Jerome Prevost La Closerie Les Beguines LC19

$290.00

The NV Extra Brut Les Béguines LC 19 showed brilliantly once again, bursting with aromas of orange rind, orchard fruit, red berries and peach, mingled with notions of walnuts and marzipan, as well as telltale hints of warm spices and fenugreek. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it’s deep and complete, with huge reserves of fruit and structure, enlivened by a pillowy mousse. Concluding with a long, sapid finish, I continue to think this is one of Prévost’s finest releases of the decade. In style, it’s reminiscent of a somewhat riper version of the 2012. 97 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

 

(LC 19, Disgorged October 2021). Extra Brut. 2019 base with 20% reserve wine from 2018. Prévost’s 2.2-hectare vineyard, Les Béguines, is in Gueux, 10km west of Reims in the north of the region. The soil of Les Béguines is a layer-cake of calcareous (Thanetian) sand, over clay, over more calcareous sand. Inherited from Jérôme’s grandmother, the site was planted in the 1960s with an old, slow-growing, less productive rootstock that descends deeply. Les Béguines is close to 100% Pinot Meunier, although there is now a small amount of 10-year-old Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc that has been planted next to the Pinot Meunier parcel (these vines represent roughly 6% of the blend). The vineyard management is organic, with the soils cultivated and yields kept at balanced levels.
