Editorial Reviews for Moutard Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Grande Cuvée
A feminine expression to say the least. With it's bright floral and citrus nose gently tinged with light tones of yeast and face powder. In the mouth this is lacy with a fine mousse and good depth. Elegant and light with citrus, lemon blossom and apricot tones that are enhanced by the brisk acidity which leads through to a long, minerally finish. This develops a bit with air offering up notes of red apples sauteed in butter an the slightly fleshier mid-palate. Very nice and refreshing style. 91pts

Champagne Moutard is a traditional family run business situated in the picturesque village of Buxeuil. The vineyards are located in the southern Part of Champagne, on the sunny slopes of the Cotes des Bar. Very old cellar books relate their activity as vine growers back to the 17th century. Their Champagnes are made from their own grapes. The clay and chalky soil of the Cotes des Bar gives a rich and very specific aroma to the traditional champagne vines, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In order to offer perfectly mature Champagnes, the cuvees are left to mature in their cellars for a minimum of three years and up to fifteen years for vintage champagnes. Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir from the Côte des Bar estates Aged: On the lees for at least three years. This champagne is released when it has reached a perfect maturity, that gives both fineness and softness. Nose: Fine, rich, developed nose with fragrances of butter, almond and brioche with an elegant, balanced and generous finish. Serve: Chilled, not iced as an aperitif or to accompany seafood and fish dishes.
