Prévost Fac-Simile Rosé Extra Brut (2014)

Posted by Joe Salamone

There are few, if any, producers in Champagne who have elevated Meunier the way that Prévost has.

Fac-Simile is an astonishing example of what can be done with Pinot Meunier and Rosé Champagne in general.

Of course, this hasn't gone unnoticed. Fac-Simile is one of the rarest and most hunted wines in all of Champagne.

Prévost only has 2.2ha and out of the two wines that he makes, Fac-Simile is by far the most limited. Finding it in quantity can seem impossible at times.

I should underscore that quantities are extremely limited and allocations seem inevitable.

Prévost's village of Gueux has a very specific terroir - the soils are made of sand and calcareous clay and are uniquely studded with tiny fossils that date back 45 million years.

We're big fans of Prévost's 2014s. The Fac-Simile delivers Prévost's unique minerality with blazing energy and textural fascination. There's a thrilling sense of harmony and completeness. The wine has dazzling currents of ripe citrus with floral notes, smoke and a kinetic, tension-filled chalky minerality.

I'm going to wrap this up. There's no point in fanning the fire. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
