2017 Sparkling Pinot Meunier

Although Pinot Meunier is one of three major varietals used in crafting super-premium sparkling wines, it is typically part of an overall blend. While a great complement to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this varietal is delightfully expressive on its own.

Overview

This Pinot stands out with its pale copper hue and tart aromas of red apple, orange zest, rhubarb, and pear. Two years en tirage adds inviting brioche tones and a toasty finish.

Occasion

It’s the perfect way to toast the beginning of Dungeness crab season or an exquisite choice for the Thanksgiving table.
