This is another producer we’ve picked up recently that is new to Ohio as well. The Moncuit family isn’t exactly new to the Champagne scene as their family began acquiring land in the Cote de Blancs as far back as 1889. Pierre Amillet spearheads the fourth generation, and he certainly doesn’t hide his affinity for the local chalky soils in the Cote de Blancs from which the Chardonnay grows so well. The family works with vines from the Grand Cru villages of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger, with their most prized parcel from ‘Les Chetillons' which has been in the family for over 70 years.
Blending wine from both 2015 and reserve wine from 2014 brings more attention to the stunning fruit and chalky soils coming from the Cote de Blancs. Just a hint of dosage as well as a bit of barrique aging brings an extra opulence to this wine. This is one of the more remarkable Blanc de Blancs on the market, and the fact that the fruit is all Grand Cru certainly helps.
