Moussé Fils MV 'Effusion Perpetuelle' Rosé Extra Brut, Champagne, France

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: 92% Meunier, 8% Pinot Noir 
  • Terroir: Villages of Cuisles, Jonquery, Châtillon-sur-Marne
  • Vinification: Hand-harvested. A perpetual reserve is different than a solera. To make it simple, you can imagine 2 barrels. 1 full and 1 empty. You transfer half of the full one in the empty, so both are at 50%. Then, you add 50% of the new harvest in each one. You’ll bottle one of the tank, and you keep the other one to star again the next year! Cedric uses this method to strike a masterful balance between the freshness of the new vintage with the complexity and depth only “old wines” can bring. The solera from this blend ranges from 2003-2018 vintages. 
  • Aging: 24 months in stainless steel 
  • Disgorged: October 22, 2020 
  • Dosage: 1.5g/L
