Champagne Moutard NV Brut Grande Cuvee 1.5L
100% Pinot Noir | Alc: 12.0%
Côte des Bars, Champagne, France

Winemaker’s notes:
Moutard NV Brut Blanc de Noirs Cuvee is the pillar of Moutard’s production as it is a blend of several of the best vintages. The refined, rich nose evokes notes of butter, almond and brioche. A lively, elegant and balanced palate with good mouthfeel.

Critical Acclaim:
“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.”  90 Pts – Wine Advocate

“A Côte des Bars pinot noir Champagne based on the 2013 vintage, this has the vinous red-fruit character and seashell minerality of a Marsannay. The acidity makes it feel austere and tense, as well as focused and bright, a line drive of flavor that brings you back for more.”  92 Pts – Wine & Spirits

“Tropical hints of papaya and passion fruit pâte de fruit are enlivened by bright and tangy acidity, layered on the lively bead with flavors of Gala apple, blanched almond and fresh ginger. Well-knit and vibrant, with a sleek, minerally finish.”  91 Pts – Wine Spectator
