The NV (2016) La Rue des Noyers, 100% Meunier, is one of the most distinctive, moving Champagnes I tasted this year. When vinified alone, Meunier often yields wines with overt richness. The 2016 has plenty of depth, but it is also remarkably translucent. A whole range of spice and savory notes add striking aromatic nuance to the expansive red-toned fruit. The 2016 is not an obvious wine, but it is mesmerizing and captivating in every way. It was vinified in oak and finished with one gram per liter of dosage. Disgorged: May 28, 2020. - Antonio Galloni

Product Description:

Benoit is an eighth generation vigneron that returned to the family estate after working for Bollinger. He is committed to natural farming and aims to craft unadultered, pure Pinot Meunier. He purchased this 1.7 hectare vineyard and farms it biodynamically. The results are exceptional and we are thrilled to introduce Benoit's work to our clients. The Cuvee La Rue de Noyers, named for the walnut trees that line the parcel, is a wine that will keep you intrigued and coming back for more.
