The Montaudon family’s connection to Champagne began in 1891 with Auguste-Louis, a Cellar Master at Epernay. The family passion for Champagnemaking was passed down from generation to generation, as Montaudon became a name to be reckoned with in Champagne. Auguste-Louis’ son Auguste-Eugène combined this tradition with a great entrepreneurial spirit, founding the House Montaudon. The company enjoyed its first golden age of commercial prosperity in the heady tumult of the Golden twenties Paris. In 1936 Josephine Baker, the iconic star of the Folies Bergères, signed an exclusive contract with House Montaudon for the supply of a ‘First Class Champagne’ to her Parisian cabaret. Philippe, son of Auguste-Eugène, built up a network of close partnerships within the Champagne region, signing agreements with various winegrowers to ensure a stable supply of top-quality grapes. His natural charisma and formidable business skills saw him serve as President of the Champagne Merchants’ Union for six years. He also established a strict system of quality control for all wines bearing the Montaudon name. Luc, son of Philippe, worked to consolidate House Montaudon standing in the traditional French market. Flying the flag for the Montaudon brand, and the Champagne region as a whole, he also worked tirelessly to boost the company’s international reputation. His extensive travels and savy investments in new markets helped to establish Montaudon as a name that Champagne lovers worldwide – from casual drinkers to seasoned connoisseurs – know and trust. House Montaudon has joined the Alliance Champagne group in December 2010. Nowadays, Alliance Champagne Group is just as committed to preserving and perpetuating this ancestral tradition of excellence. The classic style and rich heritage of House Montaudon are still in evidence in every bottle we produce. Our signature grape variety, Pinot Noir, provides the familiar freshness and power.
