TASTING NOTES
This 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. It's lively and elegant with a balanced palate and a good mouthfeel. -Winemaker's Notes
 
91pts - Vinous
"The NV Brut Grande Cuvée(100% Pinot Noir) is a very good wine with bright fresh aromatics. This mid-weight Champagne from Moutard delivers the goods. Lemon peel, white flowers, crushed rocks, mint and slate lend pretty flavorful top notes. This is a fine value in the realm of grower Champagne. The current release is based on 2017, with 30% reserve wines blended in. Dosage is 10 grams per liter. Disgorged: February, 2021."
 
91pts - Wine Spectator
"This well-cut Champagne is lacy in texture, carrying well-meshed flavors of white raspberry, verbena, pastry and honey. Focused, with a lightly juicy, minerally finish."
 
90pts - Wine Advocate
"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."
