Dehours Terre de Meunier Extra Brut Champagne
Jérôme is a fierce proponent of Meunier, which dominates his holdings. And who could refute his belief in the grape’s innate quality when confronted with such a masterly wine as this?
Now with zero dosage, it again demonstrates the house’s remarkable ability to coax finely-textured wines from their grapes, even at this ultra-dry level. It is reminiscent of the single-parcel Meunier wines made by Jérôme’s friend Alexandre Chartogne.
