About Maison Brimoncourt: Champagne Brimoncourt is the brainchild of the dapperly dressed Alexandre Cornot, who saw the potential to breathe new life into the Champagne Brimoncourt label which had been left dormant since the 1950’s. Alexandre was born in Reims into a family with a military and arts background. Originally starting out in the Navy and then as a corporate lawyer in New York, Alexandre arrived at his idea by a circuitous and interesting route. One of his clients offered him an opportunity in the arts world to follow his creative interests, allowing him to quit his career and take up placement at Christies. Encouraged by his success, he returned to France and set up as an art dealer in Paris. He eventually found himself back in Reims after taking the opportunity to invest in an ailing printing business, specialising in Champagne labels. This move became the catalyst for reinventing Brimoncourt as a modern Maison de Champagne. It took some 6 years of research to court the right grape growers and to build the trusting relationships that would ensure the continuity of the house style.
The planning for Brimoncourt began in 2008. Brimoncourt was established in Aÿ and it’s first releases were in 2014.
