60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir & 10% Chardonnay. 20% barrel fermented in large oak foudre, 30 months on the lees. Eclats de Meulière means “Burst of millstone” recalling the nature of soils. The wine starts with a juicy, fruity attack, a medium/full mid-palate and an exceptionally long, mineral finish.
“Disgorged in January 2018, the NV Extra Brut Éclats de Meulière opens in the glass with a gently reductive nose of smoky orchard fruit, wheat toast and iodine. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, with a ripe core of fruit underpinned by a tangy spine of acidity, concluding with a saline, mouthwatering finish. 90 Points.” – William Kelley, Wine Advocate #242, April, 2019
