SKU: 3103000557306570Categories: , , ,


The Champagne Mouzon-Leroux L’ascendant Solera Extra Brut is a pure expression of Verzy Grand Cru, one of the most interesting and diverse terroirs in the Montagne de Reims. This estate is certified organic wines and practicing biodynamic viticulture. Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay Disgorged in March 2021 with 1.5 grams per liter dosage, Mouzon’s latest NV Extra-Brut L’ascendant Solera is based on the 2016 vintage, complemented by 50% reserve wines drawn from a solera established in 2010. Exhibiting aromas of citrus oil, crisp green orchard fruit, nashi pear, macadamia nuts and nougat, it’s medium to full-bodied, seamless and fleshy, with fine depth at the core, racy acids and a long, mineral finish. This has turned out very nicely. Best After 2021 The NV Extra Brut Solera L’Ascendant is a solera-style Champagne based on the Atavique, with vintages back to 2010. Creamy, silky and impeccable in its balance, L’Ascendant is absolutely gorgeous. Citrus peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the Ascendant a super-appealing upper register. Vinification in oak, with full malolactic fermentation, works beautifully for this wine, as does the choice to add no dosage. This is such a distinctive Champagne.
