Pinot Meunier

Taking its name from the French word for miller (meunier), the leaves of this black grape have white undersides as though they have been dusted with flour. It is one of the three grape varieties permitted in the production of Champagne, the other two varieties being Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Pinot Meunier adds an easy-going fruitiness and sometimes a smoky character to a blend. Pinot Meunier is also grown successfully in the Loire Valley as well as in Germany and Australia. Whether blended in Champagne or as a single varietal it works well with truffled Brie or oysters.

    Britain's best value bubbles? This English sparkling wine is seriously good value, especially since it's the vintage cuvée. Hampshire vies with Champagne here in very stately style. Outstanding fizz that, at this price, doesn't demand a special occasion to open it; how about this Friday? Read More.

    Rude Wines have loads of lovely stuff - the trouble is the Cottonworth Sparkling Rose from Hampshire is so delicious they have to prise the bottle from my hands to force me to try other stuff!Oz Clarke, The Three Wine Men

    Wow - very fruity! Incredible strawberry and cherry fruit, the like of which I’ve never tasted - still less in an English wine! This is thanks to the use of Pinot Précoce, apparently. So bright and ripe. Hard to say if it’s typically English, but I do love its boldness. 17/20 Richard Hemming MW, Read More.
