John Gilman - View from the Cellar:

"With each passing year, I become more and more enamored of the wines from this superb Côte des Bar producer located in the village of Buxeuil. The new release of Moutard Grande Cuvée is a stunning bottle of non-vintage Brut, offering up a deep and complex nose of apple, warm bread, a very complex base of minerality, a touch of nutskin, gentle leesiness and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and still quite youthful, with a rock solid core of fruit, very elegant, pinpoint bubbles, laser-like focus and great grip and elegance on the very long and perfectly-balanced finish. All this beauty needs is a few years in the cellar to really come into its own. Great juice. 2015-2035." (08/13)

Wine Spectator:

"Tightly knit and pungent, offering floral overtones to the ripe apple, white raspberry, ground ginger and citrus zest notes, all backed by minerally acidity. Disgorged May 15, 2012. Drink now through 2016. 25,000 cases made. -AN" (2013)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"I was quite taken with the wines I tasted from Moutard this year. The NV Brut Grande Cuvee (Pinot Noir) emerges from the glass with high-toned notes of Mirabelle plums, kirsch, crushed flowers and sweet herbs. There is an exotic quality to the Grande Cuvee that is totally beguiling. Intensely aromatic and layered through to the finish, the Grande Cuvee impresses for its delicate, feminine personality and overall balance. This release is based on the 2009 vintage with the addition of 30% reserve wines. Dosage was 10 grams per liter. Disgorged July 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015." (11/12)

Product Description:

"The families of Champagne Moutard Diligent have been living in the village of Buxeuil since the mid 17th century, and have a long tradition of both grape growing and wine production. Located in the Cote des Bar, the vineyard soils are made up of clays and limestones, lending to rich, fruity aromas and good minerality. Champagnes are cellar-aged for at least three years for non-vintage wines and up to ten and fifteen years for vintage wines." -Winery
