'Special Club' Les Fortes de Terres Brut 2015

🏅Rating 92+/100 (4,25⭐)

Cédric Moussé is the fourth generation of his family to make champagne at Moussé Fils. He is young, energetic and innovative.

In 2012, Mousse completed construction of a new winery in Cuisles, designed to be as environmentally sustainable as possible. It is state of the tech art.

In 2005, Moussé joined the Club Trésors de Champagne, and began making a Spécial Club champagne in that vintage. It's the first 100-percent meunier champagne in the history of the Club.

Single vineyard Meunier comes from 4 plots in lieu-dit “Les Fortes Terres”.

Pale pink gold colour. Crushed almonds, raspberry and strawberry with splash of milk (full malo). Reductive winemaking puts emphasis on the purity of the fruit! 1g/l dosage is enough to balance. Broad-shouldered on the palate. Dry long finish. Spent over 3 years sur lee and disg. 10/2019

Solar 2015 vintage speaks from the glass. Overall that was a warm year which started with a mild and humid winter, followed by quite a dry spring and summer. Harvest started on the 9th of September.

This is one of Champagne's finest examples of pure meunier!

Réserve du Chateau Bourgogne Pinot Noir

A fantastic Pinot Noir that bats cleanup in the lineup: delicate yet sturdy, Big French yet accessible and easy to quaff. Mature red fruits, amazing aroma on the nose and a solid experiment from sip to finish - cheers! — 10 days ago

Fully La Combe d'Enfer Petite Syrah 2014

Finally an affordable Swiss wine that does not get lost in improbable blends or oak that takes up all the aromatic space! ... and the price is right. Well-worked “Petite Syrah” is a grape variety reminiscent of Syrah by its color and aromatic background. Dark color (purple-violet), brilliant, limpid. The mouth is fresh is less dense than a wine from the Rhône (for example) it is a fairly mineral expression, which tends towards Pinot Noirs or Gamay .. the mountain climate certainly has something to do with it. Nice bottle, I recommend.

Enfin un vin suisse abordable qui ne se perd pas dans des assemblages improbables ou du fût-de-chêne qui prend tout l’espace aromatique! le prix est correct. « Petite Syrah » bien travaillée est un cépage qui rappelle la Syrah par sa couleur et son fond aromatique. Robe sombre (pourpre violine), brillante, limpide. La bouche est fraîche est moins dense qu’un vin du Rhône (par exemple) c’est une expression assez minérale, qui tend vers les pinot noirs ou gamay.. le climat de montagne y est certainement pour quelque chose. Belle bouteille, je conseille.

@Mario Vaillancourt ils sont chers et très peu sont exportés car les suisses en raffolent.. Même en France on en trouve difficilement.

Les Fairendes Morgeots Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Always a great bottle at this domaine. Medium bodied, not the deepest but very classy, elegant, pure fruit, mineral, with enough richness and roundness for great balance. Really delicious. 91-92

Superbe bouteille de Germain comme toujours, quelle classe. De corps moyen, pas le plus profond et le plus riche mais frais, élégant, minéral, du fruit pur avec juste assez de rondeur et de richesse, un vrai délice. 91-92

L'Or d'Eugène Perpetuelle Champagne Blanc de Noir

The nose reveals; bruised red, golden & hints green apple, pear, dried pineapple, coconut shavings, cream, pie crust, vanillin, touch yeastiness, sea spray, fine chalkiness, limestone, volcanics, soft white spice, camomile, spring flowers & jasmine.

Mousse is in the name for a reason. The mouthfeel is the first thing that grabs you. Cotton mousse presence. The body is full. Bruised red, golden & hints green apple, pear. dried pineapple, coconut shaving, cream, pie crust, graham crackers, vanillin, touch yeastiness, sea spray, fine chalkiness, limestone, volcanics, strong sense of heat & bite on the white spice, camomile, spring flowers & jasmine. The acidity is round, crisp & lively. The finish is smartly polished;rich, lush, nicely knitted & balanced and long sets in endless grippy minerality & spice.

This will benefit nicely with another 2-5 years in bottle.

This N/V Blanc is truly one of our favorites. On its own a 94 but, with an intermittent splash of white burgundy and caramel, Granny Smith apple, near perfect!

I’ve always wanted to this paring and last night it became reality. 🤩 😳 🍏

Les Tuilières Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Pale lemon with pleasant aromas of stone fruits, citrus, herb and honey notes. On the palate flavors of ripe peach and pear with lemon citrus, honeysuckle and nutty notes. Medium+ finish, good balance ending with juicy tangy mineral character. Nice! — 8 days ago

Fall allocation just arrived at K&L and I have been out for sometime. Missed this extraordinary cuvée at a ridiculous QPR. Stocked up again. Cheers to that! 🍾🥂

Many previous notes stand.

Ivoire et Ébène Brut Premier Cru Champagne 2013

Dough, green plantain, apple, a little leafy on the nose. Intensely aromatic, lots of very fine bubbles. Bright, racy palate of citrus, apple, minerals, with some bitterness on the finish. Very good but a little austere, and the NV blend may be the better value? — 15 days ago

Visited the Aubry champagne house this summer. Especially liked their Aubry de Humbert cuvée. At 28 euro a steal.

@Peter Zandbergen Awesome. I’ll keep an eye out for it! I think their basic non-vintage brut is one of the best “everyday” bubbles money can buy.

@Josh Morgenthau Indeed! The ex-cellar prices are 16.80 EUR for the brut NV, 28 EUR for the Humbert, and 29 EUR for the Ivoire & Ebene.
