A grower since 1750, Champagne Moussé sits in the village of Cuisles, in a valley perpendicular to the Vallée 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.

  • Winemaker: Cédric Moussé
  • Farming: Organic
  • Variety: 100% Meunier from old vines in Les Fortes
    Terres in Cuisles.
  • Terroir: Cuisles; 4 parcels from the lieu-dit “Les Fortes Terres” — Illite (Green Clay)
  • Vinification: Stainless Steel
  • Aging: 36 Months
  • Tasting Notes: This has always been the top vineyard at the estate and produces Meuiner with fruit flavors that veer towards exotic hints of mandarin orange, papaya, guava and even litchi, alongside the more typical red-fruit flavors that one might expect from Meunier
