Domaine Fond Moiroux was founded in 1789. The estate is located in the village of Cogny in South Beaujolais. This zone is known as the “land of the golden stones” due to the color of the omnipresent sandstone also used for the construction of the cellar itself. Wine from pure Gamay grapes is produced in several different appellations including Beaujolais, Brouilly, Beaujolais Village and Moulin á Vent. 4 ha of Chardonnay used for the estate’s white Burgundy and white Beaujolais has been planted 2010.With great succes the first BOURGOGNE BLANC has been launched in 2014.
From bud-break to harvest the grapes are strongly influenced by the often changing weather. All vineyards are carefully tended by hand and this enables reaching full maturity and great quality throughout the different parcels. As a part of the organic viticulture practices, aiming to limit the amount of chemicals needed, the space in-between the rows of vines is covered by cover crops to ensure appropriate water and nutrient competition. The clear goal is to produce well-structured and long lived wines expressing the identity of the terrior they come from. Harvesting only intact grapes enables us to obtain the best possible extraction of flavor compounds. This again results in wines of discrete opulence, fruit, elegance and silky soft tannins. Both The fruity fresh Beaujolais and Beaujolais Village and the structured Brouilly and Moulin á Vent express harmony and personality and have great ageing potential.
