Pierre Moncuit Blanc de Blancs Brut Grand Cru 2008  - First Bottle


94 Vinous -
The 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is a fabulous wine from this great Champagne vintage. Given the extended time on the lees (more than ten years) the 2008 shows quite a bit of complexity that has developed in bottle. Baked apple tart, spice, apricot, orange peel, spice, hazelnut and coffee are some of the many aromas and flavors that shape this wonderfully complex Champagne from Moncuit. The 2008 is in an ideal place for drinking now, as it offers a great deal of complexity. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged November 2020.

Too late, we are SOLD OUT!

Located in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, where grand cru chardonnay reigns supreme, Nicole Moncuit owns some of the oldest vines along the entire Cote with an average age of 45 years. For those in the know, Moncuit is a must-have for anyone serious about Blanc de Blancs. This tiny grower has officially hit superstar status and we can't keep these in stock whenever we get some -- the 2006 we sold earlier this year disappeared in a flash…

The female winemaking touch is evident alongside the magic that happens in Mesnil with incredible precision and clear-cut minerality, gorgeous texture and a sense of effortless power. It spent almost 11 years on the lees, being disgorged in November of 2020 which gives this polished-yet-powerful vintage grand cru bubbly loads of puff pastry, baker's yeast, brioche, wildflowers and aromatic spices just incredible complexity and length. See Galloni's note below, but be sure to snag some while we have it at this fantastic price!

PAIRING IDEAS: We go with fried chicken and bubbly a lot,’s fried chicken!! Seriously, though, this pairing is amazing, whether you make it at home or snag some from your favorite restaurant

MUSIC SUGGESTIONS: Beastie Boys' “Paul’s Boutique” of course!
