A classic high quality champagne has been added to our portfolio, proudly and exclusively distrubuted by Puente del Ea.
Champagne Robert Moncuit was founded in 1889 and has a long history dating back five generations. Alex Moncuit created the vineyard in the 1890’s but it was not until 1935 that Robert, his grandson created his first cuvée. Robert Moncuit continued to produce this exceptional Champagne until his death in 1987. This Champagne house is now in the hands of his daughter Françoise and his son Pierre Amillet, who has been the winemaker since 2000. Champagne Robert Moncuit owns 8 hectares of vineyards in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, in the heart of what is perhaps the most sought after of all grands crus in the Côte de Blancs
RÉSERVE PERPÉTUELLE Extra Brut is a champagne that combines complexity and freshness. It is a Blanc de Blancs that is equally suitable as an aperitif or gastronomic pairing.
It is made with Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger, a terroir famous for the lively and spicy wines it offers. Pierre Amillet, Robert Moncuit’s grandson, started this perpetual reserve in 2006. Every year, it is renewed 50%, which allows it to maintain a pleasant freshness. “We pick the very ripe grapes during the harvest”, explains Pierre Amillet, “this allows to obtain frank and expressive aromas, preserving great freshness”. We currently find in this cuvée wines ranging from 2006 to 2014. The grapes are pressed in a traditional press, then the wines are decanted and swept the next day. When making the cuvée, Pierre Amillet chooses the most meaty and expressive wines. Malolactic fermentation takes place and the wines are stored in 140 hl barrels.
Réserve Perpétuelle Robert Moncuit is a tasty, complex and long lasting Blanc de Blancs champagne. It is a cuvée that will find a pleasant resonance with seafood or sushi.
LES ROMARINES ROSÉ Extra Brut is a fruity and generous rosé champagne. It is a cuvée that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with a gourmet dish made with white meat. It is made on the same basis as the Les Grands Blancs cuvée. Some Grands Blancs barrels are selected for their fruitiness. These are barrels only from the Grand Cru terroir of Mesnil-sur-Oger. To this base, Pierre Amillet, Robert Moncuit’s grandson, adds around 7% red wine from Ambonnay, a Grand Cru terroir from the Montagne de Reims.
Les Romarines cuvée is made from the same vintage, but the year is not indicated on the bottle. After a minimum of 3 years in the cellar, the champagne is slaughtered and dosed in Extra Brut. It is a cuvée of intense, generous red fruit, with great maturity that balances the tension of the Mesnil-sur-Oger terroir.
LES GRANDS BLANCS Extra Brut is a champagne full of freshness, with that touch of delicacy and complexity that distinguishes great cuvées. Perfect for an aperitif.
Les Grands Blancs Robert Moncuit reflects the terroir of the house, which extends over 8 hectares over the villages of Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger. Two Grand Crus terroirs from the Côte des Blancs, famous for their Chardonnay, which produce compact wines of exceptional finesse. “We pick the very ripe grapes during the harvest,” explains Pierre Amillet, Robert Moncuit’s grandson, “this allows to obtain frank and expressive aromas, maintaining great freshness.”
The grapes are pressed in a traditional press. Then the wines are deposited and toned the next day. They are aged in oak, in 228-liter barrels. Malolactic fermentation takes place. At the beginning of May they are bottled and then spend 3 years in the winery where they carry out the second fermentation and develop their aromas.
The wine and the terroir to express themselves in the best way. It will go perfectly with an aperitif or at the beginning of a meal with a cold starter.
