91 Stephan Reinhardt – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“100% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru villages of Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger, Robert Moncuit’s NV Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs displays bright white fruit and floral aromas on the pure and chalky, very elegant nose. The delicate mousse gives way to a very mineral and persistent taste on the palate. This medium to full-bodied Brut is full of character and complexity; it is lovely, pure, and shows lots of finesse and a very good length. A dosage of six grams per liter and is an excellent Brut from chalky soils.”

Product Description:

“Champagne Robert Moncuit in Mesnil sur Oger (Côte des Blancs; the domaine exists since 1889) cultivates 25 plots adding up to eight hectares of Chardonnay, mostly 50+ year old vines on chalky soils. Moncuit works the soil but is not an organic wine producer. The vins clairs were fermented in stainless steel and kept on the lees for ten months, so the bottling is usually in July. Only the Reserve is partly fermented in oak (20%). The domaine has existed since 1889. Moncuits aims for fresh Champagnes that are not dominated by the fruit, but the chalky terroir of Mesnil. Indeed the wines have a great purity and finesse, but a good complexity too.” – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
