While the northernmost villages of Champagne’s Côte de Blancs – Le Mesnil, Oger, Cramant, and Avize ¬– are home to stark white chalk soils that are among the planet’s most acclaimed Chardonnay terroirs, the slopes around Talus-Saint-Prix in the south tell a different story.
Here, Cyril and Clémence Jeaunaux-Robin use biodynamic farming methods to tend 5ha of 40-year-old Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir vines as an extension of their garden. The combination of flint-rich, silex soils (rarely found in Champagne) and oak vinification lends a silky texture and smoky minerality to their deliciously opulent wines.
As Pinot Meunier and the region’s lesser-known villages are finally getting their share of the spotlight, fans of grower Champagne should make a beeline for Jeaunaux-Robin’s well-priced bottles.
Unusually, this is made from 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir. Yellow flowers, lemon sherbet, and tingling acids.
