The 2006 Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is a big, powerful wine. Just beginning to show the first signs of aromatic nuance, the 2006 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Hazelnut, dried pear, spice, menthol and licorice open up as the 2006 fills out its frame. Large-scaled and ample, the 2006 is another highly expressive and impeccable Champagne from Moncuit. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged: November 2014.
