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.
This wine shows aromas of red apples, orange, and apricot, with biscuit notes from the yeast, and a strong generality. On the palate, the bright acidity and toasty, mineral character leads to fresh notes of red apples and strawberries, and a long, clean finish.
2014 was the first of three July harvests in a row for Mumm Napa. It was a nearly ideal growing season, with a warm summer that allowed for ripe flavors to develop in the grapes. This Pinot Meunier blend was crafted primarily from three vineyards, with locations spread from Carneros to Oak Knoll to Yountville. The blending of the three appellations allowed for a greater complexity of flavors and characters in the finished wine.
Enjoy this wine with a holiday brunch, or serve it alongside a nice pate with crusty bread.
