Robert Moncuit

In 1889, Robert Moncuit’s grandfather acquired and developed the vineyard. In 1928, Robert Moncuit, a passionate 3rd generation grower, elaborated his first wine made only from Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru Chardonnay. Today, his grandson Pierre Amillet, manages the entirety of the grapes as grower-producer and sells his wines throughout the world. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, Pierre, in his turn, takes care to preserve this terroir to retain its true identity. Herbicides are totally banned. Instead, tilling deepens and strengthens the roots while promoting the growth of the microbacterial life naturally found in the soil. Over the years, the vineyard has embraced clean and sustainable practices. Fewer and fewer chemicals have been used, insecticides banned, and older techniques restored so that the soil could thrive. The harvest is strictly manual. Grapes are harvested at the natural peak of their health and ripeness so that chaptalization (the addition of sugar) can be avoided. Each plot is pressed separately to be included in a future blend in our different champagnes. All cuvées got through malolactic fermentation.
