VALLÉE DE LA MARNE
The Vallée de la Marne is considered the best area to grow Pinot Meunier, although Pinot Noir is increasingly planted here. This region counts only two Grands Crus villages, Aÿ and Tours sur Marne.
The soil in the valley is different from the other regions; here we see more clay and sand rather than chalk. Wines from the valley have a generous fruit character and display more voluptuous flavours rather than mineral.
The cool influence of the river makes Pinot Meunier better suited to the area (less sensitive to frost).
Marl, clay and sand dominates which is better suited for growing Pinot Meunier.
Typically, vineyards left of the river bank are north-facing whilst the right bank is south facing.
