A Brut Nature with incredible richness
When it comes to sparkling wines at Cépage, we are partial to two particular styles. At least, we really see the benefit of winemakers who utilise a high proportion of the Pinot Meunier grape, and not a lot of sugar (a low dosage).
There are lots of similarities between Burgundy and Champagne, minus the obvious fact that one is famed for its sparkling, the other is not. The main similarity is the use of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and how the wines are aged prior to release, in oak. Minière emphasise this more 'Burgundian' style in their wine making which allows for an incredibly complex and rather unique style of sparkling wine to be presented. Toasty, oaky and rich despite a low dosage, highly floral from a higher than average proportion of Meunier makes this champers a real Cépage favourite.
