Expert Reviews & Awards
"Established in 1891, Champagne Montaudon is at the bargain end of Champagne, and offers particularly good value for money. It is a pinot dominant style – with pinot noir and pinot meunier making up 75% of the blend. What makes it standout is the exceptional balance of bright and youthful fruits with a nice touch of aged French pastry complexity. The wine is bright mid straw and is reserved with attractive strawberry and citrus fruits plus praline complexity from aged reserve wines. It is then dry and fresh in the mouth, mid-weight and given impact thanks to that zesty acidity. There is good length to finish too with a solid dose of aged pinot toastiness adding impressive complexity for a wine at this price."

The Montaudon family's connection to Champagne began in 1891 with Auguste-Louis, a Cellar Master at Epernay. The family passion for Champagne-making was passed down from generation to generation, as Montaudon became a name to be reckoned with in Champagne. Auguste-Louis's son, Auguste-Eugene combined this tradition with a great entrepreneurial spirit, founding the Maison Montaudon. The company enjoyed its first golden age of commercial prosperity in the heady tumult of the Golden twenties in Paris.

The Champagne wine region is the closest wine region to Paris and the home of one of the world's most prestigious sparkling wines, Champagne. Champagne has a cool, continental climate that keeps the sugar levels in the grapes very low as well as keeping acid levels in the grapes quite high. This is why Champagne is ideal for sparkling wine production. In addition, the soils in Champagne are chalky, which enables good drainage and good water retention, depending on the seasons. The three most well known sub regions of Champagne are; Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne and the Côte de Blanc. The three grapes varieties that are used in Champagne wine making are; Chardonnay (which provides acidity, floral and citrus characters), Pinot Noir (which provides the structural backbone and red fruit character) and Pinot Meunier (which provides lively fruit flavours). Champagne must be made in the traditional method, whereby the grapes are handpicked. Non-vintage wines must be aged for 15 months, including 12 months on lees. Vintage wines must be aged for 36 months. Vintage Champagne is only made in the best years whereas non-vintage Champagne is blend of the best wines from each year.
