For today's wine we’re in Côtes des Blancs territory for lively, quintessential expressions of Chardonnay at the highest caliber: Grand Cru Champagne. The brilliant minds behind this estate are siblings Nicole and Yves Moncuit along with Nicole’s daughter (Valerie), and they’ve been running operations since 1977. Their legacy reaches as far back as the late 19th century. There are several factors that make Moncuit Delos stand out, but among them is their unique vine age. It’s tough to find older rootstock in Champagne— many vines are replaced on their 25th birthday. Moncuit Delos’ vine age, though, rises well above a thirty year average. And in fact, their limited cuvee Nicole is the culmination of vines that are 100+ years old. In another surprisingly unique twist, this estate also produces all of their wines from a single vintage, including the ones that are labeled as non-vintage. Moncuit Delos embodies a deep care for expressing seasonality. Kick start your Grand Cru collection with this special (silently vintage) champagne for an immersive, textured experience.
Labeled non-vintage but made with estate fruit from a single season.

The NV (2018 disgorged) Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Delos Grand Cru is effusive, bright and focused. The added dosage in the Brut version versus the Extra Brut lends texture and resonance while enhancing all the orchard fruit, citrus and floral flavors. Ample and broad, with notable depth, the Brut is a pure and total delight.
