2009 Joseph Loriot-Pagel Champagne Special Club - France, Champagne (9/11/2016)

Opened by a friend who brought this back from France since this producer does not export his wines into the US. This Marne Valley producer is located in Festigny and has been making their own Champagne since 1932. Festigny is an area known for Pinot Meunier. This wine is one of only two 100% Pinot Meunier Special Clubs (Mousse being the other). 2009 is the first Special Club vintage bottled by the estate. A very fruity sparkler and unmistanly Pinot Meunier. Loaded with red fruit notes and dough. Full bodied. Would likely benefit by another year or so of aging. 91 points
