    September 6, 2014 - A very nice treat! 100% Pinot Meunier. Dry with lemon and grapefruit notes. Great for warm weather drinking!

    August 31, 2014 - Another amazing bottle...soaring scents on the nose, a dept on the palate that so few other Champagnes can reach in this price point. This is a wine that's worthy of a case buy year in-year out. Drink or hold. Juillet 2012 Disgorgement (36 months).

    August 25, 2014 - The Eatery: 100% Pinot Meunier; this had a very dry, mineral, yeasty quality but with a faint background note of blackberry or blackcherry along with lemon and grapefruit; lots of strong flavored fruitiness, good power, but I think PM sacrifices complexity. Dryness and fruit countered the briney (yet almost sweet) tiny Kumamoto oysters. Yum.

    August 12, 2014 - Had at Irongate in DC.
    nose was nice with spice, yeast, pears, minerals, and citrus showing through.
    Palate was nice with more pairs, mineralis, yeast, spice showing.
    Finish was above average and there was a solid amount of cut to it.

    (NV Egly-Ouriet Les Vignes de Vrigny) Purchased Summer 2007. This is a 100% Pinot Meunier cuvée. A moderately rich golden hue, with a huge bead - there are bubbles just everywhere. The nose is very aromatic, floral and yet rather meaty, with a biscuity, caramel character at first, and then plenty of candied fruits. The palate starts off fresh, with a full and lively mousse as might be expected from the wine's appearance, and it is full of characterful flavour. It is nicely rounded, soft, fairly well composed, but to be critical the definition isn't really there; there is good flavour, but without the framework of acidity or structure behind it. But it is certainly interesting to drink, but I think the reason Pinot Meunier is employed most commonly as a blending grape - not in the grander cuvées - is evident here.
