Jeaunaux-Robin MV 'Les Dessous de la Cabane' Rosé Brut, Champagne, France

Truly a found treasure, this tiny family domain was founded in 1964 by Michel and Marie-Claude Jeaunaux, now run by husband and wife Cyril & Clémence Jeaunaux-Robin. The estate is only 5.7 hectares (the family’s backyard) in the village of Talus-Saint-Prix in La Vallée du Petit Morin. Vines are approximately 40 years of age (considered ancient by Champagne standards) on flint-rich, silex soil. The farming is meticulous, currently undergoing organic certification and practicing biodynamic viticulture.

Farming: Biodynamic

Varieties: 60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir & 10% Chardonnay

Terroir: Located south-west of the Côte des Blancs, La Vallée du Petit Morin is named for the Le Petit Morin river - a tributary of the Marne - that runs through the region. The village of Talus-Saint-Prix is composed of 39 hectares of vineyards planted on south-facing slopes some distance away from the riverbed. It is known for remarkable minerality, attributed to the characteristic flint in the soils. Also of note, the village is especially susceptible to frost, favoring Pinot Meunier vines which have proven more resilient and able to dodge the spring hazards. “The underside of the hut” is a plot where the Pinot Meunier is harvested for the red wine that gives this cuvée its color. Vines are an average age of 45 years on calcareous clay soils.

Vinification: Traditional wild yeast fermentation in stainless steel followed by lees aging in stainless and 20% barrel with bâtonnage for six months. Secondary fermentation and further aging on the lees for 30 months.

Tasting Notes: Dried red flowers, fresh pomegranate and notes of smoked blood orange, this medium bodied Champagne is endlessly complex and uber delicious. A unique showstopper at a fabulous price!
