Sourced from 20 parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger, the 2012 Extra Brut Blanc de Blanc Grand Cru is a fine choice for readers who enjoy Champagnes with a bit of bottle age. Still quite fresh and vibrant, the 2012 gives off tons of energy. If anything, I find it a bit reserved for the year. That won't be an issue for readers who appreciate restraint over power. Lemon confit, marzipan, tangerine oil, mint and white pepper linger. This is one of the more taut 2012s I have come across. Dosage is 3.5 grams per liter. Disgorged February 2023. 

Importer Notes

In 1889 Pierre Moncuit and his wife, Odile Moncuit-Delos, established the house of Champagne Pierre Moncuit. Since 1977, Nicole Moncuit has managed the vineyards and made the wine, while her brother Yves has managed the sales. More recently, Nicole’s daughter Valérie has been actively assisting in the cellar. Mesnil lies smack in the middle of the Côte des Blancs and is its most celebrated village. The wines of Mesnil are known above all for steely elegance and minerality, and those from chez Pierre Moncuit—which has some of the oldest vines along the entire Côte—superbly reflect these qualities.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay
