"The finest wine of the estate, though, is the Pinot Meunier Vieilles Vignes, now renamed as Monodie en Meunier Majeur. First made in the 2002 vintage, this vintage-dated, single-vineyard meunier is sourced from three different parcels of vines in L’Arpent (which is really called Dessus le Bois des Châtaigniers on official maps of Festigny), planted in 1942, 1962 and 1966, respectively.
Both the Authentic Meunier and the Monodie Vieilles Vignes are outstanding examples of pure meunier in their different and respective ways, making Loriot one of the reference points for meunier in the Marne." Peter Liem.
Expect notes of pastry, spice and red fruits that meld into creamy and smokey notes. This has great intensity and depth of flavour that will last long after you have tasted it. Take a minute, sit back and listen to vinous music being played back to you.
