Jérôme Prévost is the student of Anselme Selosse, producer of Avize and absolute reference point of that group of vignerons who have managed to give a new, natural and modern imprint in the elaboration of champagnes. Jérôme Prévost began to cultivate the family vineyard in the 80s and for ten years confers the grapes to the négociants. Following the meeting with Selosse and thanks to his valuable advice, Jérôme Prévost begins to vinify his own grapes. The unique vineyard of about 2 hectares and 2 ares is located in the village of Gueux, to the north in the Montagne de Reims and is based on sandy calcareous soil. A great work is recognized in Prévost: it has succeeded in enhancing the less noble vine of the three champagne classics. Jérôme Prévost, in fact, makes the pinot meunier in purity and has succeeded over time and as a true avant-gardeist to create a product of unprecedented class, giving luster and immense elegance to a vine with notoriously more rustic and less refined characteristics. Prévost develops two labels, both from pinot meunier in single parity and not dosed: the Blanc de Noirs La Closerie Les Béguines and the Rosé La Closerie Fac-Simile.
'La Closerie Les Beguines' is the first label of Jérôme Prévost. It comes from the only family vineyard, located in the Mountain of Reims. This cuvée is vinified and aged completely in wood. Stop on the lees for 24 months, zero dosage. Champagne of immense aristocratic fabric and aromatic depth.
