Pierre Moncuit Cuvée Pierre Moncuit-Delos Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (1.5LTR) 1.5 Liter
Winery Notes- 100% Chardonnay from the family's grand cru vineyards in Le Mesnil. Dosage is 9 grams/liter. Very mineraled release, where the terroir of Le Mesnil really comes through. We smell the chalk, then lurking underneath, plenty of concentrated fruit including grapefruit and an exotic pineapple note.

VINOUS REVIEW: White flowers, lemon oil, mint and chalk run through the NV (2014) Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Delos. The Brut version, done with 7 grams of dosage offers a bit more brightness in its citrus and floral-infused flavors and lightness in texture next to the Extra Brut version. Ultimately, the differences between the Extra Brut and Brut versions of the Delos are more stylistic than qualitative. Disgorged: March 2017. Dosage is 7 grams per liter.
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: 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.
WINE & SPIRITS REVIEW: From estate parcels in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, all 2010 fruit, this is a lively young blend with purity and clarity of expression. As it opens in the glass, it reveals delicate scents of apple blossoms, zesty pear-skin greenness and a pale integration of mineral acidity that makes it refreshing and delicious. The dosage is a little aggressive, but it’s there to mellow the fierceness of the acidity, the wine likely best four or five years from release.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: A fresh and creamy version, with a citrusy overtone to the subtle palate of biscuit, golden currant, smoke and slivered almond. Mouthwatering, presenting a lingering savory finish. Disgorged April 2013. Drink now through 2019.
