  1. MOUSSE 2015 BRUT SPECIAL CLUB LES FORTES TERRES 100% MEUNIER

    Item #: i_321887
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS-"Disgorged in October 2019 with one gram per liter dosage, Moussé's 2015 Extra-Brut Special Club Lieu-Dit Les Fortes Terres unwinds in the glass with notions of pear, honeycomb, mirabelle and red apple. Full-bodied, elegantly muscular and enveloping, with racy acids, a beautifully refined pinpoint mousse and a long, precise finish, this concentrated but impressively vibrant, incisive wine has turned out very beautifully. Tightly coiled, this is serious but not at all austere and will reward at least a few years' patience.'

    Made in diminutive quantities, this is the first Rosé de Saignée "Special Club" produced. This comes from another 100% Meunier vineyard in Cuisles called Le Bouts de la Ville.

  3. MOUSSE EXTRA BRUT "L'OR D'EUGENE" PERPETUELLE BLANC DE NOIRS

    Item #: i_377242
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 94
    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "A blend of 80% Pinot Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir drawn from a solera established in 2003, the latest rendition of Moussé's NV Brut Blanc de Noirs L'Or d'Eugène was disgorged in June 2019 with four grams per liter dosage. Wafting from the glass with a deep and complex bouquet of golden orchard fruit, honeycomb, mirabelle plum, candied peel and fresh pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a rich and sapid core of fruit, lively acids and a delicate pinpoint mousse."
    Disgorged 11/18/2019 with a dosage of 4 grams per liter.

    IMPORTER'S NOTES - "I’m sure we’ll start referring to this as “Lord Eugene” at some point, we’re such wags. It replaces/updates the old NV (which was called “Noire Reserve); based on 2013 with a perpetual reserve going back to 2003, deg 12/2105, it’s 80% Meunier and 20% PN. The aroma is refined, friendly but not ingratiating; on the palate it’s a superb Blanc de Noirs, diligent, structured, fruity but not gushing, disciplined but not severe. I think and have always thought it’s the ideal for Meunier NV; thoroughly delicious but not an avalanche of chocolate and pumpernickel." —Terry Theise

  4. MOUSSE EXTRA BRUT LES VIGNES DE MON VILLAGE

    Item #: i_375414
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    IMPORTER'S NOTES-"100% Meunier, and a lower pressurage. It is, touchingly, a tribute to Cédric’s father, who was mayor of Cuisles and who “loved Cuisles.” 50-50 2014-2015...zero dosage; it’s a rugged, muscular Meunier, showing more locality than fruit. Water drains into the soil’s third layer, the green clay Illite, which occurs nowhere else in Champagne. If you want a solid contained Champagne (and fear a drop of sweetness will kill you) this one’s pretty impressive." —Terry Theise
