    Default Pierre Moncuit Brut, Blanc de Blanc HUgues De Coulmet

    This wine I tried at UNC-Chapel Hill this weekend while entertaining some
    Associates. Truely outstanding and great PQR.

    Has anyone tried this one, if so what was your opinion.

    I found it pure, some honey, pear, plum, just outstanding.

    Nice Champagne de vigneron, but to me it lacks a bit of grip and I do not
    think it resembles the terroir of Le Mesnil sur Oger. I really prefer
    Pierre Peters.

    Hi Richard,

    Producer is Pierre Moncuit, name of the wine is Hugues de Coulmet, and Le
    Mesnil-sur-Oger is the Grand Cru village in Cote de Blancs where the main
    part of grapes of Pierre Moncuit come from, and where the winery is
    located. The grower does not designate Hugues de Coulmet as Grand Cru,
    though, indicating that they use some grapes from other villages out of Le
    Mesnil-sur-Oger in which is their basic bottling.

    I do not mean that it is a bad wine!!!!

    Best,

    s.

    Someone told me this wine gets its fruit in the area adjacent to producer of
    Krug. Any truth?

    One Krug wine, "Clos du Mesnil", a Blanc de Blancs (chardonnay
    only) comes from Le Mesnil (as Le Mesnil-sur-Oger usually is
    shortened). But their standard Brut and their vintage brut
    usually are made up from some four or five dozens of crus
    (= villages).

    Cuvée "Hugues de Coulmet" is one of Moncuit's more affordable but still
    excellent bottles, the only one not from Le Mesnil Grand Cru, coming in
    fact from the area known as les Coteaux du Sézannais, around Sézanne,
    more or less a southern extension of the Cote des Blancs.

    Don't know "Fruit", but "Delos" is the name of their non-vintage BdB
    from le Mesnil, it definitely shows signs of mesnilness...
