Description

Producer notes 

Established by Etienne Bouvet in 1851, this is the second oldest producer of sparkling wine in Saumur and became the official supplier to the British government by receiving “The Appointment of the House of Lords” in the 1870s. At the age of 80, Etienne Bouvet passed away. There were no direct descendants to continue the genius of Etienne Bouvet and the legal successors were not able to maintain the excellence of the House. Weakened by the First World War and the economic crisis of 1929, the “Bouvet Empire” was broken up and auctioned in 1932.
In 1932, the winery was purchased by Justin-Marcel Monmousseau. His son, Jean Monmousseau, succeeded him in 1946. It is in the 1950s, just after the Centenary of the House, that the exceptional Bouvet Ladubay wines’ notoriety was restored. In 1972, Patrice Monmousseau, the grandson of Justin-Marcel, succeeded his father, Jean. In 1974 the House was bought by the Taittinger group which was sold in 2005.
Together with his daughter Juliette Monmousseau, Managing Director, Patrice Monmousseau founded the investment holding Ogmius Capital, in which capital investment companies invested namely Ouest Croissance, CM CIC Investissement and Unigrains. Together with their new partners the family Monmousseau bought back 100% of the shares of the company and are now fully independent.

Tasting notes

Bright and shimmering cherry red colour. Peony pink froth. Delightful aromas of ripe red berry fruits. The fine tannins are well balanced by a refreshing sparkle and the Demi-Sec dosage.
