A former winemaker for RUINART, Mumm and Maison Perrier-Jouët has created his own line of champagne thanks to a crowdfunding campaign.

With street cred from some of the most prestigious champagne houses in the world, Jean Philippe Moulin gained the trust of crowd-funding platform Nakedwines.com, where investors forked over €500,000 to get his line of bubbly off the ground.

The result is a series of four new champagnes baptized Jean Philipe Moulin Champagne that includes a Blanc de Blanc, a non-vintage Brut, Rosé Champagne, and vintage Champagne.

Nakedwines.com could be described as the Kickstarter for wine, as the crowd-funding platform allows wine lovers to fund promising, independent winemakers in exchange for wholesale prices.

To repay his investors, Moulin is offering special prices exclusively for his ‘angels,” starting at $29.99 for the bottle of non-vintage Brut.

So far, the champagne has received a top rating, with 96 percent of 67 sippers saying they would buy it again.
