They're still not so many of them, but here's another champagne that’s almost entirely Pinot Meunier.
- The Meunier’s deep personality comes through in this nicely taut wine that elegantly displays the qualities of its terroir.
Aromas of apricots, mangos, lime and vanilla lead the way to a champagne that’s savory with a racy acidity and flavors of fresh pastry and hazelnuts.
- Perfect on its own, with roast chicken, shellfish and sushi. The sophisticated and intriguing flavors fit with watching Succession, Downton Abbey or Knives Out.
