The Mouzon-Leroux domaine has a rich winemaking tradition in Champagne dating back to 1776. They work almost exclusively with estate owned vineyards within the Verzy Grand Cru. Current winemaker Sébastien Mouzon is leaving behind his imprint of Verzy, first by converting their vineyards to biodynamic farming methods, and secondly by being one of the few producers focusing squarely on Verzy. Oddly enough, despite its status, fruit from Verzy has traditionally been blended with neighboring Grand Crus from this part of the Montagne de Reims. The more restrained wines from Verzy are finally being able to speak with a single voice, and the results are truly captivating. ‘La Blanche Voie’ is produced in miniscule quantities (just over 3500 bottles), and is one of 3 Spécial Club wines offered by Mouzon-Leroux.

From Wine Advocate:

“A blend of equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the flinty, clay-limestone soils of Verzy, the 2013 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Verzy La Blanche Voie Special Club was disgorged in July 2019 without dosage. Offering up scents of citrus pith, pomelo, verbena, and blanched almonds, complemented by subtle hints of ocean spray and honeycomb, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and intense, with a racy spine of acidity and a pure core of fruit that's complemented by a pinpoint mousse. Bone-dry but not unduly austere, it has plenty of gastronomic potential in its chiseled, mineral style.”
