2008 Pierre Moncuit Cuvée Millésime Grand Cru Extra Brut Mesnil Blanc de Blancs

A 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne.

Tasting Notes

This 2008 Vintage reveals a very fine and round nose, with aromas of exotic fruits (pineapple, mango) and very ripe yellow fruits, such as apricot, with a very fresh finish.

Great intensity in the mouth. Undoubtedly very beautiful and focused.

History

The Moncuit family has been making superb champagne in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, for more than 100 years. Pierre Moncuit had recognised the intrinsic quality of his terroir and, together with his wife Odile, strove to make the best possible champagnes from his grapes. Nicole Moncuit and her brother Yves, along with her daughter Valérie, are now in charge of the Domaine and make sublimely complex, delicate wines from 20 hectares of Grand Cru vineyards.

The vintage Cuvée Millésimée Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is an outstanding wine, truly representative of the perfect vintage conditions and expressing the full potential of the terroir and the grapes. The Vintage wines are always aged for between 5-10 years.
