100% Meunier, Dosage: 6 g/l
Terroir: The vines are located in the municipalities of Festigny and Le Breuil.
Soil: A silty, clay limestone, characteristic of the Marne valley.
Vines: Average age of the plots is 43 years.
Harvest: Manually harvested with careful monitoring and control of grape maturity. We use two pneumatic presses, 2000 and 4000 kgs capacity.
Wine Making: Each plot’s produce is stored separately in stainless steel or enamelled steel tanks. Bottled in 2015 with careful control of the second fermentation. After an average “in bottle” ageing of 24 months each cuvée is disgorged on a favourable date chosen according to the lunar calendar. This date is indicated on the label.
Gault&Millau 2017 : 15/20
“A beautiful effervescence slow and controlled. The nose unveils a full and deep palate, pure-bred and fruity (cherry, raspberry, wild rose) over a dry base, carried by beautiful sour notes (almond). On the palate the wine is flavoursome, airy with a long finish. Would accompany strawberry and mint soup.”
