Absolutely stunning first release of Pinot Meunier-based Champagne. It goes back to Olivier Collard's heritage, as his late grandfather, Rene Collard, whose Champagnes are highly collectable, was famous for making beautiful age-worthy Pinot Meunier.
It's 65% from 2013 and 2014 and the balance from 2015 ( a top vintage) and all fermented in large foudres and aged on the fine lees in foudres for 12-15 months. 12.5% alc. Very low dosage.
FROM THE PRESS
“100% Pinot Meunier for this vintage with a beautiful golden yellow color. The wine reveals itself with greediness on the palate, and the balance between the notes of milk caramel and the mineral structure can only be appreciated thanks to a low dosage. Ideal with a chicken tagine with quince and almonds.”Gault & Millau
