One of the most sought-after of these is the meunier of Jérôme Prévost. Prévost established his La Closerie estate in 1987,
when he inherited a parcel of vines from his grandmother, who had previously been renting out her vineyard rather than
cultivating it herself. Prévost began to work these vines, selling his grapes to the négoce, but in the 1998 vintage, his friend
Anselme Selosse convinced him to start producing his own wine. As Prévost had no cellars of his own, Selosse offered to
share a corner of his cellars in Avize. Since 2003, all of the production has taken place in Gueux.
Prévost’s two hectares of 40-year old meunier vines are all located within a single vineyard, Les Béguines, located in the
village of Gueux. He does have an additional 20 ares in a parcel directly adjacent to Les Béguines, co-planted with meunier,
chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot blanc, but as these vines are still young, they are currently blended with the meunier.
