Winestyr Review

Van der Camp Vineyard sports, perhaps, the oldest Pinot Noir vines in California so it only makes sense that in the early 1990s Meunier would make its way there. You haven't had Meunier before? Well, it's one of the three primary grapes used in Champagne production. This example saw 12 months in 10% new oak, lending a beautiful layer of spice behind that tart, crunchy fruit up front.

What We Love

  • Van der Camp Vineyard
  • Unique grape variety

Few producers bring out Meunier's beauty like Poe Wines!

Experience

Samantha Sheehan founded POE in 2009 after being inspired by the wines she tasted in Burgundy and Champagne. The goal is not to replicate Burgundy, but rather create alluring, vineyard specific, age-worthy wines revealing the beautiful terroir of California. There is minimal intervention, judicious use of sulfur, and never any additives. POE produces traditional Champagne method sparkling wines, rosé, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and a nouveau from Pinot Noir. Each wine is made in very limited quantities, and sold directly from the winery and to high-end restaurants around the country.
