An early disciple of Selosse, Jerome Prevost broke away from his generous beginnings by starting his Champagne career after taking over his grandmas two hectares of vines, which we now know as Les Beguines. The Prevost name has risen to cult status, and while not as elevated as Selosse, these are masterfully thoughtful wines that deserve the appeal, Raising the first few vintages in Selosses cellar. Prevost works his magic on the Montagne de Reims in the tiny town of Gueux west of Reims. Jerome is one of the Maestros of Pinot Meunier, which is what the Les Beguines vineyard is almost wholly planted too along with small quantities of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay peppered throughout the vineyard, all of which are massale selection. Jerome drew upon his learnings from Selosse and spending much time honing in his vineyard. Les Beguines is fermented in barrel and demi-muid with indigenous yeasts and is disgorged extra brut at about 2.5g/l. These are incredibly expressive champagnes that impress us every time we try them and so rare we never hesitate when given a chance. The Beguines is one of the purest and expressive Champagnes in any given year, and here is the opportunity to bring some home.
