Notes: Produced only in the very top vintages, the Cuvée Nicole is made from over 100 year old vines and features the best elements of the Moncuit house style with an intensity and weight that sets it apart in the lineup. It is rich and deeply expressive and the inherent tension that we expect from this Mesnil-centric house.
