Pinot Meunier

Egly-Ouriet

"Les Vignes De Vrigny" 1er Cru Brut Champagne Pinot Meunier

One of our “house” pours when it comes to bubbles. Med gold in the glass, gazillions of tiny bubbles. Aroma has hints of juicy ripe red and tart Granny Smith apples. Round, rich, wonder wash that gathers and spreads the flavor as you swallow. Cold, pre-holiday Friday night in front of the fireplace in Michigan. Cheers, and happy, joyous Thanksgiving wishes to Delectable. — 12 days ago

Domaine Chandon

California Brut Chardonnay Blend 2019

Nose: cream, cereal. Citrus. Taste: about the same. Does not have the texture of champagne. Good stuff. But - probably wouldn’t buy again for the price. 89. — 4 days ago

Cuvée de "La Rue des Noyers" Champagne Pinot Meunier

Disgorged 7/19 v.15. Brilliant, bright shiny gold with pin-point teeny bubbles. Nicely dry and plenty of acidity balancing the Granny Smith/crunchy green pear.. Long, caressing finish. I need to drink more of this wine! — 18 days ago

Pinot Meunier 2017

Pretty cool to find a single varietal Pinot Meunier especially out of Oregon!

Fantastic evolution. Needs 30 minutes to open up initially. Nose is pretty subtle still but the pallet really opens to become much more intense than the color suggests. Cherry, cola, plum, and slight earth, backed by solid acid and balanced tannins. After an hour it turns into darker, warmer fruit, spices, and currants.

Nose is subtle with yeast and an generous honeysuckle richness. The palate matches with a generous apricot and honeysuckle middle that fades slowly in great balance, it’s supported with a soft balanced acidity and fine bubbles. — 14 days ago

Moussé Fils

Les Vignes de Mon Village Blanc de Meuniers Champagne Pinot Meunier

A shimmering pale bronze color in the glass. Fast paced perlage with quickly dissipating bubbles. A fully mature, complex nose with orchard fruits and orange marmalade wafting from the glass. Lifted aromatics of apples
of all sorts along with sweet butter and the faintest touch of cinnamon. So interesting and it just keeps impressing as time goes by. Shaved almonds and hot bread with a bit of jasmine.

I love everything Cédric Moussé puts out. One of the true Masters of Meunier in champagne. The terroir of Cuisles speaks so clearly here. Pure Pinot Meunier, disgorged in January of 2018 with no dosage. Racy, yet slightly restrained acidity and exquisite balance. As time goes on and this grows in the glass, that lack of dosage is so very appreciated and resplendent. Everything in tune here.

Nice minerality and overall vitality here. The palate follows the nose closely with more butter and cinnamon and mint. Crisp citrus fruit notes and fantastic subdued strawberry. Wet chalk, moist stones, and delicious red cherries. Medium long finish that really makes you regret you don’t have more. An outstanding effort from one of my favorite producers that brings the excellence every single time.

Les Voirmissa Blanc de Noirs 2014

Good and fun bubbles. For the geeks out there: barrel ferment, wild yeast. 2014. just over 3 barrels made. Dosage 2 grams. 6yrs before disgorgement. And it tastes like all of that. High acid, with a mellow mature old toast. Oxygen. White cherry. Baked apricot. Preserved lemon. — a month ago
