Les Murgiers Extra Brut NV Francis Boulard
€ 53,18 (in Vat)
Boulard's recent version of pure Pinot Meunier is the NV Les Murgiers (2014)—officially non-vintaged but based on 2014—whose must was fermented and aged in small oak barrels. Dosed as Extra Brut in December 2017, this bright golden colored Champagne opens with a beautifully pure, fine and elegant bouquet with delicate fruit aromas intertwined with some very precise flinty notes. Round and fruity on the palate but also pure, refined and elegant, this is a remarkably fine Pinot Meunier that already drinks perfectly as an aperitif and surely with cheese. The finish is pure, fresh, salty, very fine and full of character. A very delicate and linear Pinot Meunier of great finesse. Tasted in April 2018.
