Champagne Moutard
Including the famous '6 cepages'

UK agent: Hallgarten (

From vineyards in the Côte des Bar, in the south of the region, Moutard make a large range of Champagnes. Their most well known is the 6 Cépages, which is unusual in that it contains all six permitted Champagne grape varieties: Arbane, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (as an aside, at the end of the 19th Century they had the full roster of 11 permitted varieties - Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Arbane, Petit Meslier, Gamay, Chasselas, Savagnin Blanc and the two extinct varieties Troyen and Morillon).

They’re based in the village of Buxeuil, and currently their holdings are a respectable 21 hectares. 40% of the production is from their own vineyards; 60% is negociant activity. Since 1982, François Moutard has been at the head of the company, which he runs with his sisters Agnès and Véronique.
