Description

Subtle with complexity, the first floral senses blend with the essence of red fresh fruit such as raspberries and wild strawberries evolving towards peppery and spicy aromas. A beautiful Champagne with a distinctive style. The Moutard’s have been making wine since 1642. Francois Moutard’s 21-hectare vineyard is situated in Buxeuil at the extreme south east of Champagne on the Côte des Bar, the highest region in Champagne. Pinot Noir thrives particularly well on the clay and limestone soils. Francois is one of the few growers who still grow the Arbane grape; as he also grows the Petit Meslier, he is one of the very few vignerons who can produce a Champagne – 6 Cepages – which is made up of the six allowable grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Petit Meslier and Arbane. 10 – 20 year old vines. Vines are pruned during the first fortnight of March using the “Chablis” method and “Guyot” for the Pinot Noir. Vineyards are then ploughed and fertilised during the winter months. The grapes are hand harvested. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vinified as Champagne with the balance of still Pinot Noir produced with 10 g/l dosage.Aged for a minimum of three years. Food Recommendation:- Chilled, not iced as an aperitif or to accompany seafood and fish dishes.
