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 and the grapes that they buy in from friends who are also vine growers.
The grapes undergo a gentle pneumatic pressing, and the must is transferred to temperature controlled vats with cold settling at 7C. The rose wine gets its colour from the saignée or bleeding method. The traditional method is used of secondary fermentation in the bottle to obtain the "prise de mousse" at 15°C. It is then aged for a minimum of 12 months, prior to bottling in April - May.
