Bouvet-Ladubay Wines

Bouvet-Ladubay History:

Circa 1851 Etienne Bouvet with his wife Celestine Ladubay create a winery named Bouvet Ladubay, after their names. At the age of 80, Etienne Bouvet passed away in 1908. Unfortunately, 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. After the Second World War, Justin-Marcel not only restored the stability of the House, but also built the export business and its high-quality image. In order to open up new horizons for the House, Patrice Monmousseau reached an agreement with Claude Taittinger in 1974 for the purchase of the Bouvet Ladubay by the Taittinger Group. With the complete confidence of Claude Taittinger, Patrice Monmousseau kept total control of the direction of the House which allowed the winery to preserve its family spirit. In 2005 the Taittinger Group is sold but the Champagne remains owned by the family. Once again Bouvet Ladubay has the possibility to choose its future and a new owner. After three visits in three months to Saumur, an understanding of the spirit of the House and a belief in its Director, Patrice Monmousseau, Dr Vijay Mallya, president of the world’s 3rd largest beers and spirit business, becomes the new owner. As with Claude Taittinger, Dr Mallya wants the Company to preserve and perpetuate an autonomous family spirit.

Bouvet-Ladubay Today:

Saumur is a wine appellation in Loire Valley in France. Red, white, sparkling white, and rosé [wines] are produced in Samur. The Brut de Loire wines of Bouvet-Ladubay are made from 3 varieties Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc. The distinctive nature of the landscape of Saumur originates from clay and limestone soil with the underlying ‘tuffeau’ stone. This chalky stone, dating back over 100 million years, has the ability to absorb the winter rains and release them slowly during periods of dryness. Therefore the vine receives a slow but regular hydration which is necessary for the perfect maturing of the grapes. Another quality of this unique terroir is its strong ability to store the sun’s heat during the day and release its warmth at night.

Bouvet-Ladubay sparkling wines are an affordable alternative to Champagne, and a nice addition to any sparkling lineup you may have in your collection.
