Mousse Fils Champagne Perpetuelle Rose de Noirs Eugene 750ml
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 Meunier often struggles to be taken seriously in Champagne, at Moussé, Meunier is celebrated. 80% of the vines are Meunier, with the balance planted in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
They were the first member of Club Trésors de Champagne to make a Spécial Club wine of 100% Pinot Meunier and the first Club member to produce a Rosé de Saignée Spécial Club. In the vineyards, Cedric Moussé adheres to a ‘lutte raisonée’ approach. He practices organic viticulture, using herbal infusions that act as ‘vitamins’ for the vines, cover crops, zero pesticides, and minimal doses of heavy metals like copper.
