🏅 Rating 93/100 (4,3⭐)
Strawberry compote and estragon herbs.
Intense aromatics and perfect acidity.
Really enjoyed this saignée. Paired with beef tartare.
Exclusively from Meunier coming from the oldest lieu-dit Les Bouts de la Ville. 144 hours cold pre-mentation maceration. Unlike most of Mousse wines, fermented in barrel, no malo.
36 months on lees, 2,5 g/l dosage.
Top class rosé.

The prestige Cuvée of the house, equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from vines dating back up to 70 years. Plenty of tension and youthful energy going on here. Nice acidity and structure with a lot of personality.
Pale shimmering gold with not a lot of bubbles and nice effervescence. A nice floral bouquet of citrus fruits and flowers. Pears and pineapples are dominant here with plenty of apples to help out. The palate is the height of harmony and finesse. There’s a subtle elegance with plenty of depth and complexity. An outstanding champagne with years left in the game. — 2 months ago
Stunningly beautiful stuff. A clear light salmon in the glass with tiny, persistent bubbles. Wonderful effervescence and a creamy mousse. Wild strawberries explode on the nose upfront with darker cherries beneath. Plenty of yeast to compliment. There’s a minerality here that you just don’t find on most rosés of the same nature.
This is not a lightweight, inconsequential rosé at all. Mostly Pinot Meunier with a slight dash of Pinot Noir, this has weight and depth for ages. Disgorged on 3/19 with only 4 g/l dosage, it’s dry and extraordinarily fruity in the mouth. Round and impeccably structured with nice acidity.
On the palate there’s faint notes of smoke and then opens up in a wave of cream and cherries. Those strawberries attack again, supported by baked biscuits and a touch of cloves. Medium long finish with spice. This is my favorite of the year. It provided such a good time. — 5 months ago
