Supremely generous front end with loads of sweet fruit – chewy, complex and deep. The mid palate delivers a nice layer of brambles, salinity and bitterness. This is a gorgeous little expression of Meunier.
House Profile

Bryan took charge of his family Maison, Marx-Coutelas & Fils in 2017. A few years down the line, he selected 1.5 hectares from their 7 hectare holdings in Venteuil to start his own side project, with a view to creating a completely different style of cuvée. The result is Domaine des Tuileries. Each wine is oak vinified and represent distinct profiles from the estate with a particular focus on the beauty that can be brought by individual barrels. For a first release, they are staggering!

Press Reviews

"Initially, the champagne's character is dominated by pronounced wood influence, obscuring its true identity. However, after approximately two hours, its distinct characteristics begin to surface. The flavor profile is rich, leaning towards tropical fruits, with notes of lemon and wet slate. Remarkably, the acidity is high for a Meunier-based champagne. This champagne exhibits a complexity and power comparable to a grand cru Burgundy, specifically evoking the muscularity of Batard Montrachet. Contrary to initial impressions, the Brut Nature's ripeness is intentional. While additional aging on the lees might seem beneficial, it would compromise the wine's Burgundian character. Although wood influence in champagne is not my thing, in this case, it contributes to a unique profile, the champagne has so much power it just swallows the wood. The champagne is a definite 97-98 points." Donald Pennet – Antonio Galloni, Vinous – May 2023
