Grape: Pinot Meunier
A grower since 1750, Champagne Moussé sits in the village of Cuisles, in a valley perpendicular to the Vallée 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.
Organic farming. Aged in stainless steel for 36 months, this well-balanced wine is fine and creamy in texture, with a firm backbone of mouthwatering acidity enlivening the subtle notes of baked plum, raisin-walnut toast, crystallized honey and salted almonds.
