Price: £488.28 (£40.69 per 75cl bottle. Case of 12. Includes FREE UK delivery on orders of 12 bottles or more.)
Believe it or not, Moutard Cuvee 6 Cepages is the only Champagne of its style in the world. Grown in the communes of Buxeuil and Polisy, enthusiasts will know there are 6 grape varieties permitted in the production of Champagne (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier, Petit Meslier and Arbane) and this one uses them all.
There were under 10,000 bottles of this Champagne made, which is relatively few and the Cote des Bar vineyards are renowned for their clay/ chalk soil, returning a distinctly fruity Champagne. Add to this the fact that Champagne has not been made in this way for over 100 years, and you will be hard-pressed to find a better quality/ value bubbly anywhere else.
Should really be served chilled, though not iced. It has an elegant, medium bodied poise, with even bubbles a good match for an autolytic, citrussy characer. Seafood and fish are a perfect compliment.
