Champagne comes in many guises - it can be a refreshing palate cleanser and a symbol of celebration - but most people don't consider it a 'serious' wine for serving at the dinner table. The Réserve Perpétuelle is a complex food friendly blend, made up of 50% of wine from the 2015 vintage and 50% reserve wines which have been kept back and stored from 2006 to 2014. It still has the refreshing raciness characteristic of Le Mesnil, combined with an elegant rounded texture and a long finish, it absolutely dereves it's place on the table.

About Champagne Robert Moncuit

The Moncuit family has been growing Chardonnay in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger on the Côte des Blancs since 1889. The village is planted with 100% Chardonnay and rated as Grand Cru, it's home to Salon and Krug's Clos de Mesnil, two of the most prestigious names in Champagne. In 1928 Robert Moncuit started to make wines under the family name and today his grandson Pierre Amillet runs the domaine.

Pierre continues the traditions of his grandfather, working organically without herbicides or pesticides to nurture microbial life and the natural balance of the soils, which allows the wines to express the identity of their sites. They harvest manually, and each plot is pressed and kept separately to give a palette for blending his cuvées. They ferment in a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel to preserve the characteristic minerality and focus for Chardonnay from Grand Cru Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
