The sales of sparkling wines in the world have been booming over the past decade or so.
This represents an opportunity for growth that French sparkling wine producers haven’t always had a chance to exploit.
Located in the Southern part of the Champagne region, in the Cote des Bars, the Moutard Family however, has been owning and managing vineyards in the next-door Burgundy region since 2004.
To sustain the family business while a new generation of 5 brothers and cousins are taking over the reins of the Champagne House, Domaine Moutard has invested over the past few years to cultivate vines in Burgundy and use their sparkling winemaking expertise for producing Crémant de Bourgogne sparkling wines.
The Moutards believe there is a definite opportunity for growth in making and selling high-quality French sparkling wines outside the Champagne region.
After making the wines in 2015 and maturing them on their lees in bottle, on the 9th December 2016, Moutard Family officially launched a complete range of 6 new Crémants de Bourgogne sparkling wines made from about 29 ha of vineyards they own in Burgundy.
Their total annual production reaches about 180K bottles.
Crémants de Bourgogne are Burgundian sparkling wines made using the Méthode Traditionelle as defined in France in 1975, the exact same elaboration process as Champagne wines.
They are made using Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Aligoté grape varieties.
Discover and explore these new sparkling wines you will soon find in restaurants and at fine wine merchants.
