"Meunier expresses here as barley, rusks, crackers, and so
the wine is rusky, coppery-saline, iodé, mineral and
appetizing. It’s beautifully expressive of a corner of
Champagne, and tastes as though it were fined with sel gris.
This year it’s 50% 2013 and 50% a perpetual reserve
started in 1998. Deg 1/2016, it’s 55% Meunier (higher than
usual), 25% CH, 20% PN and 5% “other” (which means
basically everything that wouldn’t fit in the vats); it’s in form,
brassy and oyster; after a dip a couple years ago (for which
we have our old friend 2011 to thank) this is better than
ever." -Terry Theise, Importer
