Champagne Robert Moncuit Current Releases
Brut Blanc de Blancs NV
Robert Moncuit's NV Blanc de Blancs is sourced from parcels of Chardonnay located in the villages of Mesnil and Oger. It is around 80% of its base vintage and 20% reserve wine from the preceding vintage.
Winemaker, Pierre Amillet's vinification style is consistent across all of his wines. He uses a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel in order to preserve the minerality and focus that Chardonnay grown in chalk can have. Around 80% of this release’s base vintage was raised in used oak while only 20% of reserve wine was. The dosage is 5 grams per liter.
Reserve Perpetuelle Blanc de Blancs Extra NV
Robert Moncuit's Reserve Perpetuelle is a blend of reserve wines from various vintages, each of which is kept in tank separately before they are blended. The current release spans six different vintages, 2006 - 2012, and the dosage is 2 grams per liter. It is the same wine that the domaine used to just call Blanc de Blancs Extra NV.
Les Chetillons Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs
The first vintage of Chetillons produced by Champagne Robert Moncuit was from the 2008 vintage. Les Chetillons, made famous by Champagne Pierre Peters, is a vineyard we have long admired. It encapsulates the heights that Chardonnay can reach in the Côte des Blancs. Robert Moncuit's Les Chetillons comes from a two hectare parcel planted in 1956 in the village of Mesnil.
It is fermented in tonneaux and left in barrel until the April after harvest. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is bottled the July after harvest and is aged on cork before being disgorged. The wine is not chaptalized or filtered and is zero dosage.
