Tis the season for bubbles. Now through New Year's, Champagne will be one of the most essential ingredients for your upcoming holiday fêtes. If Champagne is not on your radar, it should be. And, there is no better way to enjoy Champagne than with Grand Cru fruit! Le Mesnil is a Grand Cru village, home to some of the finest Chardonnay in France (if not the world). Robert Moncuit produces his Blanc de Blancs Champagne in the same Grand Cru village as giants like Krug, Salon Guy Charlemagne, and Jacques Selosse to name a few. Most of the "popular" Champagne brands cannot claim that their fruit comes from a Grand Cru village, yet can cost 3x the cost of Robert Moncuit's.
A beautifully balanced Brut Champagne, it is "powerful and explosive in the glass. Lemon zest, slate and crushed rocks hit the palate in an intensely pointed, mineral-driven Blanc de Blancs. This is an especially powerful, virile Blanc de Blancs....the Brut opens up nicely, but it is defined by a real sense of weight and overall intensity." Antonio Galloni This is a holiday essential and it is one of the best kept secrets in Champagne. Incredibly food friendly, we don’t think you need a special occasion for Champagne, but if you do, Robert Moncuit over-delivers at $49. Now that's something to celebrate. We'll toast to that!
