Mousse Fils L’Or d’Eugène (Perpetuelle Extra Brut)


Created over 95 years ago by the founder of the house, Eugène Moussé, this Champagne is the true emblem of the terroir. It was originally called Carte Or, then Or Tradition, before ending as a tribute to Eugène.

A perpetual reserve is different than a solera. To make it simple, you can imagine 2 barrels. 1 full and 1 empty. You transfer half of the full one in the empty, so both are at 50%. Then, you add 50% of the new harvest in each one. You’ll bottle one of the tank, and you keep the other one to star again the next year! Mousse Fils uses this method to strike a masterful balance between the freshness of the new vintage with the complexity and depth only “old wines” can bring.
