$159.00

Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)

A stunning example of bubbly Pinot Noir made in a style that combines Champagne tradition, natural wine-makinig and a Burgundian obsession with detail. From the bottom of the hill of Noyers, where Elm trees used to be planted (that's what "Orme" means). Extremely rare, this is never in stock long.

Benoit is a Meunier specialist, working his family's vineyards on the western edge of the Vallée de la Marne. Starting in 2011, he started bottling wines under his own name from a single parcel called La Rue des Noyers -- 100% Pinot Meunier, farmed biodynamically, and ploughed mostly by horse. In 2015, he started blending some of this PM with Pinot Noir from a nearby plot, and calls it Initiation.
