The Cult of Prévost - Revisited:
Prévost Les Beguines Extra Brut NV (2017 Base)

Jérôme Prévost is one of the greatest growers in all of Champagne.

For many, this will sound trite. Prévost has a cult following, and the wines quickly disappear from the market. 

Showstopping Meunier
2013 Laherte Frères Les Vignes d'Autrefois Extra Brut

At a recent tasting of over thirty wines, Laherte's 2013 Autrefois stole the show. It was sort of amazing. Among Cru Barolos and 1er Cru Burgundies, it was a Pinot Meunier Champagne that costs $59.95 in 4-packs that the entire staff was talking about.

At this point, there's little left to be said about Prevost. At age 21, Prevost inherited his grandmother's 2.2 hectares of Meunier vines in an obscure corner of Champagne. In seemingly no time, Prevost gained a cult following and finding his wine became an adventure.

Prévost Fac-Simile Rosé Extra Brut (2014)

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.

"What a gorgeous wine this is"
Prévost Beguines Extra Brut (2013)

Jérôme Prévost has 2.2ha and an enormous following. They are some of the most compelling and singular Champagnes out there. When you taste Prévost, an immediate obsession seems to develop.
