The NV Brut Rosé is pure Pinot Meunier tasted here is based on the 2014 and 2013 vintages, and my sample was disgorged in August 2017. It's a blended rosé with a warm salmon color, indicating a pure yet intense and aromatic bouquet of red fruits. Very pure and elegant on the palate, this is a vital and energetic Pinot Meunier with great grip, tension and kiwi flavors. Very fresh, vital and stimulating, it needs time to age. Tasted April 2018.
The Brut Rosé Pur Meunier is a rosé done with a blend of mostly Meunier vinified in white, off the skins, with the addition of still red Meunier for color and texture. Bright, red-tone fruit, tobacco and dried flowers give the wine striking aromatic depth to play off and contrast the fruit. The 6 grams of dosage feels just a touch sweet for this wine. Otherwise, the Pur Meunier is very nicely done. The current release is a blend of equal parts 2014 and 2013. Disgorged: February 2017. Dosage is 6 grams per liter.
Christophe Mignon’s Brut Rosé is comprised entirely of pinot meunier, from vines that are closing in on their fortieth birthday. The current release is a fifty-fifty blend of 2010 and 2009 vintage juice and was disgorged in June of 2012. It is a lovely wine, with a bright salmon color and offering up a complex and elegant bouquet of cherries, tangerine, rye bread, lovely soil tones, a bit of smokiness and dried rose petals. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and very refined, with pinpoint bubbles, a lovely core, fine focus and grip and a very long, complex and zesty finish. Fine juice. 2014-2020+.
