Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2021

Adele & Daniel Le Brun were the pioneers of Methode Traditionelle in Marlborough starting the Le Brun label in 1980 with the first release in 1985. In fact Daniel Le Brun has been called the Grandfather of Méthode Traditionelle in New Zealand. The Estate now operates under the No 1 Family Estate label (The Le Brun brand was sold to Lion in 1996). 

Daniel is involved in every stage of creating the wines and is somewhat of a perfectionist, never wavering in his commitment to creating wine the way he learned from his father in Champagne. 

The structure of Chardonnay, the finesse of Pinot Noir and the softness of Meunier have been brought together for 3 years on lees, in the classic Méthode Traditionelle style. This wine has elegance, complexity and wide appeal. Aromas of autolysis, peach, baked apple and citrus. A fine mousse, bold acidity and flavours that reflect the nose. Composition: 60% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier

5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2023 (NV)
"Beautifully composed and expressed, the inviting bouquet shows ripe apple, lemon peel, almond meal and white floral aromas, followed by a gorgeously creamy palate offering excellent weight and fine flow. Splendidly framed by juicy acidity, making it elegantly flavoursome and highly enjoyable. A blend of 50% Chardonnay, 43% Pinot Noir & 7% Pinot Meunier; aged on lees for 3+ years."

Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (NV)
"A classic blend of Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir and Meunier – presents aromas and flavours of white peaches and apples, pears and sweet lemon. A calm yet rounded and gently spicy leesy autolysis with a developing complexity. Dry, weighty, fruity, fleshy and leesy with fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Balanced and poised for more development in your cellar, but totally drinkable today as an aperitif or with cured salmon, charcutérie or cold chicken cuts."

94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, December 2022 (NV)
"A silken-textured blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier that spent three years on the lees. Perhaps the unusual (in NZ) addition of pinot meunier is responsible, but I find the wine very Champagne-like, making it excellent value at this price. An appealing combination of freshness with baguette crust yeastiness."
