M-D Methode Traditionnelle, Blanc de Blancs

A good farmer, Francois’s practices in the vineyard are sustainable. Grapes harvested from select vineyards by machine, very carefully, to maximize efficiencies, New technology in machine harvesting can make it hard to know the difference- seriously! The resultant quality is extremely high but the price is not. Harvest is a few days earlier than for still wine. Pneumatic press into stainless steel for fermentation. Secondary fermentation in bottle and 24 months on lees. 5g/l dosage.

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.
