- Sustainable and organic approach to the vineyard and winemaking
- Ratafia is a bit like the 'Port' of Champagne, using a natural grape spirits called 'Marc de Champagne' that is added to the final pressings of champagne production. This is a secret family recipe from 1947 by Edmond Moussé.
- The house recommends a good Maroilles cheese topped with red fruits and fresh local bread
This atypical Ratafia is elaborated with passion, in keeping with a secret family recipe from 1947 by Edmond Moussé, 2nd generation winemaker of the house.
The recipe was only passed down to his son, Jean-Marc, and his Grandson, Cédric. It belongs to the DNA of the house and provides a new opportunity to discover the Meunier. This 100% Meunier Ratafia is produced with their homemade Marc de Champagne, a liqueur made of Meunier wine only.
The flavour profile has rich and exotic notes of ripe black fig and toffee apple. The beauty of this wine is the finish which is clean and persistent. Pair this with your cheese board or fruit pies.
