The adventure goes on
Since 2012, the story of the Jean Moutardier Estate has been written by two brothers… It is a new start combining modernity, creativity, the respect of tradition, and the House’s unique history we are extremely proud of.
The new generation
William : « I’m especially interested in winegrowing and winemaking. It is of utmost importance for me to follow the evolution and monitor the natural transformation of the vineyard and of the wine as closely as possible. »
Simon : « For me, developing our sales without forgetting our family philosophy is a great challenge. Exporting our champagnes is also a huge opportunity to promote the Meunier even better. »
Meunier, more than just a grape variety
The Surmelin Valley is a unique valley. There, the grapes ripen later and the subsoil is highly chalky. Over the years, the Meunier seems to enjoy our terroir and express all of its depth. The balance and minerality displayed upon harvest are increasingly exceptional.
It is thus compulsory to carefully plan the best picking time for each of our plots. We seek to obtain vinous, complex, elegant and gourmet wines.
Land and tradition
Our vineyards are situated in two villages: Le Breuil and Baulne en Brie. Thus, we can highlight a specific terroir of the Surmelin Valley.
Soils Our argilo-calcareous soils produce great freshness and minerality within our Champagnes. In 2015, the House made a new start when it restored tillage practices which allow us to search deeper for the organoleptic properties of our terroir.
We modified our packaging once more in order to modernize our image while keeping the House’s historical landmarks, such as the lions which have been there since the beginning.
We insisted on bringing a breath of fresh air to our House and our cuvées.
