Rose Champagne Moutard Pere et Fils
Price: £343.92 (£28.66 per 75cl bottle. Case of 12. Includes FREE UK delivery on orders of 12 bottles or more.)
Champagne Moutard is made by a family run business dating back to the 17th century, still run traditionally in the attractive village, Buxeuil. The grapes used are only those grown by the family, and by fellow vine growing friends. The grape is 100% Pinot Noir.
A beautiful Champagne with a distinctive style - delicate pastel pink in colour with a lasting, refined, vibrant flavour. There is something remarkably appealing about a pink Champagne (or 'Champayne' as it is often mis-spelt) making it a popular gift choice, especially at Christmas and on Valentine's day. The fruitiness comes from clay and chalky soil in the Cote des Bar vineyards, in the southern part of the Champagne region. In detail, the taste is subtle. Floral aromas of peony and iris blend with the essence of red fresh fruit, like raspberries and wild strawberries. There is also a distinctive peppery and spicy tint. A delight anytime.
This Champagne is best enjoyed chilled and goes perfectly with a light meal. Salmon, chicken and seafood are ideal.
