Meunier Vieilles Vignes
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.
