Jean moutardier

The Moutardier family has been firmly anchored in the village of Le Breuil for more than 250 years. Starting with Octave Moutardier, a winegrower at the end of the 19th century, and his sons Camille and Jean. The latter who, in 1946, constructed his own vineyard built on respect for Champagne tradition and particularly the Meunier, a variety of which is indigenous to the region.

The story of this family is inextricably linked to the region, to the local culture and thus to the people who have fashioned Champagne Moutardier over the decades. Operating 18 hectares of vineyard, the Muenier grape typically provides around 80% of the supplies, with equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for the rest. In 1978, Jean’s daughter Elisabeth joined and in 2010 her son William took over leadership of the house, followed by his brother Simon in 2012.
