Robert Moncuit Blanc de Blancs Les Chetillons GC 2015 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
95 JD / 90 VM
The 2015 Champagne Grand Cru Les Chetillons Extra Brut has more tension and focus despite the warmth that was brought by the 2015 vintage. Youthful and fresh, the nose is tense with energy of lime zest, chalk, and green apple that will take time to open. The palate is dry and focused, with more concentration of fresh citrus of lemon, fantastic, pure, chalky texture, and a firm backbone of acidity. There is a hint of phenolic texture on the finish and the structure to age for two to three decades. Drink 2025-2045. Disgorged March 2020, it has 2 grams per liter dosage. - Audrey Frick, JebDunnuck .com
The 2015 Blanc de Blancs Les Chétillons is a pretty, open-knit Champagne from this highly regarded site in Mesnil. Citrus peel orchard fruit, white pepper and chalk all meld together nicely. Soft, silky contours add to its considerable appeal. All this needs is more depth, persistence, and complexity. Overall, the 2015 is a pretty easy going wine frmo Chetillons. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
The first vintage of Chetillons produced by Champagne Robert Moncuit was from the 2008 vintage. Les Chetillons, made famous by Champagne Pierre Peters, is a vineyard we have long admired. It encapsulates the heights that Chardonnay can reach in the Côte des Blancs. Robert Moncuit's Les Chetillons comes from a two hectare parcel planted in 1956 in the village of Mesnil.
It is fermented in tonneaux and left in barrel until the April after harvest. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is bottled the July after harvest and is aged on cork before being disgorged. The wine is not chaptalized or filtered and is zero dosage.
