In Prevost's Gueux, you find unique soils. Champagne's famous chalk soils are buried deep under a mix of sand and calcareous clay, laden with sea fossils. Something really special happens to Meunier here. Prevost endows Meunier with a regal, mineral core. The power, the earthiness of Meunier is turned into something rigorously detailed, fine and saline. The minerality on the 2012 is super-deep, cut and clear.
