Despite Pinot Meunier accounting for a third of all planting in the Champagne region, it is the most overlooked and under appreciated of the big-three grape varieties. Part of Meunier's image problem lies in the fact that it is little planted beyond Champagne and, as such, little known by the wider wine drinking world.
There are, however, a new wave of growers championing this superb varietal and their results are nothing short of sensational.
If you're yet to try pure, 100% Meunier Champagne, there is no better place to start than with this great value 3 pack from three of the region's Meunier maestros.
One of our most popular pure Meuniers, this is a supremely toasty experience with a palate full of white fruits and a pleasant, rich stewed fruit note. There’s a big mouth feel and a persistent finish and wonderful freshness throughout.
Famille Delouvin Meunier Perpetuel
Created from a solera system dating back to 1992, this wine comes from a young and exciting producer based in Vandieres. Ripe, rich and mature on the front end, with loads of nutty notes and this bright primary fruit note followed by a gorgeous salty finish.
William Saintot Meunier de mes Grand-Peres
A wine that pays homage to vigneron, Morgann Saintot’s grandparents, this small batch Meunier is beautifully textured, fruity and saline with that perfect lift of sweet oak on the finish.
