I'm not a fan of pinot gris, and I've never had a pinot meunier that I'm aware of. I've had lesser pinot blancs, as chukon99 also has, but I have a Domaine Ostertag pinot blanc that will tell me what a top-flight producer can do with it. But I've loved many pinot noirs, so that wins my vote in a landslide.

I've also had a 100% Pinot Meunier Champagne. Delicious.
Me too and me too.
And someone is making a still PM, although I can't recall who at this moment.

You can find several (still) Meuniers in the Loire. While I've only had a half-dozen or so, it always reminds me of Gamay.
I have two accounts- this 'anonymous' username for commenting, as well as a 'purchasing' account which is my real name. Apologies for the white box on the left.
Also, in the interest of full disclosure- I'm ITB, selling wine for a living. None of my wines have ever been featured on Woot though, so don't fear the shilling.
