2017 Jerome Prevost "La Closerie Les Beguines" Extra Brut Champagne (Champagne, FR)

Varietal: Pinot Meunier

Region: Champagne, France

94 Points, Vinous

"The NV (2015) Extra-Brut Les Beguines is laced with intense floral and mineral notes that at times show distinct Riesling-like inflections. In this release, Beguines is a bit less angular and severe than it often is at this stage in its life. Dried apricot, sage and chamomile are some of the many nuances that open up in this distinctive and highly expressive Champagne from Jérôme Prévost. The 2015 is medium in body, and yet my impression is that there is a good deal of concentration lurking in the background." - Vinous
