Tradition Extra Brut

This entry-level stunner features a meunier-dominant blend to highlight the power and finesse of the domaine’s leading grape, the underappreciated pinot meunier. This cuvée is the platonic ideal of growers’ champagne – one that seamlessly weaves the minerality in the soils with the delicate aromas of grapes from a blend of 30 parcels within Vrigny. A true reflection of the Vrigny terroir.
