100% Pinot Meunier from 45 year old vines and all from the 2013 vintage. 30 months on lees and a short maceration provide tannins and lovely structure balanced by bright red fruits.
Charcuterie, prawn risotto and semi-hard goats cheese would pair nicely.
Varietal / Blend: Pinot Meunier

Founded in 1964 by Michel and Marie-Claude Jeaunaux, this property is now run by their son Clémence. Situated in the village of Talus Saint Prix, Champagne Jeaunaux-Robin now own five hectares planted to around 74% pinot meunier, 23% pinot noir and 3% chardonnay.
Jeaunaux-Robin is run on sustainable principles – no chemical fertilisers or insecticides are used. Since 2002 they have vinified some of their best cuvées in oak barrels made from oak originating in the Champagne region.
