I just tasted this today at our staff tasting and it was completely unexpected. Not that we were tasting it but, that it did not taste at all like Pinot Meunier! The nose is creamy with pear fruit, white flowers and candied almonds. On the palate, at firs,t I thought of it as being "light" but, it fleshed out mid-palate, so it is really more medium bodied. Long, long finish with very solid minerality. We have had other Meunier-centric wineries produce lower dosage versions of this varietal but, the Gilbert is definitely the most affordable. The other wineries were also more traditional in their approach and this house is not. Thoroughly enjoyable!
