The 50% of Pinot Meunier in the blend gives this wine a roundness that contrasts with the crisp and very dry character. Together, they produce a wine that is fresh, full in the mouth with a creamy mousse and a smooth, ripe aftertaste. This bottling should be given a few months aging after purchase.
