In 1889, Pierre Moncuit and his wife, Odile Moncuit-Delos, established the house of Champagne Pierre Moncuit. Since 1977, Nicole Moncuit has managed the vineyards and made the wine, while her brother Yves has managed the sales and business side of things. More recently, Nicole’s daughter Valerie has been actively assisting in the cellar. The majority of Moncuit’s vines are 50 years or older, and two parcels are just shy of their 100th birthday. In a region known for replanting vines before they reach their 30's to ensure more vigorous production, these old vines represent a rare commitment to farming and tradition. Their focus in the cellar is to bring out the purity of fruit and minerality of the soils without too much intervention. To achieve this, no wood is used during elevage but the wines are allowed to go to malolactic fermentation.
