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, in no small part because of the vintages of Salon Champagne and the single-vineyard Clos du Mesnil, owned, of course, by Krug. 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.
100% Chardonnay from our Grand cru terroir. Dosage of about 6 grams. The vintages are a reflection of our fabulous terroir. They always have at least 8 years of ageing in the cellar when we offer them. The 2006 vintage is iodized and saline. The nose evokes honey and white peaches, while the mouth evokes it, a chalky minerality. Enjoy as an aperitif for the beautiful moments of life or with fish dishes (Bar, St Pierre) with cream.
