Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"The NV Brut Extra Blanc de Blancs is a blend of reserve wines from vintages 2006 through 2010. It is also quite a bit leaner and brighter than the straight Brut Champagne. I do find the character of Mesnil comes through beautifully here, with plenty of lemon, grapefruit, mint and white pepper overtones. The pulsating, salivating finish really seems to bring out the best of this fruit."

Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"100% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru villages of Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger, Robert Moncuit's NV Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs displays bright white fruit and floral aromas on the pure and chalky, very elegant nose. The delicate mousse gives way to a very mineral and persistent taste on the palate. This medium to full-bodied Brut is full of character and complexity; it is lovely, pure, and shows lots of finesse and a very good length. I tasted the newest release that based 80% on 2011 and 20% on 2010. It was disgorged in May 2014 with a dosage of six grams per liter and is an excellent Brut from chalky soils."

Product Description:

"The base wine is 2010 with about 20% reserve from 2009. Approximately 30% of the cuvée is aged in oak. This is the only wine in his range that sees any oak. 8g dosage." -Importer

"Champagne Robert Moncuit in Mesnil sur Oger (Côte des Blancs; the domaine exists since 1889) cultivates 25 plots adding up to eight hectares of Chardonnay, mostly 50+ year old vines on chalky soils. Moncuit works the soil but is not an organic wine producer. The vins clairs were fermented in stainless steel and kept on the lees for ten months, so the bottling is usually in July. Only the Reserve is partly fermented in oak (20%). The domaine has existed since 1889. Moncuits aims for fresh Champagnes that are not dominated by the fruit, but the chalky terroir of Mesnil. Indeed the wines have a great purity and finesse, but a good complexity too." - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
