A very pretty champagne in a very pretty package. A beautiful light salmon color. Preciously precise miniature bubbles and a nose that’s as fresh as it is generous. Rose petals and strawberries. Wet soil, dried cherries, and chalk. Blood oranges show after some air along with vanilla and spice.
When people ask me what is my favorite rosé, the answer is always unequivocally this lovely 100% Meunier from Aurelien Laherte. Biodynamic and natural, the purity of fruit here is undeniable. Use your big glasses to really give this to space to breathe and you’ll be rewarded. Low dosage of 2.5 but honestly you’ll never feel it. It’s so harmonious and so drinkable that a bottle never really lasts long.
Exquisite in the mouth showcasing its vinous nature and charm. More robust fruit on the palate along with salinity and subtle spice. High acidity but not searing with plenty of body. Seriously, just buy these anytime you see them. However many you have just isn’t enough. — 6 days ago
Pinot Meunier may be the most underrated wine varietal there is. Typically only used in a blend to make Champagne, it works amazingly well on its own as a red table wine. Teutonic gets it. Hard describe, but think of the best of Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Merlot. — 8 days ago
Pale straw coloration. On the nose, citrus, buttered toast, pear and apple. On the palate, apple, pear, citrus, and a long finish that incorporates buttery toast as well. Good acidity that’s lends crispness but balanced nicely allowing for full robust finish. — 2 days ago
Liquid gold. Expressive bouquet of red baked apples, 'golden key' cake, white stone fruits with citrus touch. Vinous, well balanced, intense, but it's open and friendly.
