K&L Notes

This Champagne is composed of 70% Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir and is aged three and a half years on the lees. The exotic, pure Meunier fruit in this Champagne marries with the creamy, delicately toasty aromas and flavors. The wine has no trace of sherry-like oxidation or bruised apple malic character that Meunier-based Champagnes sometimes have. On the contrary, this is very clean and bright given the level of concentration and character in the wine. At the price, there's no reason for any Champagne fan not to try it...unless you only drink zero dosage Blanc de Blancs!

Emblematis is a supple yet subdued Champagne. It’s made with 70% Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir, and with 60% blocked malolactic fermentation the wine takes on a very creamy texture while retaining a lot of fresh fruit. Notes of pear, light baguette, berries, and yellow apple. The mouthfeel is so rounded and full, and there’s an elegantly earthy character that comes back to the soft fruits for the finish.

I would have no idea that this bottle was mostly Meunier if I wasn't told, even after tasting it a second time; with so many fun, fruit-forward notes it's hard to pick out the subtle umami, mushroom give away. A deep, rich bottle of wine, with a good zip on the finish, this is tee-d up for a delicious food pairing.

With a Diploma of Enology, Jermone Trudon could make pretty good money working wherever he wants. He chose to start his own project and aren't we lucky for it. The 70% Pinot Meunier is on full display here with rich berry notes shining, though there is a slight creamy chanterelle mushroom quality here also. Jerome also chooses to block 60% of malolacic fermentation, preserving freshness and bright citrus flavors. The perfect balance of fruity and savory, this would make the ultimate food Champagne.

What an awesome addition to our Meunier lineup! While the grape is often coveted for darker fruit and an almost rustic, unctuous quality, Jerome Trudon makes a cleaner style of Meunier, deeply elegant and supremely drinkable, with complexity throughout and a clean, laser sharp finish.

Our most exciting new value in Champagne is here, the Emblematis from Jerome Trudon. With more than three years of ageing on the lees, this all estate blend of 70% Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir should be more expensive... Luckily we buy direct and the dollar is strong! This wine has 50% reserves from older vintages and features subtle baguette toast and exotic yet elegant fruit on the nose and in the mouth. Since Jerome does not use malolactic, this wine has great focus and a finish that I would only expect from a wine costing 50% more!
Top Value!

Emblematis, which can translate as "symbolic", to Trudon expresses the house's "historical style" while featuring 70% Meunier that thrives from the Festigny soils. 60% of the wine is from the difficult yet concentrated vintage of 2012 while the rest of the wine is a reserve blend. The wine is driven with mouthwatering acidity mixed with a finesse of floral undertones and is held on the back palate with chalky minerality. An award winning champagne at an award winning price!

We visited nearly 40 producers during our trip to Champagne, and weeks later, Trudon remains a standout in my memory. The Emblamatis is a Blanc de Noirs made from 80% Meunier, 20% Pinot Noir and aged at least 36 months on the lees. It has great precision, with expressive fruit flavors of apples, peaches and flowers with a subtle, integrated toast. Overall, it’s very well put-together, with no bitterness or coarseness at all, great acidty and a very long, pleasant finish. Have this with a cheese or dried sausage plate. ​

During our recent Champagne tasting, we were discussing the Pinot Meunier grape - its unique personality, versatility, ability to make a delicious wine on its own and even its contribution of savory richness to the Krug house style. Well, we have a new Meunier based Champagne (70% PM, 30% PN) from Trudon, and it is delicious - a fantastic example of the power and tastiness of this grape variety. Juicy, subtly spicy and refreshing, Trudon Emblematis reminds me of Michel Loriot Brut Reserve, whose bottles I have nearly depleted in my cellar over the past couple years. I will surely be replacing them with Trudon. Delicious, and affordable, Champagne!
