A stunning and seductive pure Meunier champagne. Medium gold with sparse bubbles but a nice level of creaminess. The plethora of red fruit dance on the nose along with oak. Pears and peaches along with orange peel.
From Vrigny and aged on lees for seven years so there’s that added maturity and character. A very clean and precise champagne that still manages to envelope you in warmth and excitement. Positively enchanting and approachable immediately.
Very fresh and lively in the mouth. Immediate tension on the tongue. Plums and raspberries on the palate with a kick of spice for good measure. A lovely Meunier from an outstanding house. — 2 months ago
Meunier 70% gives it a lot of omph. Nice sherbet finish. — a year ago
Such a gorgeous color. Opens floral (rose water) and fruity (tart cherry) with loads of yeasty biscuity goodness. Quickly develops into something more savory / umami with air and warmth (mushroom, hazelnut), flavors that carry through on the loaded finish. A brawny champagne with some perceptible, but soft tannin. No dosage and none needed. Atypical, but I’m a fan of what this family is doing.
Celebrating my WSETDip D4&D5 results and having an empty apartment to myself.

Quite deep ruby garnet , showing a bit of development . Quite round and dark fruited , quite exuberant. On the palate good acidity , more mix of red and dark fruits . Touch mineral on the finish . Interesting and enjoyable . After a while shows more rustic tannin , needs a bit of food. Probably better a little younger , so that more dense fruit would cover those rather rustic tannins, though this has aged quite well. Drink now — 10 months ago
