Rating: *(*)
A blend of 80 percent meunier and 20 percent pinot noir, this is 50 percent 2014, with the rest made up of reserve wines from a perpetual cuvée that dates back to 2003. Tasting it just four months after its disgorgement in November of 2016, it’s youthfully constricted, its flavors of apricot, tangerine and poached pear wrapped up in a taut acidic structure. It’s supple in texture and harmoniously built, finishing with length and poise, and it promises to develop superbly…”  – Peter Liem, ChampagneGuide.net

Moussé Fils (CUISLES)

A grower since 1750, Champagne Moussé sits in the village of Cuisles, in a valley perpendicular to the Vallee de la Marne. This side valley has a unique soil in Champagne: a schist subsoil under clay. While pinot meunier often struggles to be taken seriously in Champagne, at Moussé, pinot meunier is celebrated. 80% of the vines planted are meunier, with the balance planted to pinot noir and chardonnay.

This agency is the only member of the Club de Tresor to make a Special Club wine of 100% Pinot Meunier. In the vineyards, Cedric Moussé adheres to a ‘lutte raisonee’ approach. He practices organic viticulture, using herbal infusions that act as ‘vitamins’ for the vines, cover crops, zero pesticides, and minimal doses of heavy metals like copper. His new winery, completed in 2012 may be deceiving; the modern facility leads us to believe this is a new operation. Solar panels power the cellar, tasting room, and 2 houses on the property, while geothermal energy moderates temperature throughout the winery. An underground spring provides enough water for irrigation on the farm. Moussé works almost exclusively in stainless steel, with the exception of a small amount of pinot meunier destined for his rosé. All cuvees undergo malolactic fermentation. The resulting wines seem to gush with red and dark fruits characteristic of pinot meunier, and a structured, saline minerality.
