Jérôme Prévost is a micro grower producer based in the picture- perfect village of Gueux, on the edge of the Mountain de Reims or what the locals call la Petite Mountain. Here, in the north west of Champagne, he grows a tiny quantity of remarkable, age worthy Pinot Meunier from a single, two hectare plot of forty year old vines. His wines have garnered a cult following across the globe and are sold strictly on allocation.

The wines of Jérôme Prévost are as complex and as intriguing as the man himself. So how to sum them up in a few words? Tasting notes are useless as the wines shift, turn and evolve. Even when you open bottles of the same vintage (at different points in time) the wines are often very different. What we can say in general terms is that they are dry, vinous, aromatic, floral, spicy wines with huge energy, drive and longevity. They are textured yet very tightly wound. They are wildly complex, never boring, and they are great with food. They also benefit enormously from time (1-5 years) in the cellar.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The NV Extra Brut Les Béguines LC15 is also showing very well, unwinding to reveal notes of mirabelle plums, yellow orchard fruit and white flowers. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, deep and structured, with an abundance of chalky dry extract and impressive tension for the vintage. I suspect that this may prove fascinating with extended bottle age.
