Moutard Rosé Cuvaison Brut

Champagne Moutard Rosé de Cuvaison Brut


  • From vineyards situated on clay-limestone soils in the villages of Buxeuil and Polisy.
  • A Rosé Champagne made from Pinot Noir that showcases why the Cote des Bar is so HOT right now – This is a vivid release with layer upon layer of personality

Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir

Elaboration: Skin contact method. After harvesting the grapes are placed in wooden vats. Maceration during 4 days and fermentation until a particular density is reached in order to preserve the fruit. Temperature controlled stainless steel vats with cool setting at 45°F.

Tasting Notes:  “A rosé of pinot noir from the Côte des Bars, this gains its color from a short maceration on the grape skins. The ripeness of the fruit comes through in exotic spices, like Szechuan peppercorns if they could buzz with coolness rather than heat. The red fruit flavor is tight and savory, without even a whisper of sweetness, lasting with gentle, quiet persistence.” – Wine & Spirits

In 1958, Lucien Moutard married into a family whose ancestors first cultivated vines on the Buxeuil hillsides in 1642. Buxeuil is a village 200 km southeast of Paris in the Côte-des-Bar region. Lucien had inherited the art of cultivating the local land from his father, Paul, and passed it on to his children: Agnès, Véronique, and François.

The family patriarch instilled a sense of family in his children. “Working as a family was very important to him. He would be happy to see the family’s success,” says his son, François. Today, François, Agnès, and Véronique carry on the family business along with another generation. The entire family is well-versed in every step of the winemaking process from vine to customer.
