Domaine Moillard Burgundy - France
About Domaine Moillard
Moillard, historically based in Nuits-Saint-Georges, in the Côte de Nuits, offers Domaine wines (Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune) and a traditional signature of Burgundy wines. The old documents of Nuits-Saint-Georges attest that the Moillard family already owned vineyards before the French Revolution. But the Winery saw a real boom in 1850, when Symphorien Moillard bought his first wines to satisfy an order too important for his own Domain, thus initiating his activity of wine trading. Since then, Moillard has carried out the meticulous job of wine making and aging to bring all their wines to their full potential.
Today, Maison Moillard has become a veritable institution in Nuits-Saint-Georges. It owns a 11.5 hectare domain in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Savigny-les-Beaune, Côte de Nuits Village and Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. The oenologists of Maison Moillard select the finest grapes from the best plots to give expression to the terroirs and Climats of Burgundy in all their diversity. Thanks to the ties formed over the years between Maison Moillard and the vineyard, they express the know-how passed down over several generations in the production and ageing of Burgundy’s wines and crémants.
As the head of a 11.5-hectare domain in Côte d’Or and on the strength of its status as a merchant with its own wine cellar, Maison Moillard has the pick of Grands Crus, Premiers Crus, villages and regional wines from the entire Burgundy region and several Burgundy Crémants. The vineyards are cultivated using sustainable wine-growing techniques. Treatment is limited to what is strictly necessary, respecting biodiversity, and is adjusted to the vines on each plot, depending on the vintage. As the oenologist Baptiste Corrot explains, yields are controlled: “we really limit the yields across the whole of the domain, especially for Pinot Noir. And as the grape harvest season draws near, the date is set very carefully, taking care to leave enough time for the grapes to reach perfect maturity. Healthy vines give fine grapes!”
