Grape: Pinot Meunier 

 

A blanc des noirs from a single parcel called "Pierre de Bellevue", planted in 1947 in Oeuilly by the Tarlants' paternal grandfather Georges on Sparnacian clay-limestone soils (a type specific to the Marne Valley).

The fruit was hand-harvested and gently pressed; the juice was fermented with natural yeasts in Burgundy barrels.

The wine was aged in barrel with no malolactic fermentation before bottling in May 2005.

The bottles were aged sur lattes and disgorged in March 2018 with no dosage.

 

Wine Advocate: 92+/100
