TWO STARS NV Pierre Moncuit Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut ($40) From Mesnil, this stoic effort is all mineral and lees on the nose, with a hint of earthy rusticity but lots of fresh citrus on the palate. Lifted, tangy and lean, with an impressive mineral core. San Francisco Chronicle, December 2008.
RM or récoltant-manipulant. Driven by passion for their product, these producers bottle and sell their wines under their own labels. There is a potential for high quality combined with good value, and wines that might reflect the terroir of small plots of land rather than standardised blends. R stands for Récoltant ( the literal translation is "Harvester") M stands for Manipulant ( literally "Handler") These "grower" champagnes account for just under 3 percent of the total market.
