No. 1 Family Estate Rosé and No. 1 Reserve Methodes


Daniel and Adele Le Brun are pioneers of Marlborough sparkling wine, and arguably remain the best method traditionnelle producers in the region to date. What makes No. 1 Family Estate a superlative label is the diversity of styles allied to exceptional character and quality. There are wines that are right down the line which are impeccably made, as well as cuvees that are impressive in their depth, distinctiveness and complexity. The expertise and passion are clear to see in the wines, and the branding and marketing is sophisticated and stylish, matching the wines. One of the Le Brun’s catch-phrases is "Hearts in Marlborough since 1980, roots in Champagne since 1684”. This reflects the family expertise in Daniel’s background in making Champagne, and the belief in the terroir and quality of fruit that emanates from Marlborough. Here, I review two current releases from the No. 1 Family portfolio that demonstrate what the Le Bruns are all about, the ‘No. 1’ Rosé NV and .’Reserve’ ’Cuvee No 1’ NV. www.no1familyestate.co.nz
