From the importer:

"A family-run estate, Champagne Robert Moncuit has a five generation history. Alex Moncuit started the vineyard in 1889, and in 1928 his grandson Robert created his first cuvée and Champagne Robert Moncuit was born. Robert continued to produce this exceptional Champagne until his death in 1987. His daughter Francoise took over the estate, and her son Pierre has been winemaker since 2000. The estate has 8 hectares under vine in prestigious Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Vines are tended without the use of pesticides and herbicides. Fruit is hand-harvested and sorted, with each parcel vinified separately to optimize the outcome of blending. The wines are 100% Chardonnay and a true reflection of the terroir.

The majority of the base wine is a couple of years old with about 20% reserve wine from the preceding vintage. This is the only wine in Robert's cellar that sees any oak, with approximately 30% aging in barrel. 8g dosage."
