    November 20, 2021 - Saturday evening with our friend Jasmin. Disgorged April 2018. Smoky nose, pineapple, citrus, hay and minerality. Med+ acidity, Med flavor intensity, Med body, Med alcohol, Med finish. Nice salinity, still young, balanced fruit, pineapple, smokiness, like it.

    July 17, 2021 - July 2019 disgorgement, 100% Pinot Meunier with no dosage. This bottle showed a more precise, leaner and powerful quality. It had some shadings of Sauvignon Blanc, meaning some energy that was spicy, tart, almost like a gooseberry, and detectable grapefruit, too. Actually, it shows pretty similar to the 2019 disgorgement we poured blind a few months ago. Some apple here, plenty of acidity and racy in tone. I have to say that I tend to favor the 2018 disgorgement (which is made up of 2014-2016 base wines), as the 2017 base wine's addition to the perpetualle here seems to have leaned down the features of the rest of the cuvee's proportions. It will be very interesting to see what Cedric's addition of the 2018 base does to the perpetualle's balance. I know this all might sound like a lot of nonsense but this is still a young perpetualle cuvee, and one that can be in my opinion impacted greatly by the newest base vintage that gets added. So, with 2018's inclusion coming out this year, I will be eager to see how the wine's balance and composition translates in the glass. In sum, I really like this wine and continue to believe it is the most distinctive wine in Cedric's range.

    May 29, 2021 - Another bottle of the 2018 disgorgement. This showed terrific again with peach, honeyed apple, mint, and a nice tang of citrus acidity. This bottle also had a zesty quality yet drank with the same balance as the bottle last month. Drained by the table, nothing to retaste tomorrow :)

    May 27, 2021 - Somewhat of an outlier in the world of serious Champagne, Moussé Fils predominately works with Pinot Meunier which makes up the overwhelming majority of their holdings. This example, “Les Vignes de Mon Village” happens to be 100% Pinot Meunier from Cuisles bottled with zero dosage and fermented in stainless steel (as is most of their wines). One other rather interesting aspect of this particular designation is that it’s bottled and aged with a cork enclosure, as opposed to a crown cap. In the glass, it presents as a pail straw color with a persistent mousse. The nose displayed pink apple, squished raspberries, red flowers and an autolytic note that reminded me of wet chalk. On the palate, lemons, pears, strawberry, chalk and…on the finish, which is quite long and very dry, there’s lime. Fabulous acid. A lovely Champagne. Moussé Fils is a producer that should be on everyone’s radar. Disgorged January 31, 2018.

    April 23, 2021 - Book Club - Reunited (Steve's Place): blind: guessed blanc de blanc and zero dosage

    2014-2017

    Wow - this is the same NV at the 2014-2016 but with the addition of 2017. That is very hard to wrap my head around because the 2014-16 had a hint of sweetness and this wine is as angular and aggressive as it gets with a sparkler. Too much for my liking other than a food wine. Strong citric acid and low fruit profile that fades mid palate. Not balanced.
