Pierre Moncuit 1996 Cuvée Millesimé Grand Cru Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75

The 1996 vintage really brings out the minerality in a wine. This grand cru is still austere, very crisp, with some smokiness, apple-skin flavors and intense freshness. Give it another 5–6 years.

Pierre Moncuit NV Cuvée Moncuit-Delos Grand Cru Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $46

From 90-year-old vines in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, this is a superbly ripe wine, full-bodied, concentrated with a great swathe of minerality going through. This is still young, based on the 2004 vintage, but shows every sign of developing into a beautifully toasty maturity.

Pierre Moncuit NV Cuvée Pierre Moncuit-Delos Grand Cru Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $50

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.

Pierre Moncuit NV Hugues de Coulmet Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $43

From the small Champagne region around Sézanne, this is a rounded, mouthfilling Chardonnay. It has ripe citrus and orange fruit flavors with a touch of apricot. It’s a classic apéritif style.

Pierre Moncuit 1996 Non-Dosé Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $100

Very intense, very nervy wine, living on a thin wire of grapefruit and other citrus flavors but much more about pure structure. The aftertaste shows great concentration.

A good wine, this is a young, aromatic Chardonnay with lively white fruits bursting from the acidity.

Pierre Moncuit 1999 Cuvée Millesimé Grand Cru Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $62

The softness of the 1999 vintage is very apparent in this approachable wine. It is full, round, only just touched by minerality, white fruits and some almonds giving weight and character.
