Here, Pinot Meunier sets the tone. Fruity, juicy with a refreshing mineralality and a slightly tart note. This special edition by Jeaunaux Robin consists of 60% Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay. The soil of the small village of Vallée du Petit Morin contains marl, chalk and the typical millstone limestone, which gives this champagne not only its mineral note, but also its name, because Éclats de Meulière translates simply as “splinters of millstone”. Cyril ages his champagnes in used barrique barrels from around the world, which lend them the typical and individual Jeaunaux Robin characteristics.
An honest champagne with an excellent value for its price. Suitable for both champagne beginners and connoisseurs. The perfect start to the evening: as an aperitif or with lighter dishes.
- In the glass: Bright straw yellow and fine perlage
- Nose: Predominantly yellow fruit, some brioche and top notes of fine citrus aromas.
- On the palate: Juicy, slightly tart with a creamy melt. An honest champagne that combines animating acidity, minerality and drinking flow.
- Sea food; oysters
- Salad; light vegetarian dishes
The Champagne House Jeaunaux-Robin
The winery Jeanaux-Robin was founded in 1950 by the parents of Cyril Jeaunaux. The vineyards are located in the very south of the Côte des Blancs near the village of Talus-Saint-Prix in a very rural area. Away from the glitz and luxury of Champagne. A cool breeze passes by the surrounding hills, often exposing the vines to late frost. Therefore, Pinot Meunier is the grape of choice here, a variety well-prepared for the job.The high percentage of flint guarantees a perfect base for the cultivation of Meunier. A small percentage of the grapes also comes from the Côte des Bar. In addition to stainless steel barrels, the wines are also aged in used barrique, largely avoiding biological acid reduction. Thus, the champagnes acquire a certain uniqueness and honesty, combining acidity, minerality and drinking flow.
