Bouvet Ladubay

Bouvet Ladubay cellars entrance in Loire Valley, France

Founded in 1851 by Etienne Bouvet, Bouvet Ladubay is the second oldest sparkling wine-producing house in Saumur and one of France’s greatest producers of méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine, using the Loire Valley’s indigenous Chenin Blanc blended with small amounts of Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc for rosé.

In 1933, the Monmousseau family purchased the property and today continues to manage this legendary French estate. For Bouvet Ladubay, wine is a living art that must be practiced with wisdom, uniting tradition, experience, and the most finely tuned technology in the creation of refined, handcrafted wines of impeccable quality and consistency.
