Notes from Polaner Selections:
Jérôme Prévost’s Champagne La Closerie was founded in 1998, after taking over his grandmother’s two hectares vineyard of Les Beguines, planted with massale selection Meunier in the Montagne de Reims village of Gueux.
Like his fellow “Champagne Renegades”, Prévost focuses on site-specific bottlings primarily dedicated to one grape and one vintage. In order to achieve a textured, terroir-transparent style, he works toward extremely low yields and no chemical additives in the vineyard. The intensity, power and precision of Prévost Champagnes, combined with Jérôme’s thoughtgul, comedic approach, has resulted in a cult following for the man and his wines.
