Mousse Fils Special Club Brut Blanc de Noirs 2017
100% Pinot Meunier. Village/vineyard: Cuisles - 4 parcels from the lieu-dit ‘Les Fortes Terres’. Illite (green clay) soils. Elevage in stainless steel. Aged sur latte for 36 months.
Made from 100% Meunier, the 2017 Champagne Special Club Brut has a delicate approach, with its layers unfolding gently from the glass. Initially it displays notes of wet stone, pretty flowers, and delicate fresh raspberry fruits. The palate has more tension and nerve that suggests this will take more time to open, but I love its racier feel. It is linear, though not without its fruit wrapped around its backbone of minerality and acidity. Best after 2024. - 95pts Jeb Dunnuck
