At the beginning of this century, Justin-Marcel Monmousseau, the nephew and successor of Alcide at the head of the House of Monmousseau, discovered great similarities between the terroirs and grape varieties of the vineyards of Champagne and those of Touraine. He managed to make a Great Wine, according to the method used by Dom Pérignon, that he had had the opportunity of carefully studying. Within less than 5 years, he entered “The Fine Sparkling Wine Market” and became internationally renowned. As of 1930, the sparkling wines of Justin Marcel Monmousseau were distributed throughout Europe, including at the dinner table of Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden. They were notably sold in the United States and Japan, where they are still popular today.
After the death of Justin-Marcel in 1972, the family dynasty continued up until 1994.
At present, the House of Monmousseau counts among the main producers of fine sparkling wines, according to the “Méthode Traditionnelle”, of AOC Touraine, Vouvray, Cremant de Loire, and has also developed a range of highly expressive Still Wines from Touraine.
