Meunier Vieilles Vignes

Collection Privée

AVAILABLE IN
  • 75cl

100% Meunier, this cuvée “Meunier Vieilles Vignes” is a luscious Champagne combining the power & perfume of Meunier as well as it’s mineral sweetness.

A blend of 4 crus of the Champenois grape variety Meunier. 50% of the blend is vinified in Champenois oak barrels respecting our ancestral method. This wine-making process gives a brioche and savoury note to the wine. This cuvée is based on more than 50% of a single parcel planted in 1921, on Epernay’s hillside, which gives the characteristic of old vines and brings a rich and powerful personality to the wine. The Cru from Festigny completes the blending and brings strength, richness and tension to the wine. Furthermore, the Premier Cru from Chigny-les-Roses gives the fullness and the suppleness. Finally, the Premier Cru from Rilly-la-Montagne insures harmony between each Cru.

This generous wine will perfectly pair with a tartar of scallops and other shellfish, forest mushrooms and beef, foie gras and homestyle charcuterie.

Champagne Collet Meunier Vieilles Vignes Collection Privée is aged for a minimum of 4 years in the heart of our underground century old limestone cellars in Aÿ.

Appearence

Luminous and dense yellow-gold hue flecked with straw-yellow tints, displaying fi ne and vivid bubbles.

Nose

Fruity and expressive on the first nose, mixed with notes of mango, peach, pear and quince, we then find notes of cherry, pineapple, passion fruit and some spicy, iodised, honeyed hints.

Palate

The palate is clear and fresh, highlighted by an orangey acidity followed by a sandy-clay minerality which provides fruit concentration, chewiness, salinity and good length. The finish is full and luscious, where the strength meets the delicate mineral notes finishing with a juicy acid line.
