- A blend of both Pinot noir and Meunier from this small family estate

- An elegant style of Blanc de noirs filled with red fruits and a little spice

- Pair with smoked duck breast, fig and perhaps a moroccan cous cous

This is the kind of champagne we like with food. Plenty of freshness and elegance as it was all harvested in excellent years (2013 plus a little 2012 reserve wine) and plenty of bright savoury fruit and a little of that Montagne de reims spice we sometimes see in the fruit. 

A great way to explore the black grapes as a blend from an excellent and well-respected producer.

Technical details

45% Pinot noir 55% Meunier with 86% coming from the 2013 harvest and just 14% from 2012. Disgorged May 2020 with about 6.5 g/L dosage.

Established in 1808 in Chamery which is a Premier Cru in the main region of Montagne de Reims. Currently this 4-hectare estate is run by the 5th Generation Benoist and Isabelle Perseval. It was back in 1990 when they identified the 6 separate ‘Lieu-Dit’ or parcels that they use for blending across the range and keeping some for individual expressions. They use oak barrels for all or part of their vinifications and they are set in maintaining their heritage with the ‘older and lesser known varieties of Arbanne, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.
