2004 Pierre Moncuit "Cuvée Nicole Moncuit Vieilles Vignes" Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 3-20-2013
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
I couldn't go home without a bottle after tasting this spectacular Champagne. Opulent but with spectacular verve, fine focus and a rich creamy middle, Ripe pears, delicate spices and orange blossoms linger on the nose and through the palate. All the characteristics of Mesnil from amazingly old vines and half the price of the most famous Mesnil Champagnes - and a very strong competitor to them.
Drink from 2012 to 2040

2005 Pierre Moncuit Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

We always know to pay attention when our Champagne buyer, Gary, says we need to try something. The Moncuit Delos BdB 2005 was one of those and how fantastic is this. A vintage Mesnil of this quality at this price is a rare find. Spectacular focus and balance - white peach and minerals with a lingering tangerine finish. Rounder than the NV, and less opulent than the VV, this marks a sweet spot in Grand Cru Champagne you could expect to pay twice as much for. Treat yourself on your next special occasion and you won't regret it.
Drink from 2012 to 2017

Light and crisp on the nose and moving on to an absolutely wonderful zesty palate of citrusy/tangerine like fruit - it has a wonderful mousse and a great finish. Drink like a movie star! This was the Champagne for the 2013 Oscars.
Drink from 2013 to 2015

What a value! Another great find by Gary Westby. Lovely bread/cracker notes, fairly rich but with a good highlighting tartness. Clean finish and a lovely texturaly fine mousse.

I'm no pushover for big names, but man is this a beautiful Champagne. This is the one for special gifts, anniversaries, or just splurging on a true luxury. I have to admit being surprised at just how good this Champagne is, and can heartily recommend this for all of your special holiday Champagne gifts - it's a rare occasion of linking truly great bubbles with an incredibly impressive luxury label.
Drink from 2012 to 2025

Cappellano Barolo Chinato 500ml

If you have not experienced Chinato yet, you don't know what you're missing - and this is about as good as it gets. The wonderful aromatics of Barolo combined with herbs to create a magically wonderful concoction. Traditionally used to soothe the stomach after a wonderful meal, a lot of us now use it as a liqueur. The slightly bitter herbs and roots are strangely alluring and completely different.

Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne

I can give this no better recommendation, working for K&L I have a lot of choices, and this was the wine for my wedding. You'll always find it in my cellar and I love this Champagne.
