Rosé Effusion - Champagne Moussé Fils

Rosé Effusion

92% MEUNIER 8% PINOT NOIR

3 G/L

FEATURES
Our Rosé Effusion is a quintessential example of blending. It is created using two different perpetual blends:

  • one for the white wine
  • one for the red wine, coming from a single plot of Meunier.

Our red wine is aged 24 months in 8 years old barrels (for the youngest’s), which helps the oxidation. Its special character after a long maceration and a cold pre-fermentation makes this cuvée a real curiosity.

VINIFICATION

  • Malolactic Fermentation
  • Dosage: 1,5 g/l

AGEING
White perpetual blend: 2003-2018
Red perpetual blend: 2003-2018
22 months

Anecdote - Champagne Moussé Fils

Anecdote

100% CHARDONNAY

LIEU DIT « LES VAROSSES »
2 G/L

FEATURES
Our cuvée Anecdote is quite unusual. It is made of Chardonnay from a particular spot in Cuisles called « Les Varosses ». In the Champagne region, the name « Les Varosses » is usually describing a place where the quality of the grapes isn’t great.

25 years ago, we noticed that the soil of this plot, initially planted with Meunier, was especially deep (1.60m, unlike the rest of Cuisles: 0.70m), which is why we decided to plant Chardonnay, a varietal adapted to deep soils.

This wine is produced in small quantities. It’s a curiosity, and it is unique, as it was the first 100% Chardonnay ever to be made in Cuisles.

VINIFICATION

  • Micro vinification of a plot initially unsuitable for Chardonnay
  • Malolactic Fermentation
  • Filtration with earth filters, no fining
  • Dosage: 2 g/l

AGEING
36 months

SOIL
Terroir: Cuisles
Lieu dit: “Les Varosses”

OUR ADVICE
Ready to drink ideally 1 year after the disgorging date mentionned on the back label. Can be kept for 10 years

Les Vignes de mon Village - Champagne Moussé Fils

Les Vignes de mon Village

100% MEUNIER – CORK BOTTLING

0 G/L

FEATURES
This blend of the finest vintages is made of 100% Meunier, only from Cuisles. It has the particularity to be bottled and aged with a cork.
Before we created this Brut Nature non-vintage Champagne, our vintage cuvée Special Club was the only 100% Meunier in our range. The idea behind Les Vignes de Mon Village was to create an outstanding Champagne, aged in bottles sealed with cork, that would still appeal to everyone.

It is also a tribute to Jean Marc Moussé, who adored Meunier and was the mayor of Cuisles during 25 years.

VINIFICATION

  • Micro vinification in small stainless tanks
  • Malolactic Fermentation
  • Filtration with earth filters, no fining
  • Aged in cork-sealed bottles
  • Zero Dosage: 0 g/l

AGEING
24 months

SOIL
Terroir: Cuisles

Our soils are made up of 4 different strata:

  • 20 cm of clay topsoil
  • 40 cm of very porous clay sands (with 80% of sand)
  • 30 cm of green clay (Illite), hydric reserve of our soils
  • Limestone marl: limestone + clay

OUR ADVICE
In order to be fully expressive, this Champagne should not be placed in a carafe, but served in white wine glasses 5 minutes before tasting, which will sweeten the oxidation.

Ready to drink ideally 1 year after the disgorging date mentionned on the back label. Can be kept for 20 years

Terre d’Illite 2015 - Champagne Moussé Fils

Terre d’Illite 2015

95% MEUNIER 5% PINOT NOIR

FEATURES
This cuvée is named after the green clay which can be found in Cuisles. The soil here is quite shallow. It contains a high share of well-drained marl limestone, and always a thick layer of green clay, called “ILLITE” in pedology. In times of prolonged drought, throughout the summer months, Illite is the only type of soil retaining its moisture. The finesse and purity of this green clay guarantee that there’s always enough water for our grapes

ABOUT 2015
The year started with a mild and humid winter, followed by quite a dry spring and summer. The harvest started on the 9th of september, with a great quality for the black grapes.
