Moutard 'Carina Lau' Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne
Winemaker Notes: In the mouth the Carina Lau Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne of Winery Famille Moutard in the region of Champagne is a powerful with a nice vivacity and a fine and pleasant bubble.
The Moutard-Diligent Family can trace their history of viticulture as far back as 1642, but it was not until the 1920’s that they began producing Champagne under their own name. Today under the stewardship of François, Véronique, and Agnès Moutard, the Estate consists of 60 acres of vines in the Kimmeridgian clay and limestone rich soils of the Côte des Bar region of southern Champagne and another 60+ in Burgundy with plots in the Yonne covering smaller, highly sought after appellations like, Chablis, Epineuil, and Irancy.
Along with Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay, the family is one of a few permitted to nurture Champagne’s “forgotten varietals”, Arbane, Petit Meslier, and Pinot Blanc. The Moutard family’s passion and dedication to excellence is evident in their sustainably farmed, terroir-driven wines and champagnes.
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
Sustainably farmed, hand-harvested 20-30 year old vines planted in argilo-calcaire on the Kimmeridgian bank. The Kimmeridgian soil of Moutard-Diligent is highly regarded as it contains high levels of mineral rich clay and marine fossils which are responsible for its high lime content. Fermented and vinifed in Burgundian oak barrels for 6 months; 4 years aging in chalk cellars.
Elegant nose of brioche, almond, and lemon curd with a touch of flinty mineral. The palate is lively, elegant, and round with delicate ribbons of bubbles. Flavors of lemon curd and mineral dominate the medium-bodied palate
