- Tiny production of just 1,000 bottles of Biodynamic champagne per year
- True Artisanal champagne made by a husband and wife duo
- Pair with warm mushroom tart with light goats cheese whilst soaking in the sun.
An amazingly rare cuvee from a single parcel in a small village called Connigis which based on very steep slopes. Pinot meunier plays the leading role here and is doing an excellent job at that. This is farmed biodynamically, fermented in oak with minimal filtration and has no malolactic fermentation.
Expect rich layers of nougat, toasted spice, yellow plum fruit and a warmth. Bold mouthfeel, textured and layered with some of that warm spice coming through all the way to the finish. There is a creamy quality which is unusual for non-malo or no dosage.
Meunier strikes again. There is a tiny 4 barrels of this full bodied biodynamic gem produced each year with the number of every bottle out of 350 hand written on the back. Emperor is fortunate to have a small allocation of this minuscule production. This is a great gift for a champagne connoisseur.
