Champagne Marie Copinet - Rupture Meunier 2018 (Blanc de Noirs)
100% Pinot Meunier from the Valée de la Marne, vinified without any added sulphites at any stage. The result is a phenomenally balanced and poised wine, expressing the gamut of orchard fruits from fresh green apples to ripe pears and stewed quince. Clear, defined fruit profile, with a soft-textured elegance, and gorgeously fine mousse.
Made by Marie-Laure Copinet, who since 2015 has steered her family estate in a bold new direction. Her first step was to regenerate the soils by halting the use of synthetic products in the vineyards, before focusing the winemaking on a style centred around single vintage, single variety, and single vineyard Champagnes. Working across three sub-zones of Champagne, the result is a diverse range of wines which express a rare elegance and purity and an exceptional blend of pleasure and precision.
