Champagne Mousse Fils L'Or d'Eugene Perpetuelle Blanc de Noirs Brut
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.
Moussé is the first member of the Club de Tresor to make a Spécial Club wine of 100% Pinot Meunier and the first Club member to produce a Rosé de Saignée SpécialClub. 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.
WA94: A blend of 80% Pinot Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir drawn from a solera established in 2003, the latest rendition of Moussé's NV Brut Blanc de Noirs L'Or d'Eugène was disgorged in June 2019 with four grams per liter dosage. Wafting from the glass with a deep and complex bouquet of golden orchard fruit, honeycomb, mirabelle plum, candied peel and fresh pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a rich and sapid core of fruit, lively acids and a delicate pinpoint mousse.
