity to the end wine. Champagnes from a single vintage are labelled with the year reference and with the description Millésimé.

Non-vintage Champagnes can improve with ageing (typically 2-3 years), while vintages can can develop over several years (5-30 years). The most exquisite and often top-priced expression of a house’s style is referred as Prestige Cuvée.  Famous examples include Louis Roederer's Cristal, Moët & Chandon's Dom Pérignon, and Pol Roger's Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill.
