The Côte des Bar, Champagne’s southernmost and warmest zone, is particularly known for Pinot Noir. But Moutard, a family-owned house with roots in Buxeuil going back to 1642, also grows ancient Champagne varietals such as Pinot Meslier and Arbanne, along with the conventional grapes of modern Champagne. The family first started bottling in 1927.
The 6 Cépages is composed of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Petit Meslier, and Arbanne and is aged in the cellar for at least 10 years before release. The Grande Cuvée and both rosés are made from 100% Pinot Noir and all aged at least three years in the cellar before release.
From their 22 hectares of vineyards, the Moutards—François, Agnès, and Véronique Moutard and their sons Thomas, Edouard, Alexandre, Benoît, and Victor—always deliver excellent quality for the price!
