Jerome Prevost La Closerie "&" Extra Brut, NV, 750ML

SKU: 580284
Region: Champagne
Variety: Pinot Meunier
Rating: Not Rated

Jerome Prevost farms just over 2ha of Pinot Meunier, mostly old vines, in Montagne de Reims, in a small village called Gueux. The soils here are a mix of chalk and calcareous sand. Jerome started making his Champagne in Alselme Selosse cellar in 1998, and in 2003 he moved to his own cellar. Usually one of the last ones to pick, the Champagne from Prevost are barrel fermented and not topped up, allowing a light veil of yeast to form on top of the wine and develop a "aged" character to his wines. Second fermentation in bottle is made with very little dosage.

La Closerie "&" Extra Brut (LC20)

100% Pinot Meunier

A new bottle from Prévost, the NV Extra Brut & (LC20) is a blend of 20% Les Béguines with the balance deriving from other sites in Gueux that share the same sandy soils.

It's based on the 2020 vintage, with some 20% reserve wines from 2019.

Produced from purchased grapes, Prévost farms some of the sites and determines the date of harvest and sorting. Dosage 3gr/l
