The first cuvée from J.M. Labruyère, this extra-brut introduces the philosophy of the family : terroir-driven, low dosage in order to underline the natural ripeness of their grapes and 4 years of aging on lees (liqueur d'expedition). The wine offers intriguing complexity, with aromas of dried fruits, enhanced by subtle toasty aromas and roasted hazelnut. Rich and harmonious on the palate, the beautiful structure of Pinot Noir is exquisitely intertwined with the tension and energy of Chardonnay.

The history of the Labruyère Family started in 1850, when the founder of the Macon family branch, Jean-Marie, settles down in Les Thorins, which became part of the Moulin-à-Vent appellation in 1924. Since then, every generation has contributed to the preservation and the development of this viticultural treasure. Jean-Pierre Labruyère, President of Labruyère Eberlé Group for more than 30 years, passed the reins of the estate to his son Edouard in 2008, in order to create a leading winery in the appellation.
Meanwhile two other chapters of the Labruyères wine history had been written.
In 1988, Jean-Pierre Labruyère took over the control of the prestigious Domaine Jacques Prieur with a group of investors, to protect this Burgundian jewel. And in 1992, Jean-Pierre becomes the first Burgundian owner to invest in Bordeaux as he acquired 18 hectares of the best terroirs in Pomerol; it was a new start for Château Rouget.
In 2012 the Labruyère family decided to complete its mosaic of terroirs with vineyards in Verzenay, a Champagne Grand Cru village renowned for its Pinot Noir. Owning all our vineyards, we are able to master each stage in the wine-growing and winemaking processes with terroir, tradition and the excellence, being our core values.
In tribute to his ancestor who preceded him by six generations, Edouard decided to name this new domaine, J.M. Labruyère.
The origin of the estate goes back to the 1820, the year when its beautiful cellars were built, and the first bottles saw daylight in 1863. Several families owned the property and vineyards on exceptional Grand Cru terroirs during the 20th century and in 2012 they made a choice to entrust the keys of their wine jewel to another family of vine growers from Burgundy: Labruyère. Today the entire team is dedicated to bringing the domaine among Grower's Champagne elite by combining traditions, sustainable agriculture, haute-couture vinification, Burgundian know-how and vineyard designated approach to let each terroir show itself.
