More Meunier magic from Moussé. Tasted blind, you probably would not peg this as an entry level bottle. Pure gold with attractive perlage. Straight chalk and minerality on the nose immediately. Orchard fruit and black cherries along with lime slices. A nice touch of soil makes this absolutely sing.
Perpetual reserve. Half of the blend is from a reserve that goes back to 2003 giving it charm and character. 80% Meunier/20% Pinot Noir with a low dosage of 3.5 g/l from Cuisles. Organic and natural methods used. Malolactic fermentation is carried out.
Very pure and clean even with the earth notes. Elegant and sexy on the tongue. Racy acidity, energy, and such beautiful tension. More chalk and orchard fruits on the palate with a little yeast. Still incredibly young but it feels mature and thoughtful. Let this sit and really meditate over it. Beautiful. — 3 hours ago
Finally seems to open up, dark fruit profile, fresh, yet some grip and power to it, good balance and decent length too .
Excellent et semble s’ouvrir un peu, frais mais avec de la puissance, belle finale de bonne longueur et assez équilibré, très bien. 90-91 — a day ago
Pop and pour. It was a rough day, so perhaps take this note with a grain of salt, but...my wife says this is the best champagne we've had in recent memory, and I would describe this as Chevalier Montrachet with bubbles. On the nose: rich creamy vanilla lemon chiffon, soft honey, hazelnut, perfectly balanced richness and fruit. On the palate: soft mousse, fantastic acidity and richness, lemon, grilled nuts, fantastic density, and a soft, dark, finish. Wow, absolutely spectacular. — 3 days ago
Nose: pleasant pine. Herbal.
Palate: massively dense. Pineapple. Huge acidity. Rich. Vibrant. Quite good. The density is really impressive but still pitch perfect acidic balance. Great winemaking.
Drink now between 0-60 minutes after open.

Somewhat of an outlier in the world of serious Champagne, Moussé Fils predominately works with Pinot Meunier which makes up the overwhelming majority of their holdings. This example, “Les Vignes de Mon Village” happens to be 100% Pinot Meunier from Cuisles bottled with zero dosage and fermented in stainless steel (as is most of their wines). One other rather interesting aspect of this particular designation is that it’s bottled and aged with a cork enclosure, as opposed to a crown cap. In the glass, it presents as a pail straw color with a persistent mousse. The nose displayed pink apple, squished raspberries, red flowers and an autolytic note that reminded me of wet chalk. On the palate, lemons, pears, strawberry, chalk and…on the finish, which is quite long and very dry, there’s lime. Fabulous acid. A lovely Champagne. Moussé Fils is a producer that should be on everyone’s radar. Disgorged January 31, 2018. — 23 days ago
