A family-owned grower Champagne based in the village of Ecueil, Louis Brochet was founded in the 18th century by matriarch Marie Arsène Brochet, who personally selected the vines used for massal selection. The first Brochet label appeared in 1881. The Extra Noir is 100% Pinot Noir and ferments in oak barrels. Winery notes: "Our Extra Noir has a nicely intense straw-yellow colour. Effervescence is sustained yet dense, composed of very fine bubbles. The first nose reveals delicate vanilla notes, which evolve into generous pastry notes that give the wine roundness and maturity. In the mouth, the attack enchants with its softness and its rich, full-bodied, generous character. The finish explodes in the mouth with its freshness, liveliness and a touch of coated acidity."

This all Pinot Noir blanc de noir is the smallest production Champagne for Brochet. They only make it when the Pinot Noir is great and then 2000 bottles at most. We were lucky enough to get five cases. It is sourced from two old massal selected plots, the Hautes Vignes and Les Chaillots. I couldn’t believe the crazy complexity of this wine; it had Chambertin like dark cherry power, but was still super easy to drink. The Pinot power was framed by fine brioche toast and the finish goes on forever.
