A signature of the domaine, this 100% Pinot Meunier cuvée is made with reserve wines taken from 2016 (70%) and 2015 (30%). Traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks, with no malolactic fermentation allowed to take place which helps the wine to maintain a bright, fresh, mineral character. It is then bottled and left on the lees for about 36 months - far longer than appellation rules dicate for a non-vintage champagne. Dosage is low at 6g per litre.
Visually an attractive, slightly pink colour with pale gold highlights. The nose is aromatic with scented peony and red berries, followed by more red fruit, and delicate brioche on the palate with the mineral quality and touch of salinity that is typical of Pinot Meunier from Passy-sur-Marne.
