Pierre Moncuit in Le Mesnil sur Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs Grands Crus, owns a vineyard of about 20 hectares, exclusively planted in Chardonnay : 15 hectares in Grand Cru, and a little bit less than 5 hectares in Sézanne and a few ares in Premier Cru, its Clos. The House didn’t want to open up to other grape varieties, preferring to continue the family tradition and work to enhance the historical grape variety of its terroir. Synonymous with elegance, Chardonnay expresses itself beautifully. It offers many facets that Nicole and now Valerie like to work to offer wines with different profiles.
With its vines reaching the honorable average age of 50 years, Champagne Pierre Moncuit favours quality over yield and continually seeks to extract all the nobility of these old vines. The Cuvée Nicole Moncuit "Old Vine" testifies to this : from the "Chétillons", a 90-year-old plot, it perfectly represents the historic anchor of the house in the vineyard. In recent years, this vine has been the subject of a mass selection in order to preserve its heritage character.
Always in the interest of respecting its land, the Champagne Pierre Moncuit has naturally adopted for many years a sustainable mode of viticulture and is being certified HVE (High Environmental Value).
