Thierry Fournier Les Coteaux de Neuivlle

9.75 stars
8 Dec 2019

I was told by the winemaker that this was with a grape varietal of 100% Pinot Meunier, and majority of the base blend came from 2009 grapes. Not only the unique blend, I was told they only produced 100 bottles of such gem a year! I certainly did not feel the dominating Meunier grape varietal, more like a blend of Chardonnay and Meunier to me. It was super soft and extraordinarily gentle, and definitely the most unique champagne style I’ve ever come across after drinking so many champagnes over the year! The mousse was great, bubbles tasted like a melted Beluga caviar upon touching the palette, not only that, the taste lingered around for a great length, even after a few minutes later I can still have the aftertaste of the dissolved fruits! Just a tinge of lemon peel, but doesn’t affect the overall quality.
