Bacchus Wines PLDC Ltd., an independent estate-wine merchant, is pleased to announce their UK-exclusive partnership with Champagne house Paul Lebrun.
Available via the online shop or consultation, the Paul Lebrun Champagne collection will join Château de Parenchère and Château du Rooy as part of their French wine selection. The UK-exclusive deal will see Bacchus Wines as the sole distributor of the award-winning Champagne.
Trond Rornes, Co-Founder of Bacchus Wines PLDC, explains; “We are very excited to bring the fantastic champagnes by Paul Lebrun to the UK market. The Champagne house has been expertly making Champagne for generations, and we love the unique character and the rich taste of Chardonnay their Champagnes offer. We know our customers will love them as much as we do.”
Founded in 1902, Paul Lebrun draws its inspiration from multi-generational winemaking know-how. The vineyards of the Maison are largely located on the prestigious Côte des Blancs in Cramant, one of the 17 villages classified as Grand Cru in Champagne. Through their wines, the Vignier-Lebrun family seeks to highlight the unique character and the rich taste of Chardonnay. It is the only grape variety grown on their chalky soils south of Épernay and on the soils rich in rolled pebbles in Sézanne, which are rare in the Champagne vineyards. Aged in cellars dug into limestone, keeping the temperatures constant all year round, offering quality and consistency.
Bacchus Wines will stock three Paul Lebrun Champagnes made from 100% Chardonnay. The three cuvées include,
- Carte d’Or Brut offers a brilliant pale gold colour, fine bubbles, and a nose of candied lemon, peaches and pears.
- Extra Brut has a yellow robe, delicate bubbles, elegant notes of white blossom, grapefruit and pineapple and low sugar content.
- Cuvee Prestige Brut is a stunning champagne aged on lees for a minimum of forty-eight months, offering an intense structure, tiny bubbles, ripe peach, and nectarine notes.
Independent chef Tim Whittam told us, “I served the Extra Brut Champagne at my Burns Night supper club. The citrus notes and creaminess complimented my salmon’s salty, smoky notes. The Champagne solicited much praise from the diners!” Anders Cassel, Partner at Kingsgate Associates, adds; “I have enjoyed drinking good quality Champagne for more than forty years, and the Cuvée Prestige from Paul Lebrun is amongst the best I have ever tried!”
Bacchus Wines PLDC plans to add new lines from hand-picked family-owned wine estates to their collection throughout 2023. And are pleased to offer hand-picked wines to restaurants, bars, and private wine enthusiasts.
