Champagne Pierre Moncuit Millésimé Grand Cru Mesnil Sur Oger le Mesnil Sur Oger Blanc Champagne France 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Lovely nose, fresh and lively, but with praline notes to suggest a little richness too. Broad, expansive palate, buoyed up by a gently foaming and very persistent mousse. Lovely, biting acidity. Again just little notes of bread and nuts in the background; predominantly this is a freshly flavored, herbal white fruit style. Straightforward, yet quite delicious.

Tasted 02/10/2012 Particular cuvée, only from vines of Mesnil sur Oger and not stated as vintage but indeed it is (2008). Straw yellow with a long fine boubbles, white peach and pineapple, citrus notes of grapefruit and lime and then flowers of acacia, typical minerality of all great cru there, chalky notes and iodine. After a while the sweeter notes have moved to the yellow apple. In the mouth it is fresh with great but elegant minerality, the foam is soft, never aggressive. In the mouth you perceive sweet notes of apple and flowers and then close between the mineral and delicate citrine. Degustato 10 febbraio 2012 Cuvée particolare, solo da vigne di Mesnil su Oger e pur non dichiaratamente vintage lo è a tutti gli effetti. Giallo paglierino con una bella spuma fine e continua, al naso escono note di pesca bianca e ananas, note agrumate tra il pompelmo e il lime e poi fiori di acacia e tiglio, la mineralità tipica dei gran cru c'è tutta, note gessose e di iodio. Col tempo le note più dolci si sono spostate verso la mela gialla. In bocca è fresco e di grande ma elegantissima mineralità, la spuma è soffice mai aggressiva. In bocca si percepiscono note dolci di mela e fiori per poi chiudere tra il minerale e un livissimo citrino.

Lovely fruit characters, some citrus and ripe fruit. Lively acidity with complex fruit characters, good length.
