Champagne Moutard Grand Cuvee NV

The Moutards 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 Cote 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.

Vinification

Viticulture
10 – 20 year old vines. Vines are pruned during the first fortnight of March using the Guyot method. Vineyards are then ploughed and fertilised during the winter months. Hand harvested.
