Champagne Miniere F & R, Influence NV
Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay
Brothers Frédéric and Rodolphe Minière produce a bold and complex wine which sees some barrel fermentation. The wine reveals citrus aromas and chocolate notes, and a little hint of sweet oak. Underlined by a long finish.
Frédéric worked for a time with legend Anselme Selosse and everything is barrel-fermented in various sizes of oak and held some 8 months on lees before bottling. Over half their vines are 40-70 years old, giving lower yield but more intense juice.
Miniere F & R ’s barrel-fermented champagnes are increasingly in connoisseur’s sights. Brothers Frédéric and Rodolphe Minière (hence F & R) only began to sell their champagnes in 2014 and made their own wine from only 3ha of their 8ha estate in Hermonville, north of Reims. The rest of the grapes were sold off but they are expanding each year from their current 25,000 bottles per annum. In such a short time they have received considerable admiration for their sleek and precise wines.
