Moutard Diligent Bourgogne Pinot Noir

A good farmer, Francois’s practices in the vineyard are sustainable. All the fruit is harvested by hand. The fruit is crushed, vatted and maceration lasts about a week. The fermentation occurs naturally. Cap-punching and pumping over twice per day. Maturation for roughly 8 months in 50% stainless steel vats, 50% 228L neutral oak. Fining, filtration and sulfur additions are minimal, with the aim to preserve the character of that particular vintage.

The Domaine Moutard-Diligent extends over 25 ha of sustainably farmed vineyards in Chablis and Tonnerois. The Moutard family has been making Champagne for the past four centuries. Francois Moutard and his two sisters, Agnes and Veronique, are fervent defenders of the family heritage. Never resting on their laurels, the family has ventured into Burgundy, a logical avenue for expansion given its proximity to Champagne and grape varietal mix. Moutard-Diligent is the result of a union in 1960 between Lucien Moutard and Josette Diligent, Francois’ parents. History, tradition and a commitment to unsurpassable quality define the domaine.
