Tasting Notes


Francis Orban vineyard lies in the heart of the Marne Valley, the birthplace of Champagne, 15km from Epernay, Champagne’s capital city.
This Estate is atypical from several points of view: enjoying ideal exposure and sunshine, exceptional clay-limestone soil and a perfect microclimate to grow Pinot Meunier.
Spurred on by the desire to satisfy every Champagne lover, you will find in the Francis Orban Champagne range a natural elegance and an inherited, authentic and genuine skill specific to the Pinot Meunier and Francis Orban’s terroir.

Eye: dark golden colour is characteristic of its ageing in oak barrels. The fine, elegant effervescence gives a delicate stream of bubbles
Nose: few subtle, slightly spicy woody notes, settling into the mature Pinot Meunier with its notes of mild tobacco, dried fruits and apricot
Mouth: crispy, gourmet mouth with a wonderful final tension. It reveals certain stone fruits such as Mirabelle plums and lightly roasted nuts
