Pierre Moncuit Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

SKU #100237 93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark From estate parcels in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, all 2010 fruit, this is a lively young blend with purity and clarity of expression. As it opens in the glass, it reveals delicate scents of apple blossoms, zesty pear-skin greenness and a pale integration of mineral acidity that makes it refreshing and delicious. The dosage is a little aggressive, but it’s there to mellow the fierceness of the acidity, the wine likely best four or five years from release. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark White flowers, lemon oil, mint and chalk run through the NV (2014) Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Delos. The Brut version, done with 7 grams of dosage offers a bit more brightness in its citrus and floral-infused flavors and lightness in texture next to the Extra Brut version. Ultimately, the differences between the Extra Brut and Brut versions of the Delos are more stylistic than qualitative. Disgorged: March 2017. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This a tight and mineral wine from Mesnil-sur-Oger in the heart of the Côte des Blancs of Champagne. It’s still youthful, fresh and crisp, with lemon and tangy citrus flavors. The lively character will certainly round out in 5–6 years. Inner quote mark (5/2013)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A fresh and creamy version, with a citrusy overtone to the subtle palate of biscuit, golden currant, smoke and slivered almond. Mouthwatering, presenting a lingering savory finish. Disgorged April 2013. Drink now through 2019. Inner quote mark (11/2014)

This wine has a big nose that is Meursault like in its scale but without the oak. I found it full of ripe fruit and fragrant wild flowers. On the palate it is dry and cutting on the back end but full and ripe up front. This all Mesnil, all estate Champagne really shows its class on the finish, which is very, very long for its low price. So good!
