Connigis

What to expect


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 malo-lactic 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.

Food Suggestion 

Perhaps the smallest the vineyard in the region, but such a wonderful producer. This minuscule single plot of pinot meunier is situated on a challenging 45 degree slope with a fortunate south facing aspect. The owners Julien and Stephanie produce a tiny 4 barrels of delightful biodynamic, 100% pinot meunier wine as well as a few bottles of Ratafia. We are incredibly privileged to have a small allocation of this rare stock. 

Food Suggestion 


We would pair this with a warm mushroom tart with light goats cheese whilst soaking in the sun.
