No. 1 Assemble
Nº 1 Family Estate, established 1997, is a boutique Methode Champenoise winery, situated on Marlborough’s “Golden Mile” – Rapaura Road. It is the only Marlborough winery specialising in the production of Methode Traditionelle. Proprietors, Adele and Daniel Le Brun, are committed to producing premium Methode Traditionelle made only in the strictest methods stipulated in the stringent rules laid down by winemaker Daniel Le Brun’s native home, Champagne.
Assemblé (pronounced ASS-‐OM-‐BLAY) is a fitting stablemate for our Cuvee No 1 (100% Chardonnay) and No 1 Rosé (100% Pinot Noir) as it assembles both the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay into a traditional blend.
