Vinous, 90 Points 

"The 2019 Brut Nature Blanc de Noirs L'Arbre, from a parcel in Pouillon, is seriously impressive. Bright, focused and super-polished, with tons of aromatic presence, L'Arbre shows a refined, elegant side of Meunier that stands apart from the typically bigger style found in most mono-varietal bottlings. There's tons of energy and vibrancy. The 2019 feels a bit severe, but some of that may be attributable to its recent disgorgement. Naturally the vintages are different, but the 2018 version is quite a bit more open.

Winemaker Notes: 

"L’Arbre is about pride of place for Vincent Cuillier. It is the family’s most historic parcel and where he began his explorations in natural viticulture and vitiforestry. The name “L’Arbre” (Tree) is a nod to his extensive work planting trees and increasing biodiversity. This 100% Meunier is exclusively made as a zero-dosage vintage Champagne. The depth and complexity of the wine speaks to Cuillier’s dedication and deft hand in the vines and cellar. 

As befitting a fine 100% Pinot Meunier wine from this region, this shows plump forward berry fruit notes kept in line by crisp acidity and fine complex mineral based lines.
Indigenous yeast fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tank, followed by a full year of tank aging. This vintage cuvée spends the requisite 36 months sur lattes and sees no fining or filtration before being disgorged by hand with zero dosage." 

Alcohol: 12%
