- Closure: Cork
Champagne Montaudon is one of the most exciting and individual of Champagne Houses. The cellars are located in Reims, close to Reims Cathedral and are exported throughout Europe, USA, Japan, South Africa and now Australia. The Montaudon is still owned by the founding family, a rare thing in Champagne, which has become the home of Corporate Giants. In 1891 Auguste Louis Montaudon came to Champagne as a cellar manager. Some years later, his son Auguste Eugene, decided to create a Champagne House which danced its way to success in the 1920ís and was later to become the wine found in the top Caberet Clubs of Paris. It is said that in 1936, the mystical star of Revue Negre and Folies Bergeres, Josephine Baker signed a contract with Montaudon to supply her Caberet Clubs with first class Champagne. The rest, as they say, is history. Whilst the buildings which house the operations of Montaudon are historic, the wine making facilities are very modern, with a number of small stainless steel vats available to ferment and store the base wines until they are required for blending.
Nicks Wine Merchants / Vintage Direct have managed to secure the marketing and distribution rights for this outstanding Champagne for the Australian Market. The quality of Montaudon is exceptional as can be attested by the comparative tasting results conducted by Wine Spectator Magazine in the USA. From our own tastings the results have been very impressive, particularly so when one considers the price points compared with other much larger Champagne Houses.
The ultimate expression of Champagne as perceived by the Montaudon Family, the "Class M" out-rated the 1996 Louis Roederer Cristal ($250.00) and the 1993 Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill ($100.00) in a recent Wine Spectator tasting. The wine is beautifully presented in 19th Century replica bottles. Again, as with all the Montaudon, the Champagne pours visually to perfection with creamy mousse and extremely fine and persistent bead. Superbly refined nose of cashews, biscuit, yeast lees and subdued creme caramel end note. The palate texture is exceptionally creamy, with a sense of refinement only ever found in the top cuvees of the best producers. There is a remarkable length and persistence of flavour here, with honeycomb , yeast lees and biscuit emerging. Superb length and balance with exceptionally long aftertaste.
