Pierre Moncuit Grand Cru Brut Rose NV

DESCRIPTION
The NV (2017) Brut Rose is a nervy, taut wine, notwithstanding the presence of 25% Pinot Noir from Bouzy in the blend. Rose petal, dried herbs, mint and bright red berry fruit are nicely delineated. The 2017 is just a touch vegetal, but that note is one stand in a rich fabric. I would open the 2017 in advance to allow for some of the edgier contours to soften, and drink bottles sooner than later, just in case that vegetal element starts to emerge more forcefully.

DESCRIPTION
The new release of Pierre Moncuit Brut Rosé is composed of seventy-five percent chardonnay from Mesnil and twenty-five percent pinot noir from Ambonnay. It was disgorged in July of 2019 and finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter. It is a beautiful, pale salmon color and offers up a bright bouquet of strawberries, a touch of rhubarb, gentle smokiness, chalky soil tones and a dollop of clove in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, fullbodied, focused and complex, with a lovely core, refined mousse, fine balance and a long, succulent and complex finish. This is stylish and drinking very well right now. 2020-2030+. 90.
