This RM Champagne Pierre Moncuit Brut , with 12% alcohol, scored 18 Dionysian points out of 20. Tiny bubbles, fresh baked bread, and a medium length aftertaste of toast makes this Champagne well worth its cost at just about $40.


The “RM” tells us that the winery grew the grapes and made the Champagne itself. It is just a delightful bottle of sparkling wine.


Summer Quiche with orange helped the Champagne show off its better qualities. Try some.

This Champagne  comes from Le Mesnil sur Oger in the Champagne District and is a Grand Cru wine. Champagne can make every summer meal a special event. In vino veritas.
