Bründlmayer Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut
Sekt Austria Reserve
The first impression is fresh, crisp and pure and leads to a finely woven bouquet with scents of blossom nectar, a whiff of red fruit & lime, some yeasty spice and lightly toasted brioche. The persistent perlage and elegant acidity, provides a vibrant entry on the palate and forms the backbone. Almost creamy at first, but then, very dense, with a juvenile verve; hay-flowers, touch of honey, hints of citrus and red berries add nobility to this clean and straight wine, impressing with a lingering, animating finish.
The Pinot Noir grapes for the Blanc de Noirs stem from various vineyard sites around Langenlois, mainly those on southeast slopes with calcareous soils, which lend depth and at the same time freshness to the base-wine.

The must fermented in stainless steel tanks, underwent also malolactic fermentation before the resulting base wine being racked into used Austrian oak barrels (300 - or 2.500- litres) with 10% of the total yeast.
Only in 2018, the base wine was bottled (‘tirage’) for its 2nd fermentation. The young sparkling wine then stayed in contact with the yeast for at least another 45 months (‘sur lattes’) before undergoing riddling (‘remuage’) and finally ‘disgorgement’ in our cellars.
Bründlmayer Blanc de Noirs Große Reserve
The bouquet is complex with scents of blossom nectar and ripe lime together with a note of lightly toasted brioche. The persistent perlage and elegant acidity, provides a vibrant entry on the palate and forms the backbone. Very dense and compact with, again, hints of red berries. Rich, yet with a fine structure, this wine is clean and straight with a lingering, refreshing finish.
