Pur Meunier

Meunier with strong personality

Tasting note

The wine is light gold, and the bubbles are thin and lively.

The nose offers hints of acacia and blossom then ripe stone fruit with a touch of nut and brioche.

The balance of fruit and freshness is charming. On the finish, you can taste a lively minerality. With a very low dosage, this wine shows the pure style of Meunier.

Food pairing

There is nothing like a glass of Meunier, on its own. So, you can really appreciate it, with appetizers. The mineral character of oysters makes it shine. If you wish to reveal all the aromas of this wines, a Comté soufflé is a good option. Really delicious!

Composition : 100% Pinot Meunier
Dosage : 3g/l

Rosé de Saignée

Real Rosé

Tasting note

In a macerated pink Champagne, colour and aromas are natural and they appear naturally. You can taste freshly harvested grapes. « This wine is born pink » says Patrick Sourdet.

It has a really intense colour with vermilion hue. The mousse itself is pale pink!

The nose offers aromas of peony, rose and pomegranate, then ripe cassis and red cherry.

There is so much fruit on the palate, and so much vivacity! This is really a good example of the style of our house. On the finish, red fruit notes with hints of spice makes a long length.

Food pairing

This is a real rosé with a very low dosage, perfect for food matching. It is, of course, very good on its own but it can be a good friend for raw salmon, ceviche or scallops. If you look for something warmer, chicken with a creamy sauce and roasted veal are simply perfect.

Composition : 100% Pinot Meunier
Dosage : 6g/l

Millésimé 2016

The expression of an exceptional vintage

Tasting note

The wine is bright and gold with fine bubbles.

The exceptional style of the vintage, combined to long lees ageing, are obvious from the very beginning with delicate hints of flowers and dry fruit.

On the palate, it tells all its secrets. There is a very fine mousse, roundness on the mid-palate, silky texture and a long-lasting finish with quince and spice.

Food pairing

It is time to think to something tasty and authentic, like grilled scallops or lemon veal scallopini. You can also try braised chicken or matured goat cheese.

The Chardonnay

The slow-growing Chardonnay is the ideal grape variety for aging wines. It brings to our blendings minerality and vivacity.

L' Atypique 2015

100% Chardonnay

Tasting note

What a clear and bright colour at first!

This is Chardonnay, yes, but a quite intense version. All the range of aromas of this beloved grape variety emerges from the glass with hints of flowers and white fruit with a touch of spice.

There is such a lovely finesse in this wine! The mousse is delicate, and all the wine shows the elegant style of our house. The finish has a toasty character coming from the oak cask ageing.

Food pairing

With such a strong personality, everything is possible! In order to let it shine, you can pair it with salt crust cod or braised squid. If you are a fan of Japanese food, this wine is made for you. At fall time, you can have a glass with chicken and mushrooms with a creamy sauce.
