Brilliant gold color with coppery reflections, distinctive sign of black grape varieties. In the glass, a fine effervescence nourishes a delicate and persistent foam cord.
A fruity and jovial nose with floral aromas and delicate red fruits. The palate is luscious, tonic and salivating. Endowed with an energetic sap, the Meunier is tonic and dense. A final on the palate on the beautiful bitters, zest of grapefruit full of sun.
Special Story about the name "Cul du Singe" (literally "Monkey's butt"):
"In the 70's, my Grandfather Roland and my Father François wanted to buy new lands to develop, but there was nothing available in Chouilly. They found new plots to buy in the Marne Valley, in the village of Verneuil, "Le cul du singe" was one of them.
One day, while they were working in this plot to clear it, an old man from the village came to watch them, Roland and François asked him why this parcel had this name.
The old man remained silent for a long time, turned his beret on his head several times and said to them: Have you ever seen anything grow on a monkey’s ass? and left without saying more.
For him, Roland and François were two strangers completely mad who wanted to grow a vineyard on this wild land!" - Carole CHAMPION
