The Moncuit family has a long history of farming some of the best vineyards in the Côte des Blancs. They began purchasing land in 1889 and by 1928 were bottling at the domaine.

The current winemaker, Pierre Amillet, is the fourth generation to lead the winery. He took over in 2000. Before Pierre took over they were selling off around 1/3 of their fruit every year and bottling only 2/3.

The estate has 8 hectares planted in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.

Almost all of the wines are fermented and raised in a combination of tank and oak, the goal being contact with the lees and the preservation of Mesnil’s ability to yield wines with pronounced minerality and precision. The malos happen naturally and they don't filter or chapitalize.

The house’s crown jewels are their single vineyard cuvées - Les Vozémieux from Oger and Les Chétillons from Le Mesnil.
