Tasty French white from Chapman tasty. Not a typical Chardonnay. — 2 months ago
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. — a month ago
Well they’ve done it again. Who is they? Why Cédric Moussé and the Club Trésors de Champagne of course. Another superstar bottle from them.
A muted pale lemon color with an effusive stream of tiny bubbles. Aromas of honeyed almonds, peaches, and crushed herbs. Fresh cherries and apricots sparkle here. Toasty brioche bread and chalky minerality show after some time with green apples being quite dominant after receiving some air.
The Master of Meunier and here it shows. 100% Pinot Meunier from the village of Cuisles located in the Vallee de la Marne. This Special Club offering is from one plot of land, giving it its name, Les Fortes Terres. Disgorged on 10/21/19 with a dosage of 1 g/l, this is refreshingly stark with beautifully racy acidity.
Full bodied and bold on palate, the complexity and purity of the Meunier shines through. Butterscotch and apples start the party off with more cherries and citrus playing along. A nice long, dry finish. Vibrant and captivating. Moussé and Special Club champagnes never disappoint. — 2 months ago
