Vinification:

The grapes undergo a gentle pneumatic pressing, followed by cold settling at 7C. Primary fermentation in temperature controlled tanks between 18-20C. Secondary fermentation in bottle following the traditional Methode Champenoise at 15C. A minimum of 36 months of lees ageing in bottle prior to bottling in April- May.

Conditions of the vintage: the wine year 2006 was the third warmest since 1950, marked in particular by three weeks of heatwave in July. Manual harvest - Traditional Champagne press winemaking: temperature-controlled tanks.

Bottling: In May 2007 and ageing in the cellar.


Winery information:

The Moutard family has been making wine since 1642. Since then they were always keen on exploring the potential of different terroirs, maintaining traditions as well as experimenting with different grapes varieties. Francois Moutard's 21 hectares vineyard are in Buxeuil on the Côte de Bar.

Soil

This terroir is unique in Champagne and is very similar to the Chablis soil, with Kimerigien chalk and clay which gives pure and mineral characters to the wines. Pinot Noir develops beautiful characters on this terroir while the Chardonnays are particularly generous in the microclimates around Troyes and les Riceys area, where Moutard is based.

Viticulture

The vines are pruned during the first fortnight of March using the Royat method. A green harvest or "étulage" takes place at the end of May, to enhance the quality of the grapes. The harvest is by hand.



Tasting Note:

Made from 100% Pinot Noir exclusively from Grand Cru classified villages, this Champagne has a bright golden hue with a delicate mousse. Rich and powerful, with dried fruits and toasty notes on the nose following through on the palate with a lovely elegant, lingering finish.

Food Recommendation:

To accompany fois gras-on-toast canapés on a bed of onion, sweet and savoury dishes such as duck fillet with honey
