Francois Moutard's Story
We have been making wine for generations and generations � in fact, since the 17th century! We produce a range of Champagnes from our own grapes, and from grapes purchased from our vine-growing friends. The C�te des Bar soil, made up of clays and limestones, gives the traditional Champagne varieties � Pinot Noir and Chardonnay � those very special rich, fruity aromas which are so much appreciated by connoisseurs. The blending of wines kept for several years, enables us to offer a range of Champagnes of very reliable quality.
So that we can offer Champagnes at a perfect stage of maturity, ready for drinking, our production is cellar-aged for at least three years or between ten and fifteen years for vintage wines. From the beginning of the wine-making process to the first sign of sparkling, our ancient methods have been enriched by the latest techniques in controlling the quality of the products.
We are very proud our family business, and we hope you enjoy the fruits of our labour!
