Mousse Fils Champagne Brut Blanc de Noirs Terre D’Illite 2013
Organic 95% Meunier, 5% Pinot Noir
A grower since 1750, Champagne Moussé sits in the village of Cuisles, in a valley perpendicular to the Vallee de la Marne. This side valley has a unique soil in Champagne: a schist subsoil under clay. While pinot meunier often struggles to be taken seriously in Champagne, at Moussé, pinot meunier is celebrated. 80% of the vines planted are meunier, with the balance planted to pinot noir and chardonnay.
