Pinot Meunier

Pinot Meunier

Pinot Meunier is primarily used as an important part of the blend in top quality sparkling wines and Champagnes. It takes its name for the dusting of white hairs on the underside of its leaves that looks like flour (meunier is a French word for miller). Budding later but ripening earlier than Pinot Noir it is more productive and less susceptible to winter frosts.    

Pinot Meunier has more acidity and contributes a fruity freshness to most sparkling wine blends.  In Champagne it is grown with success in the Marne Valley.  Where it is planted in the rest of the world, it is usually to imitate the Champagne model so plantings can be found in Australia (Tasmania), New Zealand and California.

  6. Beaumont des Crayères
    Brut - Fleur de Meunier Champagne
    0,75l White
    €41.55 €34.34
    We made a good discovery when we tasted this special cuvée and we loved the purity, finesse and definition of this Champagne made from 100% Pinot Meunier grapes. Produced from the 2008 vintage with non sugar added in the dosage, the Champagne has a golden yellow colour with very fine bubbles. The nose is very expressive with aromas of plum, peach and grapes, lifted with notes of mint, cardamon, butter and silex. On the palate it is balanced with a slightly spicy, long finish. Delicious served with crayfish, caviar, salmon tartare or other gourmet dishes.
  7. Bollinger
    Brut Champagne
    0,75l White
    €50.55 €41.78
    Bollinger's flagship cuvee is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. Aged in bottle on its fine lees for a minimum of three years prior to disgorgement, this Champagne has a magnificent aromatic intensity of brioche, pears and apple puree. It is a pure expression of the house style with its creamy, velvetly texture, dry and fairly austere finish and fine complexity and richness. A real classic to be drunk five years after purchase.
