The Cult Meunier:
Prévost Les Beguines Extra Brut (2018)

Posted by Joe Salamone

There are no Champagnes that we want to drink more than Prévost's.

It's clear that we're not alone. Every time we offer Prévost, there's a rush of orders followed by a steady stream of people coming back for more.

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

We've told Prévost's story many times, but it's extraordinary enough to repeat once more.  The tale begins with a 21-year-old who inherited his grandmother's 2.2 hectares of Meunier (the ugly stepchild of Champagne grapes) in an obscure corner in the northwest of Montagne de Reims.

For over 10 years he simply sold off the grapes. In 1998, his friend Anselme Selosse convinced him to start making his own wines. Things took off quickly from there. By 2006, his wines had captured the world's attention. Finding them today, in any quantity, has become incredibly difficult.

Prévost's vines are in Gueux. Here you'll find unique soils. Champagne's famous chalky soils are buried deep underneath a mix of sand and calcareous clay, laden with sea fossils. Judging from Prévost's wines, something really special happens to Meunier here.

There's an incredible amount of excitement surrounding the 2018 vintage in Champagne. The neat summary is that it's a riper and very clear vintage where Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier thrived. We're expecting the 2018 Prévost to be an especially stunning vintage for the wine. 

As always with Prévost, our parcel is modest. I encourage you to place your orders early.
